"Don't Give Up" by Peter and Kate

On his 1986 release "So," Peter Gabriel sang a delicate, touching ballad with Kate Bush called "Don't Give Up." Kate just finished her triumphant 22-night run at the Hammersmith Odeon in London (read my review of the show here) and Gabriel just announced a European and UK leg of his tour in which he is performing "So" in its entirety. I wonder if Kate will join him for this beautiful, trembling song about compassion and love... the sun enters and leaves a full eclipse during the performance in the video, but they never break their consuming embrace. The staging for this piece and the performances by Peter and Kate are emotive, intimate, and poignant. So beautiful, it almost hurts.
