Peter Gabriel Revisits 'So' at Euphoric Jones Beach Concert

Peter Gabriel's Front to Back Tour, which features a complete performance of his 1986 LP So, is an unabashedly nostalgic affair. Yet the show begins with a song so new it doesn't even have complete lyrics. Accompanied only by longtime bassist Tony Levin, Gabriel began the night at Jones Beach outside New York by sitting at a piano and presenting a song called "Obut." It's a tender ballad that's clearly a work-in-progress, and it sent a message: even on a night as backwards-looking as this, Gabriel always has one eye on the future.

The rest of the evening was spent revisiting So and other works from Gabriel's 35-year solo career. The 62-year-old singer looks almost nothing like the guy in the "Sledgehammer" video, and he sounds almost nothing like the skinny kid who fronted Genesis in the early Seventies. His voice (not to mention his body) is huskier now, but it's still tremendously powerful, and in some ways more dynamic and fuller than it's ever been.

Committee recommends $648,000 Bangor Waterfront concert facility

BANGOR, Maine — After initially receiving eight bids from construction firms ranging from nearly $900,000 to $1.3 million for construction of a permanent Bangor Waterfront concert facility, councilors recommended a $648,000 plan.

Bangor City Council finance committee members Joe Baldacci, James Gallant, Pat Blanchette and Nelson Durgin voted to recommend approval by the full city council, which can vote on the project as early as Monday.

Only councilor and committee member Geoffrey Gratwick voted against approval.

“Maybe I missed a meeting because I wasn’t aware of this,” said Gratwick during Monday evening’s committee meeting. “This seems to be proceeding at a much faster pace than I was aware … and I’m doubting this due to the ongoing discussion we’ve heard about the [concert] noise issues from surrounding neighborhoods.”

Gratwick also had an issue with Waterfront Concerts and promoter Alex Gray not contributing money for the project, which has been budgeted for fiscal year 2013 and will be paid for with funds from the city’s downtown tax increment financing, or TIF, fund.
