I was reminiscing on facebook this morning about Peter Gabriel:

I met him once. We went to see Genesis during the Trick of the Tail/Wind and the Wuthering tour at Madison Square Garden. We were standing outside and this bald guy with two huge guys in football jerseys comes up to me, shakes my hand and says hi. I didn’t know who he was. Later he was running around on stage with Phil Collins, there was a note about it in Rolling Stone and I figured out who shook my hand. I think I was only 17 or 18.

Rolling Stone should check their own archives before writing things like this: Flashback: Peter Gabriel Reunites With Genesis in 1982

The two solo shows I heard were from the Security tour. First, at the very beginning at Livingston College/Rutgers in Piscataway, NJ and then later at the much larger Mann Music Center in Philly. This was the tour that became the album Plays Live.
