Peter Gabriel rides a bike on stage

I’ve spent the day decluttering my flat while watching music DVDs — I know, what an exciting life I lead!

Anyway, one of the DVDs I watched was Peter Gabriel’s Growing Up Live. I actually saw this tour at Wembley — twice, once when it kicked off in 2002 and then again, on the closing leg, in 2003.

I’d completely forgotten that he rides a bike on stage while performing Solsbury Hill. I hunted it out on You Tube so you can see it too.

And you thought cycling through traffic was rough — ever done it on a stage full of musicians? He’s a nutter, right?
