Can it really be 25 years since Peter Gabriel released So? It is, because he just announced plans for a So 25th Anniversary Tour. Rounding up members of the original So touring band, Gabriel will be playing the album in its entirety. Don't worry, there'll be an additional set of hits as well. (Has Peter Gabriel ever performed less than two hours?) The tour, titled Front to Back, will hit 13 cities, including Jones Beach on September 23. All dates are listed below.
Peter Gabriel's camp says fan club presales begin May 31 with general onsale to follow, but for U.S. shows already up on Ticketmaster (not Jones Beach) it says fan club presales begin May 29. (Canadian dates go on sale tomorrow.) There's a number of VIP packages as well.
Additionally, Gabriel will release a 3-CD collectors edition of So as well, so... look out for that too.
