    Live Blood is Peter Gabriel's lifesblood.

    Following last year's stunning New Blood: Live in London (DVD) DVD, Blu-ray and 3D Disc and New Blood studio album is Live Blood via Eagle Rock Entertainment. It's a newly remixed and re-mastered live 2-CD set recorded at London's iconic Hammersmith Apollo on March 23 last year.

    Dispensing with the usual rock armory of guitars and drums, Peter Gabriel and the 46-piece New Blood Orchestra re-imagine some of Peter's best known songs with breathtaking orchestral arrangements that include "In Your Eyes," "Red Rain," "Rhythm of the Heat," and "Biko," written in honor of anti-apartheid activist Stephen Biko (1946-1977). In addition, there are interpretations of Paul Simon's "The Boy in the Bubble" and Lou Reed's "The Power of the Heart." Track Listing:
