Peter Gabriel has announced his first European tour in almost a decade.
The 72-year-old musician – who is the original lead singer of prog rock group Genesis – is set to hit the road next spring for the 22-date ‘i/o The Tour’, which kicks off on May 18 in Krakow, Poland.
Fans can expect new material from Peter’s forthcoming album ‘i/o’ – the follow-up to 2011’s ‘New Blood’ – alongside old classics.
He said: “It’s been a while and I am now surrounded by a whole lot of new songs and am excited to be taking them out on the road for a spin. Look forward to seeing you out there.”
The ‘Sledgehammer’ hitmaker will be joined on the run by his regular band members Tony Levin, David Rhodes and Manu Katché.
Tickets go on sale on Friday 11 November 2022 at LiveNation.com.
Meanwhile, this summer saw Peter honored with a Silver Clef award at the O2 Silver Clef Awards for his outstanding contribution to music.
He said of the accolade: “I’m delighted to receive the O2 Silver Clef award. I’ve always believed the role of music goes way beyond entertainment, and I’m convinced that sound and light have a critical role to play in therapies and healing in the future. It’s wonderful to see Nordoff Robbins using music to reach young people, who otherwise would feel much more isolated and vulnerable, and giving them a means of expressing their emotions. I’m working on a project called Reverberation – on the impact of music on the brain and body, so this award is very timely. I fully support Nordoff Robbins’ belief in exploring and expanding the positive role music can have for everyone in our society.”
