Peter Gabriel’s 1986 album, So, was one of the most iconic and successful music releases of the ’80′s and now it’s been digitally remastered for a special 25th Anniversary Edition, set for release October 23rd via RealWorldRecords/EMI in a variety of configurations.
But, despite its October release date, the remastered Anniversary Edition is available NOW for pre-order, and a video description of the box set has been released to get you pumped up (as well as let you know all the details). Excited? I am! Watch the description below!
As if everything else weren’t enough, Peter Gabriel has confirmed a 16 date North American tour for September and October, with many of the musicians from his 1987 ‘So’ tour joining him to perform the album from start to finish, as well as other hits spanning his solo career.
Peter Gabriel’s So topped charts around the world, hitting Number 1 in the UK, Canada, Italy, and Holland and Number 2 in the US and Germany. The album became decade-defining and the best selling release of Gabriel’s solo career, landing an international array of multi-Platinum certifications, including quintuple-Platinum in the US with sales of more than five million copies!
And if you’re still confused as to its iconic status, the album launched with the massive hit single “Sledgehammer” – and its groundbreaking music video which remains MTV’s most played video of all time. But the album also includes “In Your Eyes” which was oh so famously featured in Cameron Crowe’s film ‘Say Anything.’ And really, who can hear that song and not think of John Cusack standing stalkerishly outside a window with his boom box hoisted above his head?
