2023’s going to be a busy year for Peter Gabriel.

On Tuesday, the legendary English musician/songwriter/icon announced plans for a i/o The Tour, a run of shows in the U.K. and Europe built around the forthcoming release of i/o, his tenth studio album and, once released, the first since 2011’s New Blood. His last album of new, original material was 2002’s Up, so it’s been a while.

The 2023 tour run will include Gabriel’s first live performances outside of North America since 2014, when he embarked on the Back to Front tour celebrating his classic album So.

“It’s been a while and I am now surrounded by a whole lot of new songs and am excited to be taking them out on the road for a spin,” said Gabriel in a statement about the news. “Look forward to seeing you out there.”

More details, via the official announcement:

i/o The Tour will see Peter playing new material from his forthcoming album i/o, as well as delving into his extensive catalogue of music, with hits, fan favourites and the unexpected. For the shows, Gabriel will be joined by regular band-mates Tony Levin, David Rhodes and Manu Katché. Full details on the i/o album will follow.
