    Peter Gabriel - PLAY LIVE!!

    If there are any UK Peter Gabriel fans out there, just letting them know myself and "Richluvsound" will be at his Blickling Hall gig on Sat 21 July. More details here http://www.petergabriel.com/live/ This seems to be the pick of the bunch of his UK gigs (I missed my local Ireland gig due to family committments ).

    His latest small scale European tour is getting rave reviews, probably because he's playing all the old classics from his first five albums (tracks like Family Snapshot, I Don't Remeber, etc.). Some recent setlists are here: http://www.petergabriel.com/live/tourdiary/

    Storm, here's some photo's.

    Rich and I were less than 10 metres from the stage and we could have gotten even closer if were'd tried. Don't think I will ever hear PG playing these tracks live again (he's 57!!).

    The venue was in the grounds of this stately English manor, complete with a pub right at the front gate.

    Yeah - THATS what I wanted to see - Tony Levin is awesome~!
    With his bass, or with that darned Chapman stick!
    I've seen him a number of times with Gabriel and with that other group he's played for (KC in the 80s Discipline era and later in the Double trio era) and he is just great. Nice big honkin' bass!

    Must've been a great show!
