Peter Gabriel announces first European tour in nearly a decade – Up News Info

Peter Gabriel has announced his first European tour in almost a decade.

The 72-year-old musician – who is the lead singer of progressive rock band Genesis – is set to hit the road next spring for the 22-date “i/o The Tour”, which kicks off May 18 in Krakow, Poland.

Fans can expect new material from Peter’s forthcoming album ‘i/o’ – the sequel to 2011’s ‘New Blood’ – alongside old classics.

He said, “It’s been a while and I’m surrounded by lots of new songs now and I’m excited to take them on the road for a spin. Can’t wait to see you there.”

The ‘Sledgehammer’ hitmaker will be joined on the run by his band regulars Tony Levin, David Rhodes and Manu Katché.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, November 11, 2022 on LiveNation.com.

Meanwhile, this summer Peter received a Silver Clef award at the O2 Silver Clef Awards for Outstanding Contribution to Music.

He said of the accolade: “I am delighted to receive the O2 Silver Clef award. I have always believed that the role of music goes far beyond entertainment, and I am convinced that sound and light have a vital role to play in therapies and healing in the future. It’s wonderful to see Nordoff Robbins using music to reach young people, who would otherwise feel much more isolated and vulnerable, and give them a way to express their emotions. I’m working on a project called Reverberation – about the impact of music on the brain and body, so this award is timely. I fully support Nordoff Robbins’ belief in exploring and expanding the positive role music can have for everyone in our society.
