In October 1987 after many months on the road, it was in the elevated surroundings of the hillside open air theatre at Lycabettus overlooking Athens that the So Tour came to a climatic close. The three nights were filmed in what was the first-ever Peter Gabriel concert to be committed to film. The viewer is placed right in the heart of the action all the way, from the band’s synchronised choreography on opening number This Is The Picture right through to the skin-pricking closer Biko. In between, we’re lost in music, spellbound by the spectacle, totally absorbed by the imperfection-free tightness of a band that’s been on the road for so long.
