Rocker Peter Gabriel has made good on his promise to take a year off - and has put a hold on his monthly online broadcasts to fans.

The Sledgehammer hitmaker announced plans to travel the world with his family as he prepared for a handful of North American concerts last month (Oct12) and now he has told fans he won't be updating them on his website for the next 12 months.

In his last Full Moon Update before the hiatus, the hard-working former Genesis star says, "This one will be the last for a year because I'm going to take my sabbatical year with my family, going round the world, which I'm really looking forward to."
