I know this will probably be moved, but fuck it. And this may not get many views, but fuck it. I know there are some Peter Gabriel fans here..somewhere:eyes:
where are you Brad?!?

This show was absolutely fucking great. It was at the Starlight Theater and my first time being there and it's really nice, not a bad seat in the house :party:

Any who, this show was unlike any I've been to before. Hands down. The atmosphere, the mood was extremely different. The night started off with Gabriel coming on stage and introducing the whole thing as well as one of the women in the orchestra, and she does a little two song folk set, and it was pretty good:party:
After she went off about 5 minutes later the orchestra began playing David Bowie's "Heroes" and that was their first song. The set continued with a few more surprising covers(but very good) covers. Then he went on to his own material. And it was fantastic :D I was really skeptical, excited, but skeptical about the addition of the orchestra and the removal of EVERYTHING else. But it turned out very good. Overall the orchestra was very tight sounding, it even contained musicians from here in KC(how they did that in time I'm not sure). But it sounded great. The orchestra versions sounded great, and were very interesting to hear. The songs sounded different, but still had the familiarity to them. And Gabriel's voice was perfect. Exactly the same as on record.
Overall the this night was pretty badass, and to any Peter Gabriel fans(BECAUSE I KNOW YOU ARE HERE), I would recommend it. Absolutely fantastic
.

Here's the set. Might be the slightest bit of out of order and I had to get a couple of song titles from Setlist.fm, but it's pretty legit.

Wallflower
Après Moi(Regina Spektor cover)
The Boy in the Bubble(Paul Simon cover)
My Body is a Cage(Arcade Fire)

Kate Bush is my favorite artist of all time and Peter Gabriel worked with her several times so I like him. I've listen to early Genesis too.

Yeah, that's a good set. I'm seeing him in Milwaukee on the 29th, 14TH ROW!!! I'm a little skeptical about the orchestra, but every review I've read is very positive, so I'm sure it will be good.

When he said this next one is by Arcade Fire I was like what the fuck? But it's actually very good. He made every cover his own.

I was to, but like I said, it sounds great. There isn't as much energy as there would be normally, but it fits very well. It's a whole different experience, and it was worth it :party:

One of the back up singers, he had two female vocalists with him.

:eek: No Sledgehammer?!?! I thought that song was huge since I used to see the video all the time as a kid when MTV was a real channel.

Seriously? You've never heard Solsbury Hill or In Your Eyes? Really?

Yes, that was a huge song for him but this is a tour with an orchestra. I'm not sure the song would sound that good with the arrangements.

I am going to this show Saturday in Jersey. My wife won the tickets! I wouldn't have been going otherwise. The tickets are sooooo expensive. But I am really looking forward to this show.

I think it would have worked, they had a couple of horns in the orchestra anyway, so I think it would have been cool.

No Shock the Monkey?

That would have been weird to hear with an orchestra.


He did leave out a few that I would have loved to hear with orchestra like Shakin' the Tree, Kiss That Frog, and Sledgehammer. Either way I wasn't disappointed :party:

So he doesn't do any early Genesis at all? I could even kind of see that working with an orchestra. I like Solsbury Hill but don't really listen to his solo stuff but I love early Genesis.

Everyone loves early Genesis but it's not gonna happen and it never will. He did Back in NYC in the '70s but nothing since.

Someone asked for Supper's Ready and he said..
"Super is ready, but it is being liquefied by a phenomena we know as..Red Rain."
