OVO is the soundtrack to the Millennium Dome Show in London that was composed by British progressive rock musician Peter Gabriel. It was his eleventh album overall. It was released on 12 June 2000 and features guest vocals by Neneh Cherry, Rasco, Richie Havens, Elizabeth Fraser and Paul Buchanan (of The Blue Nile). Two versions of the album were released, a limited edition version, which was sold at the Millennium Dome and at petergabriel.com, and a standard version which was sold in stores. The limited edition version which was discontinued after 2000, includes a comic book telling the OVO story and a bonus disc with the track, "The Story of OVO".

Gabriel performed "Father, Son", "The Tower That Ate People", "White Ashes", and "Downside Up" over the course of the Growing Up and Still Growing Up tours. Melanie Gabriel provided backing vocals for "Downside Up". These performances are available on the Growing Up Live and Still Growing Up: Live & Unwrapped DVDs. "Downside-Up" and "The Nest That Sailed The Sky" were performed as part of The New Blood Tour in 2010 and 2011, the former as a duet between Peter and Melanie Gabriel and the latter as the closing, orchestra-only track of the show. "Father, Son" was also performed. These performances are available on the New Blood Live In London DVD.
