He Also Asks Fans To Donate
To help raise funds for Italy’s fights against COVID-19, Peter Gabriel shared two rare concert films for free – Scratch My Back and Taking the Pulse – Live in Verona. Both videos were filmed during his show in Verona, Italy back in September 26, 2010. It was all in support of his eighth studio album which consisted of 12 orchestral cover versions.
On his website, Gabriel urged fans to donate to the Civil Protection Department or the Italian Red Cross.
He said, “For almost fifty years I have loved Italy, the people, the culture, the food, the history and more recently the island of Sardinia.
“Italy offered us work when there was none, especially each summer in the 70s, gigs were always found and some of our best and most chaotic tour experiences were when we were driving ourselves all over the country for a hodge-bodge of brilliant gigs, from seaside discos to football pitches in the mountains.
“Both Genesis and my music found wonderful and passionate audiences that used to sing along with us throughout the gigs and whenever I was doing a live album I would always ask first whether it could be arranged in Italy.”
He asked his daughter Anna to record the concert along with her collaborator Andrew Gaston. Check out the concert films below.
