First up: Gabriel will take his New Blood Orchestra on the road with him for a 12-date 'New Blood Tour' of North America this summer. The jaunt kicks off on June 10 at the Greek in Berkeley, Calif. and wraps on June 29 at the Marcus Amphitheatre in Milwaukee.
Following the run, Gabriel plans to release an album with the New Blood Orchestra, conducted by Ben Foster, featuring his catalog cuts remixed symphonically.

That album celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. They grow up so fast, don't they?
