Rocker Peter Gabriel is planning a hiatus when his upcoming Back to Front tour ends so he can travel the world with his family.
The Sledgehammer singer's latest trek begins in Canada on Sunday (16Sep12), and it may be fans' last chance to see him for a while.
Gabriel tells Billboard.com he's making plans for a major sabbatical so he can indulge his two great loves away from music - travelling and his family.
He says, "(We'll be) visiting some of the people we know on the music world, the human rights world, the science community, as well as a bit of straightforward tourism. It's something I've been intending to do for the last 12 years, so I'm really looking forward to that."
