Published May 22, 2012Following the release of last year's New Blood, which saw Peter Gabriel reworking his own back catalogue with an orchestral twist and taking the new music on tour, the British art-rock vet has announced he will be hitting the road again come fall.
This time around, Gabriel is celebrating the 25th anniversary of his iconic 1986 album So. According to a press release, the "Back to Front Tour" will feature Gabriel reuniting with some members of the original So touring band to perform the album in its entirety, "plus some of his other biggest hits."
In addition to the tour dates, the album will be given the reissue treatment that's been in the works for a while now. Set to be released on September 18, So will be available as a CD, special edition three-CD set and a deluxe box set.
