I wonder what thinking goes on when they’re planning the order?
Mike : - Well guys, what do we choose as an opener ? I don't want anything too complicated, no weird guitar tuning. We should play it safe...
Tony : - Behind The Lines is great, I wrote that part, and Duke is my favourite album.
Mike : - You're right. Plus we did it last time, it worked well.
Phil : - Ok guys.
I'm sure it happened like this.
But they're right, it works very well objectively.
When Phil came out of retirement in 2016, I imagined Genesis being reunited with Nic and Ray, with Phil on backing vocals and hand percussion (because of Phil's voice lowering and Peter not wanting anything to do with Genesis). I thought about Wot Gorilla as an opener...
