    Live Tracks


    Peter Gabriel surprised his fans in the summer of 2007 with a compilation of songs and rarities on a free CD as part of the newspaper Mail On Sunday. Also, quite spontaneously, he went on an open air tour with a very intersting selection of songs. The setlist from the Warm Up Tour was the result of a poll on his own website. As a result, he played tracks he had not played live for a very long time. For fans, it was also great to know that all shows were once again released as official bootlegs by TheMusic.com. All performed tracks are available on CD. The band had also rehearsed (but not played) the following tracks: Waiting For The Big One, And Through The Wire, This Is The Picture (Excellent Birds), Love To Be Loved, Make Tomorrow Today and The Drop...
