I am a fan but I'm not a fan of what he's doing this time around...y sister in law saw him last go round at Radio City and she was underwhelmed.

I last saw him on his "Growing Up" Tour (twice), at Mogehan Sun Arena in 2002
and at Great Woods in 2003. Those shows were just superb. As far as his
current album goes, my first impression of "Scratch My Back" is that it's a bit
of a sleeper. Maybe I need to listen to it few more times. His voice sounds as
fine as ever, but the orchestral arrangements made me a bit sleepy after
my first full listen of the CD. Would love to see him back with Tony Levin,
David Rhodes and the rest.

big fan. well big fan of his first 5 albums not counting any soundtrack work. i like US and UP pretty well too. i have the covers album he is touring on and its ok but not enough energy. he turns every tune into a funeral dirge

I have heard that this tour is not the traditional rock concert format.

Ed, I'm with you. Major Peter Gabriel fan but I've been investigating his shows with New Blood Orchestra and although I did hear some very beautiful renditions of some of Gabriel's tunes (a very nice San Jacinto) I think I'll save my concert dollars for something with more energy.
