Secret World Live, Peter Gabriel‘s concert film from 1994, is to be re-released on 2 July on DVD and Blu-ray.
Extensive work has been carried out to create the best possible quality – the original 16mm film negatives were repaired / cleaned and scanned (at cinema-spec super 2K) for mastering and restoration. Once scanned, the footage was digitally restored and graded to allow fans to view the concert as never been seen before.
The Secret World Live tour supported the release of Gabriel’s 1992’s Us album and featured elaborate presentation and choreography, with two stages joined by a narrow moving walkway. The line-up for this show featured Peter Gabriel (vocals, keyboards); Manu Katche (drums); Tony Levin (bass, vocals); David Rhodes (guitar, vocals); Jean Claude Naimro (keyboards, vocals); Paula Cole (vocals); Shankar (violin, vocals); Levon Minassian (doudouk) with guests Papa Wemba and Molokai.
Bonus Features will include Red Rain (not featured in the original film), a time-lapse film of the complex stage set up, plus a featurette on the making of the Secret World Live film including interviews and behind the scenes footage. Additionally, there’s a newly restored photo-montage slideshow to the remixed “Quiet” version of Steam.
