The Genesis Show

  • ...and that show is coming up this Saturday! 8)


    Apparently, they are doing selections from "Three Sides Live" as an encore, after doing "Seconds Out" in its entirety - if I remember correctly, it will be selections from the 4th live side as released outside of North America (so, my song, The Fountain Of Salmacis, and It/Watcher of the Skies will probably make an appearance as well).


    Show report later...

    ...and the show was fantastic yet again! 8)


    They played "Seconds Out" in its entirety in order, then "Dodo/Lurker", "Follow You, Follow Me", "Misunderstanding", “Turn It On Again”, and "It/Watcher of The Skies" - and a surprise final encore of “The Knife”! A GREAT show!

    They are not to be missed if they are playing near you.

  • The Genesis Show is playing their next show in Collingswood, NJ at the Scottish Rite Auditorium on Saturday, April 27th.


    The big surprise is that they are playing the Abacab Tour setlist this time! They have been playing the W&W/Seconds Out setlist since their inception, but now they are progressively going to work through all of the tours from ATOTT to MAMA as the months/years go forward.


    This should be a lot of fun! 😎 Tickets just went on sale yesterday.

    It was a tremendous show! I got to hear Genesis songs live that I have never heard played live before. (Of course, hearing them by Genesis themselves would be the greatest treat, but this show was a very enjoyable next-best-thing.)



    The setlist (not in order played):



    Firth Of Fifth (w/ Stuermer-esque playing of the solo instead of with Steve's original blueprint - this was done not to annoy people, but instead to be true to the era they were replicating; he normally plays it in the Hackett style)


    I Know What I Like


    The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway


    Carpet Crawlers


    In The Cage/Cinema Show/Slippermen/Afterglow


    Dance On A Volcano/drum duet/Los Endos


    Follow You, Follow Me


    Behind The Lines/Duchess


    Misunderstanding


    Turn It On Again


    Abacab


    No Reply At All


    Me And Sarah Jane


    Dodo/Lurker


    Who Dunnit? (yes, really :D)


    Man On The Corner



    A VERY enjoyable show! I'm glad that I have another opportunity to catch it in June. 8)

  • ...and the aforementioned show in June is tomorrow! It should be the same or very similar setlist. I'm looking forward to hearing it again! 8)

  • These guys are awesome. I've seen them four times, and they've never disappointed. Great musicians and great energy on stage. They seem like a bunch of regular guys who just love the hell out of Genesis and consider it an honor (as the lead singer always points out) to perform this music they grew up loving for an audience. They will be performing a series of shows this fall in the New York--New Jersey--Philadelphia area, alternating between the Abacab and Encore tours from one concert to the next. I'm especially looking forward to seeing them perform the Encore tour, which of course was the last tour in which Genesis performed Supper's Ready in its entirety. The Abacab shows will be at the Landis Theater in Vineland, NJ (Oct. 12, 2019) and the Riviera Theater in North Tonawanda, NY (Nov. 23, 2019). The Encore shores are the Scottish Rite Auditorium in Collingswood, NJ (Nov. 16, 2019) and the Kewsick Theater in Glenside, PA (Dec. 28, 2019). Check 'em out--you'll love 'em live!
