Peter Gabriel Growing Up Going HD With Reissue
(Kayos) Eagle Rock have announce a double release from Peter Gabriel on September 16, 2016, which will feature a reissue of the 2DVD set "Still Growing Up Live & Unwrapped" and for the first time a Blu-ray+DVD set of "Growing Up Live + Still Growing Up Live & Unwrapped" containing all the material from the original DVD releases plus the previously unreleased "Growing Up On Tour - A Family Portrait".
The "Growing Up Live" concert film was recorded on the tour of the same name from 2002/3 and boasts key tracks Sledgehammer, In Your Eyes, Solsbury Hill, Digging In The Dirt, More Than This, Red Rain, Growing Up, Mercy Street, Here Comes The Flood and more. "Still Growing Up Live & Unwrapped" includes the concert film of the Still Growing Up tour from 2004 and the "Unwrapped" film (both shot in standard definition), which give a more intimate look at Peter Gabriel on tour and explore the world behind the songs featured in the shows. The Blu-ray+DVD set has all the material from these three DVD discs included on one Blu-ray disc and one DVD. Also included on the Blu-ray disc is the Family Portrait film.
In 2002 and 2003, following the release of his album "Up", Peter Gabriel went on the road with his "Growing Up" tour, once again collaborating with production designer Robert Lepage to create a spectacular and theatrical live experience. The tour took in thirty-two cities across the USA, Canada and Europe with this concert film, directed by Hamish Hamilton, being shot over two nights at the FilaForum in Milan in May 2003 with Peter Gabriel and the band performing "in the round" at the center of the arena. Filmed in high definition, this was originally released on DVD in 2003 but never on Blu-ray. The DVD is now being reissued and the concert is being released on Blu-ray for the first time.
"Still Growing Up Live & Unwrapped" is taken from the "Still Growing Up" tour of 2004, which took Peter Gabriel and his band into smaller and more intimate venues in contrast to the large arenas chronicled in the "Growing Up Live" film. Award-winning director Hamish Hamilton reunites with Peter Gabriel for this concert film. The 'Unwrapped' film sees Anna Gabriel take over the director's chair with the collaboration of Hamish Hamilton. A simpler approach suggested a different set list and Peter, Hamish and Anna were determined that this should be filmed in a very different style. It shows Peter Gabriel as many of his fans love to see him, just playing the music.
For the Blu-ray+DVD edition "Growing Up Live" is presented in high definition for the first time on the Blu-ray disc. Also on the Blu-ray disc in standard definition are the "Unwrapped" film and its bonus features and, as an added bonus, Anna Gabriel's previously unreleased film "Growing Up On Tour - A Family Portrait" has also been included. The DVD in this set contains the "Still Growing Up Live" film and its bonus features. Find the Blu-Ray preorder, which includes the track details here.
