Run Like hell - Pink Floyd
Merci pour le partage de tes belles photos Véronique, salut
I have mixed feelings about today and tomorrow nights; these two last American dates in Boston may be not only be the last time Genesis perform in North America but could be the very LAST.
The Omicron variant is causing to make changes on travelling rules Internationally and many cities are going back to lockdown like in the UK. It all seems to volatile and uncertain, I wish the band and fans going to these shows to enjoy what can be a historic moment in Genesis history.
Perry Mason - Ozzy
John Petrucci - Terminal Velocity
Note that pre-sales have started for the Camel 50th anniversary tour 2023!
More than 18 months away though.
www.camelproductions.com for more info
I have never in my life bought a concert ticket 18, yes 18 months in advance!
This can tell you how bad Camel needs the money from advance ticket sales, sad.
I thought I would do a tally of the songs from the setlist to see how the Genesis catalogue was represented:
FGTR - 0 songs
Trespass- 1 song: Stagnation (snippet in IKWIL jam section)
Nursery Cryme - 0 songs
Foxtrot - 0 songs
SEBTP - 4 songs: DWTMK (snippet), IKWIL, Firth of Fifth (instrumental only), The Cinema Show (part of instrumental)
TLDDOB - 3 songs: TLDDOB (first two verses), The Carpet Crawlers (minus intro), Riding the Scree (snippet in The Cinema Show)
ATOTT - 0 songs
W&W - 2 songs: Eleventh Earl of Mar/In That Quiet Earth (snippet linking The Cinema Show to Afterglow), Afterglow
ATTWT - 1 song: Follow You, Follow Me
Duke - 5 songs: Behind the Lines (portion of intro), Duchess, Misunderstanding (once), Turn It On Again, Duke's End
Abacab - 0 songs
Genesis - 4 songs: Mama, That's All, Home By the Sea, 2nd Home By the Sea
IT - 5 songs: Invisible Touch, Tonight, Tonight, Tonight (short version), Land of Confusion, Domino, Throwing It All Away
WCD - 3 songs: No Son of Mine, I Can't Dance, Fading Lights (2 verses)
CAS - 0 songs
The surprise for me was the realization that there was nothing from ATOTT. I wonder if this is perhaps the only tour (with Phil) where this happened. The 2007 tour had both Ripples and Los Endos. The WCD tour had a couple of verses of Dance On a Volcano. Every tour before that had at least Los Endos I think.
Why bother with such a long breakdown? All you need to do is go to setlist.fm pick your concert date and scroll down to "Songs on Albums" to see the graphic and songs from each album:
Invisible Touch was the highest with 5 (not my most liked album unfortunately) followed by Genesis Mama and Selling England with 4 each.
It sure must have been hard for Michael Nesmith to hear from a manager or promoter when he was asking to get their band name to be legalized for authorship and brand copyrights who said to him: " yeah, I see your desire but you are NOT REAL" meaning the Monkees were a TV show but not a rock act. I'm glad he got the recognition he deserved later in his career. RIP
I can now add two more to my "final" Genesis concert list that started (1973) and ended in Montreal:
Montreal Bell center - November 22 -23, 2021 Last Domino Tour 2021.
Total shows= 12
Lovely Rita - the Beatles
Very sorry for this loss at such an early age, too young to go.
And I did not know that a vocal version of Spectral Mornings existed! Thanks for sharing.
In Montreal, it took me a good 15 minutes to get in. I was in line at 7:15 and in the Bell Center around 7:30. I'm curious to see how it will turn out for the folks in Toronto.
I was at the Monday show, as I mentioned on that thread, I got the vax pre-screen wrist band and skipped the line. Took me maybe 8 minutes to enter.
They prefer to scan the ticket bar code from the Ticketmaster phone app and that worked fine.
I was at the Monday show (Nov. 22) and can say it was excellent. There was a vaccine pre-screening to get a wristband and skip the line. No metal detectors at my gate, I had a full hour to buy merch and have a beer.
After the "Dead already" intro and only a 15 minute delay, show started with an amazing Behind the Lines and Duke's end suite, loved it. Like the Gazette review says, Mike and Tony were as sharp as ever, so was Daryl. They got standing ovations from the sold out audience that by no means was quiet.
Phil is another story and a sad one but did quite ok for his condition. The sitting tambourine routine part during I know what I like was specially sad remembering how dynamic his dancing antics were in the 70s & 80s.
My favorites were Second Home by the Sea and Firth of Fifth, and yes, Domino was a let down instrumentally but visually was stunning. I am not much of a an 80's hits fan so I could have breezed thru those songs but it was a great "night to remember". Sadly, no "In the Cage" this last time around
Farewell my Genesis after 12 times seeing them live in Montreal (8), New York, Passaic NJ, Houston, Denver).
According to the Gouvernement du Québec website:
Individuals who do not live in Québec and are travelling in Québec may enter places and participate in activities requiring a vaccine passport if they present the following two documents at the door:
• Valid photo ID with an address outside Québec
• A vaccine passport with a QR code or official proof of vaccination against COVID-19 issued by their country or province in Canada
Even though you shouldn't have any problems based on the above, it may not be a bad idea to check with the venue.
Thanks - but I see you are also arriving from outside of Quebec, did you already call the venue?
Was watching concert clips on YouTube when Graeme came up front to sing "Higher and Higher" and poem reading, he was always energetic and will be dearly missed.
RIP Graeme, your poetic spirit will always be higher
I’m wondering how long it will take to enter the venue since they will have to check everyone’s vaccination passport? Did any of you in Europe have a problem or long wait entering the venue?
My 2 doses were applied in Nova Scotia, how do I obtain a Quebec covid passport or am I good to enter the venue by only showing my vaccine record? My record has a QR code.
