THE MUSICAL BOX - A Genesis Extravaganza 1970-77 - Tour 2018 and beyond

  • Canadian band The Musical Box will go on tour this fall in Europe with a brand new show:


    A Genesis Extravaganza 1970-1977


    presenting tracks from the albums Trespass, Nursery Cryme, Foxtrot, Selling England, The Lamb, A Trick Of The Tail and Wind & Wuthering.

  • I saw them in 2004, when they did SEBTP. It was simply mind blowing.

    First we learned to walk on water.

    Then we tried something harder.

  • I'm really looking forward to this tour. I have seen them do every one of their tours (Nursery Cryme/Foxtrot, SEBTP (both black show and regular), The Lamb, and even the one tour where they did A Trick Of The Tail). This is the first time they are mixing everything up - I bet they will do songs other than "The Knife" from Trespass (but will probably do "The Knife" too), and they have never done songs from Wind & Wuthering before.


    This is one to see for sure! :thumbup:

  • I have tickets for this show! Very informative article. :thumbup:


    Anyone got any guesses on what tracks are the 1970-1977 "rare stuff and seldomly played songs"? All album tracks? Or are B-sides a possibility?

  • Ah - thank you for this!


    From the Canadian dates, that means they will be back around where I live Feb./Mar. 2019! 8)

    Stepping out the back way, hoping nobody sees...

  • I for one would love to see/hear them play these rarities:

    Looking For Someone

    Harold The Barrel

    Can-Utility And The Coastliners

    Eleventh Earl Of Mar

    "Can-Utility" was playing in the background when you watch the promotional video on their website advertising this tour, as was "Unquiet Slumbers For The Sleepers" - I don't think those two would have been playing if they weren't planning on playing them.


    They will do a good job with the setlist - they always do. 8)

  • I'm really excited by this too. I love their full-blown tribute shows (and I'd LOVE to see them play the whole Lamb again) but after seeing three Selling England tours in a row I wouldn't seek out a fourth.


    I can't wait to see what they come up with.

  • Please tell me this is coming to the USA as well. Looks like I became a Genesis super-fan in the nick of time...

    Oh yes - they'll definitely come back. I saw the Canadian dates were Jan./early Feb. next year - that means they'll be in the US late Feb./March-time, maybe even into April.


    You'll finally see them - you may have to drive up north to see them, at least to DC, but, if you want to see them, they'll be here.

  • I will definitely drive to see this show. It's lock the mother of all shows! Have you been to their webpage? That "trailer" is goosebump good! Maaann, I cannot believe that Genesis themselves wont' get together and play this music. Even Gabriel has to see how amazing it is and how important it is!

  • BTW, if Musical Box does play the east coast, i'd love to get together and meet some Genesis fans. I'll be going by myself as i'm the only one in the family that likes the old stuff. My spouse likes all the newer stuff but is like me 5 years ago and doesn't know that the best stuff is the 70's stuff.

    I believe they’re the only tribute to get the original band’s endorsement. PG even took his kids along to see their concert to show them ‘what daddy used to do’ whilst PC has said they play the songs better than they ever did. They’re in London in October if anyone’s interested.
