Lay Your Hands on Me

Peter Gabriel performing Lay Your Hands on Me, from his fourth solo album, live at the Lycabettus theatre in Athens in October 1987.

On stage are PG, Tony Levin (bass), David Rhodes (guitar), David Sancious (keyboards) and Manu Katché (drums).

“It’s a trust exercise. I had spent a long time thinking about how to bridge the border between performer and audience. I thought ‘maybe the ultimate thing you could do as a performer would be to fall backwards off the stage.’ – pg
