Editorial Reviews

Filmed at Hammersmith Apollo in March of this year, New Blood Live In London captures Peter Gabriel performing live with the 46 piece New
Blood Orchestra. The repertoire mixes cover versions from his Scratch My Back album with classic tracks from across his solo career in brand
new orchestral arrangements. Gabriel is a renowned live performer and his onstage charisma and instantly recognizable voice combine brilliantly
with the orchestral sound palette to breathe a new sense of wonder into familiar songs. As you would expect the concert is also a visual feast, with
graphics, animation and imagery blending to enhance and illustrate the music. This is truly a live experience not to be missed.

Wow.

I mean, WOW.

Just got done watching this on a Sony XBR-HX929 46" 3D TV -- 2 hours of pure Peter Gabriel goodness... in 3D. I would have a hard time believing that being AT the concert would be better than seeing it like this, with all of the different 3D camera angles and the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround sound. The selection of songs includes everything from Peter's "New Blood" CD, and then some. The picture is amazingly sharp and the 3D cinematography is top-notch -- so much so that if I want to demo 3D to someone, I'll use this instead of "TRON Legacy" from now on. Peter is a consummate showman and it's clear that he puts a lot of effort into making his concerts unforgettable experiences.

Other musicians need to watch this video and try to keep up. THIS is how you do a music concert on disc.

I just received my blu ray copy and watched the concert. It is simply amazing! First of all, the video and audio quality is the best it can get. I don't care for 3D so I have the normal version. All the songs have been re-worked for orchestra and they are mind blowing. If I had to single out songs, I would say Biko, Rhythm of the Heat, and Single to Noise will blow you away. Just to sum up, Peter is a man in full control of what he does, this is an amazing concert and concept. It is not just a rock concert with orchestra, it uses the orchestra as the main elements. You need to experience it for yourself. Very highly recommended.

Get a big screen TV, turn up the volume, push play. The next thing you know it will be over. The orchestral arrangements are so compelling and powerful that you can do little other than submit to them and not notice time passing by. I've seen the live concert a couple of times. In the theater I heard textural details in the mix that I didn't notice live, despite the live sound being great too. Details that, as a composer, blew me away. If you have a good sound system, and let yourself just be drawn in, you won't miss the drums and theater of previous tours. The visual effects are first rate anyway - no gimmicks required. The sound in the theater was as first rate as movie theater sound gets, so I would expect nothing less on a good home theater system.

The 3D in the theater was very effective.

In addition to PG fans, this is a MUST BUY for anyone into orchestral music or who wants an introduction to creative orchestral textures!

This is an excellent item for every Peter fan. I ordered mine thru his website and received it in mid October (the time it was released overseas). It has fantastic photos along with the blu ray and standard definition DVD's of the concert. There is also a studio CD and live CD of New Blood. My only concern is that the 'Frequently Purchased Together' items are found all in this selection. Doesn't seem to spend almost $30 more for individual items when you can save some money and get it in this Deluxe Import. Any fan cannot go wrong with this purchase.

Watch this on a 60" Samsung 3D plasma television and it was amazing. It appears all the camera work was done with 3D in mind and with HD cameras. It really makes you feel like this is better then going to the concert and it was for me.
I hope other artists give Peter Gabriel a call and inquire how they casn do this on their next concert tour, as well. I will be buying more 3D concerts in the future for sure.

Several weeks ago I purchased Gabriel's dual disc which I gave a 5.0 rating (Oct. 29, 2011). Buying this concert version of the music was a no brainer especially in Blu ray with a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 treatment. I wasn't disappointed. The concert is long at 162 minutes so there is no cheat on that score. That's more than double the time on the CD and adds about 7 songs.

Gabriel is no slouch on audio and video tricks and often adds some of his own sound effects to the songs. He also plays around with one of those small cameras that hang from the ceiling. This goes on too long and too often for my taste. While in full voice Peter Gabriel is still a strong vibrant singer but in the brief interludes between songs he talks in a near whisper even while the audience is still clapping. This makes some of the introductions incomprehensible.

I can't speak highly enough of the fine "New Blood" orchestra assembled for this project. Led by young conductor Ben Foster, they are brilliant. There are no guitars and no drum kits, but there are 50 or so top notch musicians and are masterfully synched to play the great arrangements by John Metcalfe. Gabriel has vocal backing by his daughter Melanie who has a few solos within the songs and Ane Brun whose voice sounds a bit frail on her one feature ("Don't Give Up"). Uzbek singer Sevara Nazarkhan shows up for one song ("In Your Eyes") as well.

The direction that appears on the Blu ray is well done by Blue Leach. The cameras are well located giving different angles of the singers and the conductor. Still, it's all about the sound. The surround versions put you about 15 rows deep in the center. This is not the Peter Gabriel remembered from the 1980's.
