So sad this tour is not coming to the States.

Lots of 80's younger people here.
In the 70's I bought my first Genesis LP at 17 and it was Selling England by the Pound.
I had just seen Genesis for the very first time (see ticket attached) in Montreal back in 1973 and was immensely impressed by them specially Peter Gabriel.
At the time I was unfamiliar with their catalog so I was wondering why Supper's Ready was not on SEBTP (yep, no internet in that primitive time) but that changed when I discovered which album had it and later bought both Foxtrot and Live!
This ticket is a true Gem for me (they were so unknown that even the name was misspelled!)
Unfortunately, the first tour I saw was Trick of the Tail in '76. At least I caught 2nd row tickets to Gabriel's first tour, with Robert Fripp on guitar. The set ended with Back in NYC. I will never forget it.
My first Genesis album was A Trick Of The Tail and I still remember that feeling of listening to it for the first time.
Me too. My younger brother kept telling me to play "Trick of the Trail." I said "It's Tail." That didn't deter him.
The first post-Gabriel tour in support of that album was also my first Genesis concert attended. They played White Mountain, and Supper's Ready, which included slideshow-style images. Bruford was amazing as accompaniment on percussion. I was hoping he would join the band permanently.
