Peter Gabriel will hit the road this fall to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his biggest album to date, So. Starting in September, he’ll perform the 1986 album – which spawned iconic hits like “In Your Eyes” and “Sledgehammer” — in its entirety.
The 13-date outing, titled Back To Front, will see 10 of those dates being played in the states (the other three in Canada). Fans should note that a pre-sale starts this Wednesday (May 23) and VIP options are available, like being invited to soundcheck. In addition to the track list from So, each night’s set will also include hits from Gabriel’s 15-album catalog. Accompanying Gabriel for the anniversary outing will be members of the original So touring band.
Also coming in September will be a re-issue of So, to be released shortly before the tour starts on September 18th. Fans will have the option to buy the 1986 release as a single CD, a special edition 3-CD box set and something that’s being billed as a “super deluxe box set.”
