Go and see Steve Hackett instead, he’ll play all the Genesis stuff you’d prefer to hear, and the tickets are less than half the price (I saw yesterday and the ticket price was about £40.). He’s coming to the Netherlands in March according to his website.

That's great! Wish they were coming to the US west coast...This seems pretty normal for a first gig of a tour, working out all the bugs. I suspect the following shows will be better regarding his voice, I'm not surprised about Nic, turning out to be an accomplished drummer.
They WILL NOT play a heavy 70's setlist from NC, Foxtrot, SEBtP and ATOtT, that is not what made them gazillionaires. The majority of the fanbase does not even know any of those albums.

Meanwhile, we were at the second of Steve Hackett's three night residency at the London Palladium, which was awesome. Short first half with Amanda Lehman as additional guitarist (and vocalist on 'Shadow of the Hierophant). Long second half consisted of the entire 'Seconds Out' album with an encore of 'Dance on a Volcano'.

Spectacular musicianship all round (with Jonas Reingold on bass)

Just like I expected, the set list is booring and predictable. It overlaps considerably with previous ones and holds no real surprises. Lots of stuff from the 80's and 90's albums, and only a few from the 70's albums.

The idea that someone here on the forum had to play one song from each album would have been a lot more interesting.

Thanks for the review, richardh.  I was very against the idea but once the reviews came in, I wished I had gone after all (I live quite near to Birmingham as well).  I saw them in 77, 78 and 87 and I suppose I was put off by the fact that Phil could not play drums any more.

That is so nice to hear, Richard! Been a while since we ran into each other here on the forms. So glad you to experience Genesis live.
I’ve got that “the last Domino’” cd on preorder. Should be getting it in November. Cheers man.
If I get a break it is Prog Time.

This is painful. I wish Phil all the best, he was a phenomenal drummer in his time, and a decent singer. His backing vox complimented Pet's really well.

But this?

I'm not even sure he's going to be able last the night. His voice is shot - never mind pandemic related uncertainty.

This is hard to watch

They recently released a "rehearsal teaser" on YouTube. I think the stage looks cool.

Had this e-mail:

Genesis' concert originally due to take place in December 2020 and then rescheduled to April 2021 has been further rescheduled.

The rescheduled dates are Monday 20 - Wednesday 22 September 2021.

The event organisers have been in touch to say that:

"Due to this unprecedented and changing situation, it was not possible to go ahead with the show on Monday 5 - Wednesday 7 April 2021. Therefore Genesis' performance at Utilita Arena Birmingham on Monday 5 - Wednesday 7 April 2021 will be rescheduled to Monday 20 - Wednesday 22 September 2021. We’re pleased to have been able to reschedule so do hang on to your ticket – it will be valid for the new date."

no great surprise obviously

I wouldn't see them in the mid-to-late 80s 'cause they were long past their proggy prime - I wasn't going to stand in a sea of 35,000 waiting for the "long medley" then, so I certainly won't do it now.....but I did check the tour dates and prices, just for the halibut.  


I like to feel the suspense when you're certain you know I am there.....

The prospect of a reunion let alone the trio going out again doesnt create a spark. They should leave well enough alone . Unless the trio are getting offered an unGodly amount of $ to do it - which may very well be the case.
That said as far as SH and PG showing up well they dont just show up and say "Hey lets play a song or two  you guys for the old days huh ? '  These are agreed to in tour advance planning . There are a load of legal /contractual issues to hammer out and then available dates if any. So while the audience may think its a surprise guest just for that show it is well planned in advance and thats if the two even want to and agree to any terms.
The experience of listening to old guys with back up musicians slog thru their catalog with a very fatigued Collins trying to sing like he did 30 even 20 years ago will not be pretty.

Stick with Steve Hackett's tours and you wont go wrong. There is still magic to be had on any given night with them.



Oh I have my doubts as well if they can pull this off. Phil, the poor guy, can barely walk these days.

Hi,

After reading and seeing a few comments (that one from the guy in the studio specially!!!!) ... I'm almost inclined to think that PG would not be there, and that it is likely that he has lost his ability to sing a lot of things and he does not know how to adjust ... heck FZ's voice changed a full octave just about ... and he got more famous!

Ohhh heck ... we can't have the lawnmower song be RAPP'd can we? That would be fun, and throw the audience a curve ball and then some!

BTW, I think that SH is probably booked for the next several years and his joining a GENESIS this or that would be a problem, and not enough rehearsal time to get it right and proper ... (just a thought!)

I must admit to being tempted but the ticket prices were horrendous... I was lucky enough to see them in 77, 78 and 87 so maybe better to hold those memories.  Phil Collins seems to be the main concern; we won't be able to witness one of the greatest drummers again and his health seems frail.  However, the band have dismissed the possibility of teaming up with Gabriel and Hackett (why would he anyway?)  Had they approached Ray Wilson they might have also righted a wrong...

The set list they did on their last tour was not very different from the one they did in the early 90's. If they tour again this year and playing more or less the same songs once again, it is going to be dull. However, if they change things up a bit and include some surprises it might be interesting enough.

They might do their Medley. That’s about as Prog as they get since the 80’s. Having said, I love The Way We Walk Volume 2 - The Longs.
I may get the DVD,
And then, it may get called off altogether due to one of them falling. Oh, falling ill, (or heaven forbid, something worse.....)
