Peter Gabriel’s groundbreaking New Blood tour may not have found its way to Australian shores, but local fans won’t miss a note of the legendary singer’s latest musical venture at a special 3D cinema event at Hoyts Cinemas, Dendy Cinemas and selected independent cinemas from 25-28 August.

Filmed over two nights in March at London’s Hammersmith Apollo, Peter Gabriel’s New Blood 3D puts audiences in the front row as the former Genesis frontman gives an orchestral makeover to his solo back catalogue with the help of the 46-piece New Blood Orchestra.

The next best thing to being at the concert, Gabriel’s first 3D project was filmed entirely in glorious 3D by Blue Leach, the award-winning director whose credits include tours for R.E.M. and Snow Patrol.

The extraordinary show gives the orchestral treatment to some of Gabriel’s best-loved songs culled from right across his solo career, from “Solsbury Hill” to “Digging in the Dirt”.

Stripped of the traditional weapons of the rock armoury – no loud guitars or booming drums – Gabriel’s songs take on new shape and meaning.

Grant Calton of distributors Omniverse Vision said Peter Gabriel’s New Blood 3D allowed fans to experience a sense of being at the hallowed Hammersmith venue, with 3D visuals that go beyond gimmicks to immerse people in the concert.

“From his landmark performances with Genesis to his groundbreaking solo videos, Peter Gabriel has always been an innovator in visually presenting music and Peter Gabriel’s New Blood 3D continues this tradition,” said Calton.

“The film offers a new kind of cinema-going experience, capturing the sights and sounds of a live concert in spectacular 3D, and we’re excited to be bringing the film to Australian audiences for the first time.”
