Peter Gabriel's association with spectacle stems from his days with Genesis in the early 1970s. The English singer didn't reach back that far Thursday at a fairly full United Center, yet his affinity for visual pageantry seldom waned.
Peter Gabriel’s performance at the United Center on Thursday night was a celebration of transformation. One instance found a seemingly harmless, giant, donut-shaped prop hung above the performers, slowly falling to the ground and encircling Gabriel during "The Tower That Ate People".
The tour that finally brings Peter Gabriel to Las Vegas is, almost ironically, something you would expect on the Strip: his biggest-selling and best-known album ("So") played start to finish, following a popular drift in the concert industry.
Peter Gabriel performed at PH Live at Planet Hollywood Resort as part of the "SO Live — performed by the original 1987 lineup" Tour on Friday night. Photographer Erik Kabik shared some of his best photos from the concert.
Peter Gabriel waxed nostalgic Saturday night at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl, where he too unpacked 1986′s So in its entirety. For his performance of the album’s closing track, "In Your Eyes", Gabriel brought out actor John Cusack. Eighties enthusiasts, or anyone that’s ever attended high school, will recall that Cusack forever immortalized the rousing track in Cameron Crowe’s 1989 classic, Say Anything…., as hapless romantic Lloyd Dobbler.
