Eagle Rock Entertainment prepares a transfusion of warm red pulsing Live Blood: Peter Gabriel 2-CD set will capture the imagination on April 24, 2012
Following last year’s stunning New Blood Live in London DVD, Blu-Ray and 3D Disc & New Blood studio album comes LIVE BLOOD, via Eagle Rock Entertainment, a newly remixed and re-mastered live 2-CD set recorded at London's iconic Hammersmith Apollo on March 23rd 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".
Gabriel is a renowned live performer whose onstage charisma and instantly recognizable voice combine brilliantly with the orchestral sound palette to breathe a new sense of wonder into familiar songs.
A distinguished singer, musician, and songwriter, Gabriel rose to fame as the lead vocalist and flautist of the progressive rock group Genesis, before embarking on a successful solo career. Recently, he has focused on producing and promoting world music as well as pioneering digital distribution methods for music. In 2007, he was honored as a BMI Icon at the 57th annual BMI London Awards for his “influence on generations of music makers.” Gabriel was also awarded the Polar Music Prize in 2009, and inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Genesis in 2010.

He also brought in noted bass guitarist Tal Wilkenfeld (Jeff Beck, Herbie Hancock) who plays on the track “Anerley Road.” Vocalist Liz Constintine is featured on the track “Rescue,” inspired by the film The Guardian.

BAD COMPANY ANNOUNCE FIRST APPEARANCES ON THE EUROPEAN CONTINENT SINCE 1975
PAUL RODGERS CHARITABLE RELEASE "WITH OUR LOVE"
RECEIVES INSTANTANEOUS WORLDWIDE SUPPORT FROM RADIO
One Hundred Percent of The Proceeds Directed To The Racehorse Sanctuary & Rocking Horse Children's Charity and Seraphim 12 Foundation
The original line-up of Bad Company has announced a short run of European festival dates for this summer. Commencing on June 9, the legendary ensemble will take the stage at the Sweden Rock Festival in Solvesborg. Additional appearances will include five German Rock The Nation Festival performances in Berlin (6/11), Stuttgart (6/12), Augsburg (6/14), Trier (6/15) and Monchengladbach / Cologne (6/16). Bad Company is Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs, and Simon Kirke. This excursion marks the first time that Bad Company has performed on the European continent together in 37 years.
The April 2010 release Bad Company Live at Wembley (DVD / Blu-Ray, Eagle Rock) has been a chart staple worldwide for the past year.
In December, Bad Company front man and main songwriter Paul Rodgers released a new studio recording titled "With Our Love." The song was shared with fans and the public on his 62nd birthday, with 100 percent of the proceeds earmarked for the charities The Racehorse Sanctuary & Rocking Horse Children's Charity and Seraphim 12 Foundation. The composition was co-written and performed with Perry Margouleff.
All of these charities are organizations Rodgers has offered significant support to in the past, in fact he is a Patron of one while Perry Margouleff is a Senior Board Member of the other. Rodgers shared, "Horses are such a powerful part of human development and have been since the early ages. We humans owe them so much. My wife Cynthia and I have visited both sanctuaries and can't imagine any of these healthy vibrant beings being sent off to slaughter. Blues great Willie Dixon believed that 'Once we know better we can do better'...so now that we know better, let's do better."
Upon arrival at radio, worldwide support has been witnessed at the rock format. The song "With Our Love," can be found on-line here: http://cdbaby.com/cd/paulrodgers and at all digital retailers.
