Peter Gabriel: New Blood Live in London
Filmed in high definition, New Blood Live in London captures Peter Gabriel performing live with the 46-piece New Blood Orchestra. The repertoire mixes covers of other artists' songs from his Scratch My Back album with classic tracks spanning Gabriel's solo career in brand new orchestral arrangements. These classics include "Biko," "Red Rain," "Solsbury Hill," "Don't Give Up," "Blood of Eden," "The Rhythm of the Heat," "Mercy Street," "Intruder," and more. Gabriel is a renowned performer and his onstage charisma plus instantly recognizable voice combine brilliantly with the orchestral sound palette to breathe a new sense of wonder into familiar songs. This DVD is a visual feast: the drama of the orchestra, conducted by the spirited Ben Foster; the stage bathed in red light and shadows; huge onstage screens with graphics, animation and imagery blending to enhance and illustrate the music. Bonus features include Blood Donors---the story behind the project, featuring an interview with Peter Gabriel.
