Wednesday, April 23. Or as I like to call it…Peter Gabriel movie night!

Musically speaking, September 24, 2012 was one of the greatest nights of my life. I saw Peter Gabriel from about the 8th row at the TD Garden in Boston. His tour celebrated the 25th anniversary of his “So” album and he played this album in its entirety as well as several other classic Gabriel songs. We heard “Come Talk To Me,” The Family and the Fishing Net,” “Solsbury Hill, “In Your Eyes” and my favorite Gabriel song “Family Snapshot.” The entire show frankly blew me away.

And so it gives me immense pleasure to tell you that you can experience a 2013 show from London’s 02 arena on the silver screen. “Back to Front” includes all the songs and behind-the-scenes interviews. You’ve got just one night to catch the screening of “Back to Front”  in South Portland and even if you’re just a novice Gabriel fan, I ask you to trust me on this. I’ll be there and I can’t wait!

Here’s the trailer:
