    Once good thing about if the American leg has to go before the European leg is that Youtube recordings and setlists will appear


    I know from experience some artists don't permit recording of any note at gigs but the few bad eggs would still do it . Personally im in favour of recording once its not disturbing others

    It's funny because in 2007, I knew the complete set list before attending the concert in Montreal. I even had had a chance to see a video of their performance in Dusseldorf. So I felt very relaxed when they finally hit the stage. I was siting at the sixth row, at roughly 60 feet of Tony Banks, my hero, and I even saw him say "Merci" (I was able to read his lips from that distance) . What a nice gesture from him, even if the crowd never got to hear him or read his lips, he still was gracious enough to thank us in French!!!

    Does anyone know the ticket prices? I'm going no matter what, but do I need to hold off buying a car? :)

    I am on the pre-sale list for Detroit.

    I guess it is safe to expect the cheaper seats to start at $75-90 and the front row center seats should be around $250-300. Genesis is still ranked as a major band and they are likely to charge the maximum price available on the market.

    From what I've been hearing, the earliest date for an officially approved vaccine is spring 2021. But it will not be administered overnight. They will start by health staff, first responders (firefighters and police), then they will take care of the most vulnerable population (seniors), and then the rest of the population. This will take time. And that is only for the first dose. Apparently, a second dose is necessary to ensure immunity. At the very earliest, the whole process could be completed - if things go well, and things never go well -, by early 2022. I think the end of 2022, early 2023 is more realistic. So, forget any full scale shows with full audience before that.

    Their best bet would be to announce as 12-month postponement. I don't see how any large-scale gigs can take place for the next year.

    I agree. Just think of all the preparation, the material, the trucks, the insurance, the hotels, the whole thing has to be prepared way in advance and as of now no one can be sure that we're all going to be able to gather by thousands in a given space by the end of the year. Unless you desperately seek presidential reelection, but that's another story...

    Here is the set list I expect them to play on the LD tour:


    Turn It On Again

    No Son of Mine

    Blood on the Rooftops or Many Too Many

    Land of Confusion

    Abacab

    Mama

    Ripples

    Domino/ The Last Domino

    Hold On My Heart

    Follow You Follow Me

    In The Cage/ Cinema Show/ Afterglow

    Throwing It All Away

    Drum Duet

    Los Endos

    Tonight Tonight Tonight

    Invisible Touch

    I Can't Dance

    Carpet Crawlers

    I love Supper's Ready and enjoy it all the way through. But if it had been broken up as individual songs, I probably would mainly focus on Lover's Leap, Apocalypse, and ASAEIE. Whereas each of the Duke Suite tracks (well, maybe except Guide Vocal) are great on their own and then make a greater whole strung together (if only on tour and in my head).

    Yes, but the point is Supper's Ready was not broken up while the so-called "Duke suite" was never intended to be a complete song. We are talking about a comparison between something that existed and something that never did. This is more a game of "what if", like speculating that there ever was a "Dodo suite" or a "Wind suite". Artists produce works of art and I like to think that Genesis' definite works of art appeared on their records.

    In my mind, Supper's Ready is the ultimate Genesis song. Nothing beats it. It is their masterpiece. The "Duke suite" does not even exists as such! Sure, it was called that way in relation to the tour supporting Duke, but they precisely wanted to avoid any comparison with Supper's Ready and needed to move away from their traditional sound, including long pieces, which is why the songs comprising the so-called "Duke suite were separated on the album. Later, they cut Home by the Sea and Domino in two separate parts.

    Here is a new interesting interview where tony comments his solo material, Calling All Stations, various Genesis songs and the possibility of future projects: https://www.innerviews.org/inner/tony-banks. Interesting is also the fact that for the first time it is confirmed that there was a possible long suite in Abacab comprising of Dodo/Lurker/ Submarine/ Naminamu (and other songs?). Tony also describes how he was surprised by Phil's ability to do full shows and confirms that they talked of possibly touring again with Phil's son on drums. It is quite an interesting read as Tony is quite candid about it all.


    Enjoy!

    The absolute highlight for me was the light show during Second Home by the Sea when the whole rig just moved backward.. Absolutely amazing!!
