AllMusic Review by Christian Genzel

On his previous two studio albums, Peter Gabriel covered songs by other artists and by himself with new orchestral arrangements. New Blood: Live in London is a live recording where Gabriel presents 22 of these songs with a 46-piece orchestra called the New Blood Orchestra. Recorded in March 2011 at the Hammersmith Apollo in London, the set list includes covers of Paul Simon's "The Boy in the Bubble" and Regina Spektor's "Apr├Ęs Moi" as well as Gabriel's own "Mercy Street" and "Solsbury Hill." The concert is available on DVD and as a deluxe edition containing the show on Blu-ray, DVD, and CD plus the album New Blood as a bonus.
