The one-hour-and-40-minute film features highlights from an October 2013 performance from Gabriel's Back to Front tour, which celebrated the 25th anniversary of the acclaimed musician's classic album So.  The ex-Genesis frontman was accompanied by a band that features some musicians who helped him record the 1986 collection, which includes such classic songs as "Sledgehammer," "Big Time," "Red Rain" and "In Your Eyes."  Gabriel also performed a number of other well-known tunes from throughout his career at the event, including "Solsbury Hill," "Shock the Monkey" and "Digging in the Dirt."

Peter Gabriel: Back to Front also features interviews with a number of the singer's musical friends and associates.  The film was directed by Hamish Hamilton, whose credits include concert films by such stars as The Rolling Stones, U2, Madonna and Neil Diamond.

Tickets for the screenings can be purchased at participating theater box offices and at FathomEvents.com.

Gabriel's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame takes place April 10 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
