Special Event: Peter Gabriel I/O tour

Saw the show last night in Toronto, it was FANTASTIC. I thought there might be other fans on the Blue (purple) since I found out about the tour via this thread. The US leg is just getting kicked off so maybe we can get some discussion going here. First thoughts: amazing ensemble, amazing visuals. I had hoped he would not lean quiiiite so hard into the new material but that's his prerogative. I feel like Peter struggled a bit to hit the high notes in spots but was still a consummate showman as always. Ayanna Witter-Johnson was particularly stunning on cello and vocals throughout (she had to be Kate Bush, AND Sinead, and herself...and a cello.) Might be the last tour. Peter is 73, and his session bassist Tony Levin is 77. [at age 52 I suspect I was barely on the right side of the age distribution median]
