Peter Gabriel will return to the U.S. this summer for another leg of his Growing Up tour. A tentative routing posted on the artist's official Web site kicks off June 7 in Mountain View, Calif., and runs through July 2 just outside Indianapolis. As it was for the 2002 shows, the site says a pre-sale option will be available for the new dates.
"The tour will be taking a different form to last year's [shows]," the site continues. "Those who saw that show will understand why it was simply not possible to take it everywhere we wanted to -- it required a huge amount of headroom to suspend something like 30 tons of equipment from the ceiling. The new tour will fit in more venues so, finally it looks like all those in Atlanta who have petitioned for a performance will be rewarded."
As previously reported, Gabriel will hit Europe later this spring, beginning April 24 in Stockholm. All the activity comes in support of his latest Geffen/Interscope album, "Up," which debuted in October at No. 9 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 309,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Meanwhile, next Tuesday (March 11) will bring the DVD debut of the 1994 home video "Secret World Live," chronicling Gabriel's 1993 tour of the same name. The release has been augmented with an unnamed bonus track, a "Quiet" remix of the track "Steam" that accompanies a photo montage, new interviews and behind-the-scenes footage, and a time-lapse film of the mammoth stage being assembled in Berlin.
