Yes, I had my reservations going into the concert. The visionary Peter Gabriel succumbing to one of the hoariest over-the-hill classic rock tricks – playing with an orchestra? Really? Call me a cynical old rock critic, but I feared that things might go woefully wrong.
Fortunately, I’m thrilled to report that I was wrong. Dead wrong.
Gabriel is playing just a handful of concert dates in the U.S., but one of them is scheduled for SPAC on Monday, June 27.
Gabriel is touring with the New Blood Orchestra, proudly proclaiming “no drums, no guitars.” He will be re-visiting his back catalog of hits – from “Red Rain” to “San Jacinto,” from “Digging in the Dirt” to “Don’t Give Up” – with an orchestral spin.
There are no detail yet regarding ticket prices or on-sale date. Stay tuned…
