Limited edition of 100 and 25
Plays Live is one of a collection of limited edition archival inkjet prints published to celebrate a catalogue of truly remarkable and unique soundworks by Peter Gabriel. Armando Gallo captured this shot of the fully made-up Gabriel which was later cropped by Peter to good effect for the album cover. The photo was taken in December 1982 at the Universal Amphitheatre, the Los Angeles leg of Peter's Security tour, as Armando Gallo recalled "During the performance of Lay Your Hands On Me, Peter would look into the crowd in a very intense way before throwing himself onto the raised hands of the audience. That was also a rare moment to get the blue of his eyes on camera. And I got it! I was knocked out when I saw the final result on Plays Live." Plays Live comprises two editions: a smaller print (the edition of 100) and a larger print (the edition of 25). Every print in this collection has been signed by Peter Gabriel himself.
