20, 21, 22 September | Genesis live in BIRMINGHAM | reports **SPOILERS**

  • A few questions;


    -was Duchess the full version?

    -Was Tonight Tonight Tonight the shortened version that bridges into Invisible Touch?

    -How much of Moonlit Knight was played?

  • nope. Both were played in North America and so

    In London

    You cant say a definitive "Nope" Christian. I saw them 5 times on that tour and on no occasion did they play both those songs on the same night and that includes twice at Earls Court. It might be that they did play both and dropped something else on occasions during the European tour and I have no idea what they did in North America.

    There are a number of videos doing the rounds for most songs.


    I think doing I can't Dance probably wasn't ideal for this tour, seeing Phil trying to do the crotch swing sitting in a chair.

    just checked it, you are right about the UK theatre tour - I didn't have that one in mind


    During the US open air tour. they played both until DWYS was dropped halfway through

  • They would switch Mama and Dreaming While you Sleep often. I think only on certain nights did they do both.

    I thought they only did Mama at the beginning of the tour and then dropped it because it was too difficult vocally for Phil.

  • You beat me to the punch by about 30 seconds. I was just getting ready to post this clip. The audience seems kind of subdued to me. Phil’s voice isn’t great with DWTMK, but on Carpet Crawlers he sounds much better to me.

    Full version of Duchess...and quite a powerful arrangement.

    Tonight unfortunately was the abridged version.

    Moonlit Knight was just the intro...until the vocal "...selling England by the pound..." then segues into Carpet Crawlers.


    By the way, the Lamb (or "New-born Lamb" as I've dubbed it) will split opinion, but personally think it was a good, 'warming' arrangement.


    And, Nic was awesome on the drums.


    Phil's voice much better than I expected having seen the documentary....yes, he struggles with some notes (and some lyrics) but he sang well...and grew more alive as the show went on.

  • Thanks for posting the setlist and for the videos. I'm not terribly surprised by the setlist (it's pretty much 2007 give or take) which is probably the most disappointing part. I was hoping that they'd slip in one true surprise but alas, no. The intro to DOWTMK was pitiful; I'm sorry. Yes, I'm going to see them (in NA) and yes, I will enjoy it and feel more than a twang of nostalgia but man, oh man, age is not for the faint of heart (and I'm speaking to myself as much as anything else)..... Take care.

    That bad note on "It lies with me" cried the Queen of Maybe" was admittedly pretty painful. First show in a long time, and he hasn't sang that in decades. I'll give him a break.
