The Peter Gabriel concert film, Secret World Live, is not new to Gabriel fans.  However, they will be thrilled to learn that the Grammy Award winning film has been fully restored remastered and is now being made available in DVD and Blu-ray.

Filmed in Modena, Italy during a two night stop in November 1993 during the Secret World Live tour in support of the “Us” album, the show is elaborately presented and choreographed in ways that you can only expect from a Peter Gabriel production.

Backing Gabriel on the film is David Rhodes on guitar, Tony Levin on bass,  Jean Claude Naimro on keyboards and vocals, Manu Katche on drums, the lovely Paula Cole assisting on vocals, Shankar on violin and vocals), Levon Minassian on the doudouk and guests Papa Wemba and Molokai.  Together, they punch out some of Gabriel’s best work up to that point, including Boomerocity favorites Steam, Sledgehammer and Secret World, as well as Don’t Give Up, In Your Eyes, Digging In The Dirt, and Shaking The Tree, along with nine other great tunes..

There’s also a ton of bonus features that are included. Red Rain was not included in the original film and is now included as an extra for the first time. The DVD/Blu-ray also offers time-lapse film of the incredible stage construction. And, if that isn’t enough for you, there’s also a featurette on the making of the Secret World Live film that includes interviews and behind the scenes footage.

The remastered Secret World Live DVD/Blu-ray is a must have disc for Peter Gabriel fans the world over. When ordering your copy, be sure to order an extra for the Gabriel fan on your gift giving list.
