“We were early pioneers... of dad-dancing,” deadpans Peter Gabriel halfway through this 2013 concert movie.
The former Genesis frontman pioneered high-concept gigs and forward-thinking pop, too, as shown by the ambulant lighting rigs and colour-coded staging – shot in eye-jabbing 4K – as he segues from a monochrome ‘greatest hits’ set to a colour revisit of his fifth studio album, 1986’s So.
‘Don’t Give Up’ and ‘Sledgehammer’ have aged well – even Gabriel’s MTV mainstays flaunt heady amounts of heart and off-kilter art.
The talking-heads inserts distract but the end result is a fresh nostalgia trip and – thanks to those pioneering dad-dancing moves – a winning arena-show snapshot.
