20 years on from their Live Aid (1985) triumph, Bob Geldof and Midge Ure recruit the world's music superstars once again to perform live and put pressure on Western governments to help Africa and Make Poverty History.
I have every Gabriel video I could lay my hands on, so "Up" certainly has some stiff competition when it comes to vying for my title of "best Gabriel concert"... but it's certainly in the running. The DTS sound is goose-bump-inducing, the stage presentation is wonderful, and Gabriel is, as always, in superb voice (as is his daughter Melanie).
I suppose I would have to say that Secret World is still my all-time fave, but that's probably only because it's a concert I actually attended, so it's pretty cool to watch the vid and reminisce about actually being there (and it's also great to see Paula Cole on backing vox).
I suppose my only tiny moan about "Up" is that Manu Katche is not on the kit. I love watching that guy play!
