Peter Gabriel @ The O2...

On Saturday night Paul, Simon and I went to see Peter Gabriel perform at The O2 Arena in London's glitzy Greenwich peninsula. My word it was a good night. And The Guardian agrees.

The show was the New Blood Tour 2010 promoting his recent Scratch My Back covers album. The first half was this new album with each track back to back and the second half was all the hits and more (the 'more' being a full orchestra.)

The light show was, as you might expect from the master of the visual, rather special too.

The set list was:

First Half
Sledgehammer (orchestra intro)
Heroes
The Boy In The Bubble
Mirrorball
Flume
Listening Wind
The Power Of The Heart
My Body Is A Cage
The Book Of Love
I Think It's Going To Rain Today
Apres Moi
Philadephia
Street Spirit (Fade Out)

Second Half
San Jacinto
Digging In The Dirt
Downside Up
Signal To Noise
Mercy Street
The Rhythm Of The Heat
The Drop
Darkness
Solsbury Hill

Encore
In Your Eyes
Don't Give Up
The Nest That Sailed The Sky
