Rockpalast – On the Air

On 15 September 1978, Peter Gabriel was recorded live at Grugahalle, Essen in Germany for the now legendary Rockpalast TV programme.

We’ve recently been granted the rights to use the footage, so we’ll be adding tracks from the performance to Peter’s You Tube channel over the next few weeks. First up is the live set-opening On the Air.

In 1978 Peter’s live band was:
Peter Gabriel – vocals and piano
Tony Levin – bass, vocals
Jerry Marotta – drums, vocals
Sid McGuiness – guitar, vocals
Larry Fast – synthesiser
Timmy Capello – keyboard, saxophone

For Rockpalast:
Director – Christian Wagner
