CENTENNIAL, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–On Wednesday, April 23 at 7:30 p.m. local time, Fathom Events,
More2Screen, Eagle Rock Entertainment and Real World will take U.S.
moviegoers on a VIP experience for an exclusive concert event, “Peter
Gabriel: Back to Front.” Pre-recorded in October 2013 at
London’s O2, the show celebrates one of the most pioneering and
innovative artists of modern times, who will be honored with an
induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this April. Directed by
BAFTA winning director Hamish Hamilton, “Peter Gabriel: Back to Front”
reunites Gabriel’s original touring band from 1986 to mark the 25th
anniversary of the landmark album “So.” The concert includes hits like,
“Solsbury Hill,” “Digging in the Dirt,” “Sledgehammer,” “Mercy Street”
and “Don’t Give Up.” Gabriel continues to be at the vanguard of the
audio-visual experience by using the latest technology and a 5.1
surround sound mix to deliver a one-of-a-kind cinema event.
Tickets for “Peter Gabriel: Back to Front” are available at
participating theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com.
The event will be presented in more than 400 select movie theaters
around the country through Fathom’s Digital
Broadcast Network. For a complete list of theater locations and
prices, visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants
are subject to change).
“It has been wonderful working with Hamish Hamilton again and his very
talented team. I feel they have really caught what was unique about the
Back to Front tour, both visually and emotionally. My own sound crew has
also done a brilliant job,” said Peter Gabriel.
“Back to Front” offers a visual and narrative feast that brings the
viewer to the heart of the concert experience. The show opens with a
stark insight into the song-writing process with Peter Gabriel, house
lights on, trying to find the lyrical companions to a beautiful piano
melody. Who else would start a concert with a song they’ve not yet
finished? The creative journey is explored throughout the film and
culminates with a celebratory run through of the album “So,” what
Gabriel calls his ‘pop star moment.’ Previously unreleased and
re-imagined songs sit effortlessly beside classic hits to reflect
Gabriel’s status as a multi-dimensional artist.
“Peter Gabriel’s performance in ‘Back to Front’ will transport fans to
London’s iconic O2,” said Dan Diamond, senior vice president of Fathom
Events. “Being able to experience this remarkable artist and history of
hits on the big screen will be an exciting opportunity for old and new
