LOS ANGELES, March 29 (UPI) -- British rocker Peter Gabriel has announced plans for a 12-city North American concert tour with his New Blood Orchestra.

The first stop on the tour is in Berkeley, Calif., June 10.

The musician will perform classics from his catalog, including hits from his multi-platinum album "So," which turns 25 this year.

"The songs will be arranged by long-time Gabriel collaborator John Metcalf and the New Blood Orchestra will be conducted by Ben Foster," Live Nation said in a news release Monday. "The shows precede the highly anticipated album from Peter Gabriel with the New Blood Orchestra later this year, also featuring these classic hits in reinterpreted orchestral arrangements."

Tickets for The New Blood Tour are to go on sale April 4 at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.

The shows follow successful 2010 concerts at Radio City Music Hall in New York and the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Live Nation said.
