I was Hoping in the upcoming album in the fall it will have live footage from the concerts. The visuals and music was awesome. I got to see this in Saratoga Springs NY, Just above Albany and was blowen away. I have wanted to see Peter Gabriel since i was 15, and got the chance this past month at the age of 30. I was blowen away by the experience and the setting of Saratoga. When they played in your eyes.I feel to tears. I accomplished something 15 years in the making. The New Blood O was mind-blowing. The 46 people worked there butt off and the composer was intense to watch. they could have done a documentary on just them. It was the BEST show i have EVER seen and i have seen many concerts, upwards of 12 in one summer. I was just glad to be apart of this and it was worth the scarife that i gave at work for this show.
Hey, haven't seen you post before. welcome to the site if you're new!
Regarding the visuals, there won't be any on the album proper (I'd imagine, anyway), but they ARE doing a DVD release, which is even better

LFD - welcome aboard!
Saratoga was such a great show! "Father/Son" definitely was a powerful moment! I actually liked the opening with "Heroes" even though it's not my favorite song, but the NB Orchestra was amazing on that one! I think the three highlights for me at Saratoga were "The Rhythm Of the Heat," "My Body Is a Cage," and "Biko." I heard that PG's crew and co-management were very very happy with the way this particular stop on the tour went. thanks for posting! Cheers!

Here is one more press resumee I found today.
It comments the development of the setlist on the North-America-Tour , the very wellcomed revival of Wallflower , Secret World and Biko in the New Blood Style, the success of the tour, PG's good voice and mood there and the thesis, that he will not close the project at the end of the year,because he feels so good with it.
