Eight Gigs: Peter Gabriel
Fri., July 15, 7 p.m., Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harvey’s, $89.50-$255
Peter Gabriel and Genesis both headed in a more pop direction after splitting in 1975, and Gabriel has experimented widely in the years since, even issuing an orchestral cover album of songs from Radiohead, Arcade Fire and David Bowie in 2010 followed by an orchestral album of his own material. The trailer for the Rock Paper Scissors tour, however, acknowledges that “people want to hear hits,” so expect plenty of them, because the other headliner on the tour? That Sting guy from the Police. This legendary lineup is not to be missed by classic rock fans. Highway 50 Stateline Avenue in Lake Tahoe, http://petergabriel.com.
