Peter Gabriel @ Summerfest

June 30th, 2011

My local paper has a review of Peter Gabriel’s performance last night at Summerfest in Milwaukee.

The Milwaukee date was the last stop on Gabriel’s U.S. tour, and he seemed loose and grateful, introducing all of the permanent New Blood players individually and giving shout-outs to the backstage crew. Gabriel has taken some criticism for his recent shift away from rock and into orchestral music, but it was clear Wednesday that the Red Blood project as both rejuvenated and humbled him. And it made for a very unusual, but very special, Summerfest night.

And here’s a snippet of “Solsbury Hill” from the show.
