I haven't seen any comments about the name of the tour. "Back to Front". Does that have something to do with the staging (back of the stadium stage to start and front of stadium to end)? Or what part of (or all of) the catalog he'll play? Anyone got a guess?

BTW, I got a pair of row 2 center seats for Philly TWENTY MINUTES after they went on sale. Someone must have put them in their cart and then not purchased them. Lucky! Hopefully this isn't too close (he says, a bit embarrassed to make the statement). I'm not sure how high the stage and monitors will be and how they'll impact the view.

It means, that he brings something forgotten "back to front"...

Maybe he'll sing one of "his" old Genesis songs then.....could happen.....would be very interesting indeed, since a whole "new" generation of fans has this very unique chance to see Peter "live". Would be a great time for him to do it. What do you think?

That would be a good thing, Abro! Back to Front first sounded a bit militarian to me, but now it also has the meaning to me : To bring something good forward again !

My guess of what Front to Back is, for what its worth....
instead of starting with Red Rain and ending (depending on what version of SO you look at) with Excellent Birds, I think he will do the album from Back to Front. excellent birds to Red Rain....
I think it would make for a better climax at the intermission! Just my thoughts, thanks for listening.....Lone Palm, out

Back to front could mean,
He starts of with the 'Back' catalog, in this case- the reason for the tour- the complete SO- and then after a 15 minute intermission, he then selects songs from the rest of his collection- from #1 to UP and then to the 'Front' the very new stuff we've been teased about....

I Vote for Iore's description... Secret World, San Jacinto seem to be guaranteed...different for In Your Eyes not as encore, unless a repeat of it? Wouldn't complain!

I don't think there's any deep meaning affixed to the theme for this anniversary tour, rather when you complete something in it's entirety, in a single sitting, it is said to be "from front to back", as in cover to cover, erego it is a simple play on words to present "SO" in it's entirety.
