Peter Gabriel & The New Blood Orchestra
Without doubt one of the most creative musicians today, the brit Peter Gabriel, has had a career branded by innovation: in the early 70′s, he was one of the founders of one of the main bands in the history of rock, Geneses. In 75 he left the band and began flirting with pop and folk genres. In 77, he released his first solo album. In the 80′s he joined David Byrne in establishing the genre known as world music, in which pop earned a richer flair with a African and Indian beats. In 1986, he became a super star with the release of his album So, which included hits such as Sledgehammer, which has to this day the most played music video on MTV. He was also responsible for the soundtrack of the movie Passion, 1989, another great hit. In the 90′s Gabriel released US (1993) and ten years later the album Up (2004), a great hit for both critics and fans. Peter Gabriel‘s new album, Scratch My Back, was released in February 2011, and includes instrumental covers of David Bowie, Paul Simon and Neil Young, amongst others. Since March of this year Peter is touring with The New Blood Orchestra, the first guitar and drum-less concert to be seen in Europe and has been deemed a “must see” by critics.
