Peter Gabriel Heralds Arrival Of Rock

Peter Gabriel is to rock Cornwall's Eden Project this month, with a specially created concert on June 20, to unveil a giant oval stone sculpture.

The 70-ton stone sculpture, called Seed, has been created by artist Peter Randall-Page and is thought to be one of the largest made from a single piece of stone.

Gabriel, through his collective WOMAD has been a longtime supporter of the Eden Project, who stage shows there each year as part of the Eden Sessions, to raise money for the Eden Trust charity.

Gabriel is also planning on creatively contributing to the designs of Eden's forthcoming development, The Edge.

Gabriel previously performed on the Eden's stage as part of Live 8 two years ago - but this concert will be founder of Genesis' first full concert there.

Tickets for the concert are now on sale now priced at £35.
