So

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.

I wonder if it will be a straight forward thing or more theatrical like past tours?

10:38: You say that as if there is a remote chance that someone would even care.

Uh, "So" was released in 1986, which by my 3rd-grade edjucation was 26 years ago.

Just sayin'.

Might have been released in 87 in US?

Posted by Anonymous | May 22, 2012 12:12 PM

It hit #1 on Billboard's chart in July '86.

Correction: "Sledgehammer" hit Number One then; the album made it to Number Two around the same time.

gotta get up pretty early in the morning to put one over on 12:09. More uses for the RPN HP calculator!

Peter Gabriel has a camp?
If so how come he's releasing the collectors edition instead of just dropping it?

An superb posting with great points, We’ve been a lurker proper here for some time but wish to be far far more involved from now on.

The new Hot Chip album is so bad. Man, they've being getting worse and worse every album they've release. Sure. there are a few good tracks on each record, since The Warning, but I dare you to get through this new record! Make that a double dog dare!
