Last year, art-rock god Peter Gabriel released the incredible 25th anniversary box set for his 1986 classic So (Pause for math on that one), which included the long-awaited DVD version of the ‘Live in Athens’ concert (which previously existed on VHS). But now fans won’t have to sell their kidneys on the black market to raise enough money for it: On September 17, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release remastered 2DVD/DVD, Blu-Ray sets of the concert, making it the first time the concert has been available on its own.
When it comes to actual recorded output, Peter Gabriel is one of the most unpredictable songwriter/producers in music history. (It’s been over a decade since his last studio album of original material.) In recent years, he’s released two albums of all-orchestral material: 2010′s cover-versions project Scratch My Back and 2011′s New Blood, which featured re-interpretations of his own material.
More good Gabriel news: He recently wrote the instrumental score (along with an original song) for the spiritual-based film Words with Gods.
