Ane Brun has been invited to join Peter Gabriel on his ‘New Blood Tour’, which will hit Europe, Canada and the US this spring. Gabriel and a large orchestra will perform songs from his new album ‘Skratch My Back’ and also a set of classic Peter Gabriel songs in an orchestral setting. Gabriel discovered Brun when they both performed at the Nelson Mandela ‘46664’ concert in Tromsø, Norway, in 2005.
Ane, on tour in Spain at the moment, said of the opportunity:
I’m very honored to go on tour with Peter Gabriel. I’ve listened to his music ever since I was ten years old and borrowed my older brother’s ‘So’ album. Many of his songs are absolute favorites of mine! I deeply respect him as a songwriter, musician and also his engagement in societal and human rights issues.
