For possible interest of forum members in the US Mid-Atlantic region: The Rock Orchestra (TRO) is staging two live performances of the Duke and Abacab albums this coming May:
- Saturday, May 7th at The Baby Grand in Wilmington, Delaware
- Friday, May 27th at The Milton Theater in Milton, Delaware
This lineup is the same group of musicians who performed The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway in 2019, which you can watch in its entirety on YouTube: https://youtu.be/E5nZheA_Rfo
I'm reprising my role as Tony Banks for these shows, and am super psyched to get to play all the songs from two of my favorite Genesis albums!
I should mention that TRO is not a full-time Genesis tribute; we're more like a collective of musicians in the Delaware area who tackle 3 new tribute projects each year. The founding members plan each season and recruit different lineups of local musicians for each project. The musicians for this show are all huge Genesis fans & are looking forward to performing this amazing music!
Well, a short review now before bed (it’s late).
This is definitely a show worth catching! I’m very glad I went. I heard excellent live versions of songs I had never heard live before.
I wondered in the “Your Next Gig” thread if “Tony” would have the snorkel mask on during “Who Dunnit?” Well, you/he did! 🤿 You even had a regulation Tony Banks early-80s striped rugby shirt on - that’s true attention to detail! 👍 (I loved those shirts back then, and it always made me happy that he wore them too.)
More later after some rest. In short, great job last night and good luck with the Milton show! 🍀
