STILL GROWING UP 2004 TOUR
A little information on the forthcoming dates has found it's way to us.
Speaking of the new dates, Peter said:
We all had a great time on the Growing Up tour last year, but sadly we couldnt take it to as many places as we wanted to, so we decided to come back for part 2. Im particularly looking forward to playing in some of the places I havent performed for many years
Peter's taking The Growing Up Tour out of storage and back out on the road. The STILL GROWING UP 2004 TOUR will come to the UK in June and will be the finale of a 23 date European tour.
The Still Growing Up 2004 Tour follows on from last years Growing Up Tour, which again brought together Gabriel and leading theatrical director Robert Lepage who collaborated on the ground breaking Secret World Tour in 1993.
There will be new material and theatrics in the show. Staged in the round, fans will be able to see Gabriel suspended upside down from the stage and performing inside the now famous giant inflatable Zorb ball. With boats, balls and bicycles, it is a unique and memorable combination of sound and vision.
The new dates will showcase songs from across Peter's career, including tracks from UP and some of his biggest hits, which feature on his most recent double album, HIT. New material such as Burn You Up, Burn You Down will be performed as part of the tour for the first time, along with a raft of his biggest songs, including Sledgehammer, Solsbury Hill, Mercy Street and Red Rain. The show also features poignant renditions of songs, such as Father Son from the OVO album in 2000.
The new tour sees Peter team up again with guitarist David Rhodes and bass player Tony Levin, with Richard Evans on guitars, mandolin and whistle, Ged Lynch returning on drums and Rachel Z on keyboards. Daughter Melanie joins her father once again on stage on vocals.
