The Tower Theatre Foundation’s exclusive series of concert and behind-the-scenes documentaries on renowned rock music performers continues December 30 with Peter Gabriel: New Blood Live in London.
This 2011 concert captures the iconic singer performing live with a 46-piece orchestra, breathing a new sense of wonder into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer’s most familiar songs. The repertoire in New Blood mixes cover versions of hits by David Bowie, Lou Reed, Radiohead, Regina Spektor and Neil Young from Gabriel’s 2010 Scratch My Back album with classic tracks from across his solo career.
As a musician, songwriter and activist who rose to fame as the lead vocalist of the progressive rock band Genesis, Gabriel remains a renowned live performer. His onstage charisma and instantly recognizable voice justify his six Grammys, 13 MTV Video Music Awards, and the BMI Icon Award. As you would expect from the technologically groundbreaking Gabriel, this film is a visual feast, blending graphics, animation and imagery to enhance and illustrate the music.
The series continues January 13 with Paul McCartney & Wings: Live from Seattle 1976. All films are rated PG and start at 7pm.
