Eagle Rock Entertainment has officially announced that it will release on Blu-ray/DVD Peter Gabriel: Live In Athens. The release will be available for purchase online and in stores across the United States on September 17th 2013.
Even though he’s one of my all-time favorite artists, I’ve never seen Peter Gabriel live, and this brilliant Blu-ray edition of his 1987 concert in Athens, Greece, Live in Athens, makes me regret that all the more. Because it’s just amazing, and while dated in some ways, puts most modern "artists" to absolute shame.
Peter Gabriel is offering fans the first taste of the visual component of the upcoming, and somewhat belated, 25th anniversary reissue of his So album in the form of this 1-minute clip of "Sledgehammer" from the newly restored "Live in Athens 1987″ DVD — formerly the Martin Scorsese-produced concert film "PoV" — that will be included in the deluxe box set version of the reissue. That set, which includes four CDs, two DVDs, two vinyl records and a 60-page book, is due out Oct. 23.
