Peter Gabriel announces arena tour for 2023; playing Wells Fargo Center in September - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Music icon Peter Gabriel is hitting the road again for the first time in nine years. The Genesis co-founder turned solo artist turned activist and visionary producer is going on a world tour this summer and fall in support of i/o, his tenth studio album, his first since 2011’s New Blood, and his first album of new, original material since 2002’s Us. That rundown alone is ample cause for excitement, and its multiplied when you consider the sonic possibilities of the album divided into a “Dark” side and a “Bright” side, with songs presented in two versions, differing in their tones and atmospheres.

Now, we have the full details of his North American and European tours for i/o; beginning in Poland in May, it travels Europe and the UK, making its way to North America in September for gigs in Quebec and Ontario before making its way to the states; Gabriel will headline the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on Saturday, September 16th, and tickets go on sale this Friday, March 10th at 10 a.m.

Gabriel will be backed on tour by Tony Levin on bass, David Rhodes on guitar and Manu Katché on drums; for i/o the album, he collaborated with engineers Tchad Blake and Mark ‘Spike’ Stent. Gabriel is rolling out new music from i/o on the full moon of each month, which began last month with a song called “The Court” and continued today with a song called “Playing For Time,” which you can listen to below. Tickets and more information on the Wells Fargo Center concert can be found at the WXPN Concerts & Events page.
