Peter Gabriel at Red Rocks, 9/30/12


Shortly before launching into an epic set that spanned nearly three hours at Red Rocks last night, Peter Gabriel took the tack of a well trained maître d', explaining that the program would come in three courses, kicking off with a four-song acoustic set followed by "electric bit" composed of tunes pulled from the entirety of his thirty-year-plus career, culminating with a song-by-song recreation of the seminal 1986 album So. The 62-year-old then went on to deliver a stunning and rich show that mixed top-notch musicianship and performance art with a knack for old-fashioned theatrics.
