Alien Afternoon (midway to the end) gives me those 70’s chills.
Along the way
The Next Best Thing
It’s Easier That Way
It's in my top 5 Genesis albums. Very personal to me on several levels and I love every song.
I took the wife and kids to see Peter in Palm Desert in October….WOW! The kids were blown away, very impressed, super excited when they left….
We all just saw Steve Hackett in Santa Barbara….met him after the show….amazing!
Awesome photo! I’m jealous !
Anyone here pick up the SEBTP yet? I hope to soon !
It’s really awesome. As a fan of both Genesis and the synthwave genre this is a great track !
I love all of his acoustic music! This album needs to be reissued on vinyl.
I purchased SO just after it was released. I figured this song would fly up the charts immediately, but it wasn't until the 90s that I suddenly heard it spring up in commercials, movie promos, etc. A late bloomer of a song but a good one.
Yeah it won't happen. We'll just have to settle for things like Freddy Mercury singing Your Own Special Way, and hopefully at some stage Snoop Dogg's version of Supper's Ready (Shizupper's Ready, G).
Foshizzle You, Foshizzle Me
Firth of Fizzle
Tonizzle, Tonizzle, Tonizzle
I wonder if Steve will change up the setlist when he comes to the US next year, of if he's still doing Foxtrot. I wouldn't mind hearing some other selections.
To me the live version on "Peter Gabriel Plays Live" is the definitive version of this song.
Our current president is a war monger, part of the same war machine we've seen over and over. RFK JR 2024!

Not sure if you saw my edit but I was able to purchase by not entering a code and just clicking OK.
Thank you for that update. I tried and it wouldn't let me, but then I found a code and I got tickets! Happy Day!
Same here unfortunately. General sale is tomorrow so guess we'll have to wait until then.
Tickets in Austin are on sale through the UT PAC and need a presale code so far. But maybe that will change when tix go on sale this morning? I’ll see!
The version on “Genesis Live” is my favorite!
