Peter Gabriel – Back To Front 2012 - 09.24.12 Boston, MA. I was there. 10 years ago already. My how time flies.
My recollection of this show was that it was very poorly attended, which Wkipedia confirms. I bought tickets in the first row of the upper balcony, way at the back, because I didn't want to have to wear ear plugs. I got there and they told us that the upper sections were closed and here are my "upgraded" seats... right at the side of stage next to a wall of speakers. I sat down in that seat for about 10 seconds and said, "No way" and went back to the person who handed me the tickets. I asked for tickets further back. She looked at me like I had two heads. I moved back about 3 sections and it was still too loud for my right ear.
But it was a really good show. Peter looked much older than 62 up on the big screen, but his voice was pretty strong. I don't think he's come back to Boston again since this show.
From Feather's liner notes...
Of 'Gary's Notebook', Lee says, "Gary's a friend of mine, and he's real serious - quite an intellectual guy. No matter what he's doing, whether he's riding the subway or just sitting around the house, he's always doodling, or figuring something out - he's a musician too and he's working with the Schllinger system. The tune is a blues, which is a simple form, but there's a lot to play. The line is not too simple, and that's the way Gary is - a basic guy but kind of deep."
That sounds like a different Gary.
