By Don Chareunsy
Legendary singer-songwriter Peter Gabriel brought his “So Live” tour to PH Live at Planet Hollywood on Friday night, and the original 1987 lineup was onstage with the acclaimed artist.
Gabriel’s hit album was reissued Sept. 18 as a CD, special-edition 3-CD set and a super-deluxe box set. The five-time platinum-selling album debuted at No. 1, is Gabriel’s bestselling CD and includes the hits “Sledgehammer,” “Big Time,” “Red Rain,” the duet “Don’t Give Up” with Kate Bush and “In Your Eyes,” one of the 1980s’ most iconic love songs featured in the 1989 John Cusack film “Say Anything.”
Gabriel’s last album, “New Blood,” was released in October 2011. Guitarist David Rhodes and bassist Tony Levin joined Gabriel, 62 and the former lead singer and flautist of Genesis, onstage at PH Live. Thanks to contributing photographer Erik Kabik for his photo gallery.
