In October 1987 after many months on the road, it was in the elevated surroundings of the hillside open-air theatre at Lycabettus overlooking Athens, that the So tour came to a climactic close. The three nights were filmed in what was the first-ever Peter Gabriel concert to be committed to film. As a concert film, it was brilliantly shot and has now been equally brilliantly remastered, a crystal-clear record of Gabriel and band in their mid-80s pomp. The viewer is placed right in the heart of the action all the way, from the band s synchronised choreography on opening number This Is The Picture , right through to the skin-pricking closer Biko . In between, we re lost in music, spellbound by the spectacle, totally absorbed by the imperfection-free tightness of a band that s been on the road for so long.

Additionally it is great to see the entire concert which includes 'Intruder', 'The Family And The Fishing Net' and 'Here Comes The Flood'.
Some people complain about reissues and re-releases however when the quality is improved to such a standard it really is worth seeing. Pictures will be improved vastly again very shortly and we'll all be buying 4k TV's so I really don't see the problem with such releases. Anything that makes Peter Gabriel's thirtysomething face clearer to me is very welcome. I'm extremely happy with this release in this point in time, it is superior to other blu rays I have with more recent footage. Progression in technology should always be appreciated, I just wish that other releases of that period could be reissued to this standard, sadly however many companies claim they don't find this cost effective.
You also receive Play The Videos DVD with this release which is a great bonus. Other bonuses include Youssou N'Dour and Le Super Etoile De Dakar support set, a 1986 interview with Peter and the 'Sledgehammer' video with 5.1 audio.
The Blu Ray is region A,B and C and the DVD is region free 0.
Youssou N'dour has an infectious voice and style that transcends language. You don't need to know the lyrics to appreciate his passion. Peter was inspired when he chose this talented man to work with.
Don't overlook the extra material on the concert DVD. I wanted this Athens concert to keep going... I wanted more. Getting all the Peter Gabriel videos is a massive bonus.
If you like Peter's work, get this. If you love true creative musical genius, get this. Enjoy the Peter Gabriel experience time and time again.
Considering this gig is from 1987 the sound and picture are awesome. I've got the blu ray disc by the way. The menus are easy to navigate, the Senegalese warm-up band is astonishing but, let's face it, we want to hear Gabriel. He has his band: Manu Katche, Tony Levin and guitarist Rhodes, who are fun, choreographed (!) and so so accomplished. We get all the key songs from the albums up to that time, including Solisbury Hill, Sledgehammer, a tender Don't give up and San Jacinto. Biko at the end makes you weep.
But frankly, the performance of 'In your eyes', where he gets the Senegalese back on stage, is worth the purchase alone, for sheer vibrancy, joy and crowd ecstasy !!
