Peter Gabriel to leave his guitars and drums at home when he performs in Camden on June 25th - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Peter Gabriel has announced an upcoming tour which includes only a dozen shows in the U.S.; one of them will be at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, NJ, on Saturday, June 25th. Tickets go on sale this Saturday morning at 10 a.m. (pre-sale tickets are available here); tickets range from $45–$280.

Gabriel is performing with the New Blood Orchestra; the tour is being billed as the “no drums, no guitars” tour. His 2010 release Scratch My Back featured orchestral arrangements—with no drums or guitars—of covers of songs originally recorded by Bon Iver, Paul Simon, Talking Heads, Randy Newman, and others. According to “Gabriel will showcase new symphonic arrangements of deep cuts and classic smashes from his solo catalog. Following the run, Gabriel plans to release an album with the New Blood Orchestra, conducted by Ben Foster, featuring his catalog cuts remixed symphonically.”

Below, a couple of Gabriel classics (with drums and guitars) from his album So, which celebrates it’s 25th anniversary in May.
