Peter Gabriel Announces North American Tour and Box Set to Celebrate 25th Anniversary of Landmark So Album

In 1986 Peter Gabriel released the nine-track album So to little fanfare. However, once MTV got a hold of his innovative videos for the singles Sledgehammer and Big Time, the LP crossed over into the mainstream and made it to the #2 spot on the Billboard 200. Taking a little liberty with the actual anniversary, Gabriel will embark on a North American Tour with many of the musicians from the So touring band to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the album’s release starting on September 16th in Quebec City.
