Following hugely successful shows last year in Los Angeles and New York, he will take his stunning concert experience to 12 North American cities with the New Blood tour beginning Friday, June 10 in Berkeley, CA. After receiving astounding critical acclaim for the 2010 shows, Gabriel will perform classics from his deep catalogue including hits from his multiplatinum album “So”, which is celebrating its 25th Anniversary, all arranged with his New Blood Orchestra.

The shows precede the highly anticipated album from Peter Gabriel with the New Blood Orchestra later this year, also featuring these classic hits in reinterpreted orchestral arrangements.
Peter Gabriel first came to international prominence with the success of Genesis, a band that he co-founded while still at school. Since leaving Genesis in 1975, his recording career has included seven studio albums, film soundtracks for ‘Birdy’, ‘The Last Temptation of Christ’ and ‘Rabbit Proof Fence’ as well as live and compilation albums. His wider musical career has included multiple Grammy Awards, the creation of the Real World record label, and the creation of the now global WOMAD festival.
Peter Gabriel co-founded the human rights organization Witness.org in 1989 and in 2007 the Elders.org was launched by Nelson Mandela, which was founded by Peter Gabriel and Sir Richard Branson. In 2006, Peter Gabriel was awarded the prestigious Man of Peace title by The Nobel Peace Laureates.
