Back to Front – Live in London captures the complete live performance of the So album from start to finish.  This spectacular live concert, filmed at London’s O2 over 2 nights in October 2013, using the latest Ultra High Definition 4K technology, captures Peter Gabriel’s celebration of the 25th anniversary of his landmark album So.

To mark the event, Gabriel reunited his original So touring band from 1986/87 (David Rhodes, Tony Levin, Manu Katché and David Sancious, with Jennie Abrahamson & Linnea Olsson) and for the very first time fans saw them play the multi-platinum selling album in its entirety.

As a bonus Back to Front includes “The Visual Approach” a fascinating feature on the creation of the live show. While the core of the performance is the So album, there is so much more to the concert with unfinished, previously unreleased and re-imagined songs sitting effortlessly alongside classic hits reflecting what a multi-dimensional artist Peter Gabriel is. With innovative lighting and staging, Back to FrontLive in London offers a visual and narrative feast that puts the viewer inside a concert like never before.

A notable inclusion in the concert is the song Daddy Long Legs, at the time a previously unheard and unfinished piece which opened the show. With the release of Gabriel’s current album i/o, the performance is revealed to be an early, work in progress rendition of the song Playing for Time.

Peter’s critically acclaimed new album i/o is out now on LP, CD and Digital
