Peter Gabriel - Live In Athens 1987 & Play (DVD/Blu-Ray)

This is a fantastic package containing both the Live In Athens live show complete with Youssou N'Dour's opening set for the first time and also the Play DVD featuring 23 original promotional videos. Both discs are packed with Peter Gabriel classics.

In October 1987 after many months on the road, it was in the elevated surroundings of the hillside open-air theatre at Lycabettus overlooking Athens, that the So tour came to a climactic close. Filmed over three nights, this was the first time Peter Gabriel set out to capture a full concert on film and who better to do so than renowned cinematographer and director Michael Chapman and executive producer Martin Scorsese. As a concert film, it was brilliantly shot and has now been equally brilliantly remastered, a crystal-clear record of Gabriel and band in their mid-80s pomp.

Live In Athens 1987 places the viewer right in the heart of the action all the way, from the band's synchronized choreography on opening number 'This Is The Picture,' right through to the skin-pricking closer 'Biko.' In between, we're lost in music, spellbound by the spectacle, totally absorbed by the imperfection free tightness of a band that's been on the road for so long.
