notes by the trader
If Peter Gabriel came to me and asked that I put a set list together, this is what I would give him. Our dream concert begins with Shankar as our opener, setting the mood for what's to come. Peter's standard opener, "Come Talk to Me," from "Us" gets us going. "Security" (to my ears, his "best" post Genesis work) experiments with rhythm, melody and percussion like no one had before. "Rhythm of the Heat," the first of many selections from that album, quickly follows with its percussive intensity we'll hear many times during the course of the evening. We then speed into a series of songs exploring themes of birth and loss, belonging and exclusion-as might any good Peter Gabriel concert.

Side 2 starts with what I call the "African Suite:" "Across the River, Slow Marimbas, Shaking the Tree and Blood of Eden." In my mind and to my ears, this sequence of tunes is one song, each piece stronger for its companions. Now we enter the concert's middle section with a collection of uptempo songs from throughout Peter's career. We cascade through "Red Rain," "Kiss of Life" and "Games...;" tunes that showcase the richness of the artist's songwriting, arranging and performing gifts. The final song on Side 2, "Milgram's 37," hilariously shows Peter's savage ironic side as he exhorts, in fact, commands the audience to do as their told.

The songs on Side 3 have Peter singing about family, birth, death, culture, nature, and (again) inclusiveness. "Animal Nation" affirms our relationship to the natural world, with a beat. "I Grieve," a response to 9-11, is for me the most poignant and beautiful musical response to that tragic day. We are welcomed to the final third of the concert by "Secret World" ("...all the places we were hiding love").

Side 4 returns us to the "Security" era, opening with "Lay Your Hands on Me" into "Shock the Monkey" and then segueing into the masterpiece "San Jacinto." The show ends with particularly energetic "In Your Eyes" (of course) and the rarely performed "No Way Out." A special guest joins Peter for this concert's namesake, "Don't Give Up" which seems especially suited to the current times, and works as a perfect prelude to "Biko," a piece about a political prisoner. A gorgeous, emotional "Here Comes the Flood" is followed by the palate cleanser (as Peter calls it), "The Nest That Sailed the Sky. " that closes our dream concert.
