Peter Gabriel’s only European show this year will be a headline slot at the Womad Festival.
The former Genesis frontman will headline the Saturday night (25 July) of the Wiltshire festival. All proceeds from the festival will go to the human rights charity Witness, of which Gabriel is a long term supporter.
"This will be my only show in Europe this year, and I am delighted it will be for Witness.org. I had no plans to play in the UK but when Festival Director, Chris Smith, heard I was looking for a suitable event, he generously offered the Saturday at WOMAD. We are trying to raise £100,000 for Witness," he told Womad’s official website.
