CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- March 27, 2014

On Wednesday, April 23 at 7:30 p.m. local time, Fathom Events, More2Screen,
Eagle Rock Entertainment and Real World will take U.S. moviegoers on a VIP
experience for an exclusive concert event, “Peter Gabriel: Back to Front.”
Pre-recorded in October 2013 at London’s O2, the show celebrates one of the
most pioneering and innovative artists of modern times, who will be honored
with an induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this April. Directed by
BAFTA winning director Hamish Hamilton, “Peter Gabriel: Back to Front”
reunites Gabriel’s original touring band from 1986 to mark the 25th
anniversary of the landmark album “So.” The concert includes hits like,
“Solsbury Hill,” “Digging in the Dirt,” “Sledgehammer,” “Mercy Street” and
“Don’t Give Up.” Gabriel continues to be at the vanguard of the audio-visual
experience by using the latest technology and a 5.1 surround sound mix to
deliver a one-of-a-kind cinema event.

Tickets for “Peter Gabriel: Back to Front” are available at participating
theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com. The event will be
presented in more than 400 select movie theaters around the country through
Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network. For a complete list of theater locations
and prices, visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are
subject to change).

“It has been wonderful working with Hamish Hamilton again and his very
talented team. I feel they have really caught what was unique about the Back
to Front tour, both visually and emotionally. My own sound crew has also done
a brilliant job,” said Peter Gabriel.

“Back to Front” offers a visual and narrative feast that brings the viewer to
the heart of the concert experience. The show opens with a stark insight into
the song-writing process with Peter Gabriel, house lights on, trying to find
the lyrical companions to a beautiful piano melody. Who else would start a
concert with a song they’ve not yet finished? The creative journey is explored
throughout the film and culminates with a celebratory run through of the album
“So,” what Gabriel calls his ‘pop star moment.’ Previously unreleased and
re-imagined songs sit effortlessly beside classic hits to reflect Gabriel’s
status as a multi-dimensional artist.

“Peter Gabriel’s performance in ‘Back to Front’ will transport fans to
London’s iconic O2,” said Dan Diamond, senior vice president of Fathom Events.
“Being able to experience this remarkable artist and history of hits on the
big screen will be an exciting opportunity for old and new fans alike.”
