About The Performance
It’s not every day you get to see a 46-piece orchestra take the stage of the Ed Sullivan Theater--let alone, an orchestra fronted by progressive rock pioneer Peter Gabriel. Viewers worldwide were treated to brand-new orchestral reinventions of classic tracks and lesser-known gems spanning the GRAMMY winner’s solo career in this Live on Letterman webcast.
The New Blood Orchestra adds a richness and emotion to these blockbuster hits, taking them to an entirely new place while Gabriel’s smoky voice hovers above.
Gabriel may be playing well-known songs from decades past, yet this concert is anything but a nostalgia trip. With these dramatic rearrangements, the melodies we all know and love live on, and at the same time, his music–and, you could say, popular music as a whole–takes a big step forward. Take it all in with Peter Gabriel and the New Blood Orchestra Live on Letterman, presented by AT&T.
