The veteran rock artist dips into his vast back catalogue in Hamish Hamilton’s concert-film, recorded in London over two days in October 2012.
To mark its 25th anniversary, Peter Gabriel, set out on a tour which would see him play his classic 1986 breakthrough album SO in its entirety for the first time. The SO album was Gabriel’s bold leap from the experimental margins into the mainstream and a benchmark of intelligent avant-garde pop music.
Hamish Hamilton’s film of the BACK TO FRONT experience, shot over two nights at The O2 in London, gives you a real glimpse behind the mask, from the stage, placing the viewer at the heart of the Peter Gabriel live experience with more in-the-room precision than ever before. Bold, brilliant and crystal vivid – this is the picture.
Contains the whole of “So” performed live plus other classic tracks. Includes SLEDGEHAMMER, SOLSBURY HILL, DON’T GIVE UP, SHOCK THE MONKEY, DIGGING IN THE DIRT, MERCY STREET, NO SELF CONTROL, IN YOUR EYES, BIKO plus previously unreleased songs and theatrical version of BACK TO FRONT.
