Wonderful track. It's not outstanding, but surely will add nicely to the i/o stuff. And it has a groove!

Yet another marvelous piece of fan-work. Will dig in later.
I confirm. I was there during soundcheck in Verona. They've rehearsed loudly in the early afternoon some "Sledgehammer" repetitions without PG. Probably just for checking the PA in the Arena. Then they came back with PG in the late afternoon (I think it was 5 or 5.30 p.m.) and they've rehearsed again without the PA on. So you can't hear very clear because they were using only the sound from their monitors onstage (it was barely audible only staying very close to the stage). At this point they've tried out 2 or 3 times different portions of a new song not in the final setlist, and I'm sure about the song title because the incipit of the chorus is the title of the track repeated twice. It seemed a full band, mid-tempo slightly melancholic track, close to "Live and Let Live" or "Olive Tree" style for the little I can hear. The title of the song is down here to not spoil:
ok, perhaps I just didn't hear this one. Hope this will appear soon.
I am uncertain all the time when it comes to this question
I recently rediscovered Abacab, so it has replaced NC in my Top3. Then Wind and Duke.
same here. Just changed from Lamb to Selling ....
During soundcheck, they rehearsed / played another new and unknown track they may appear in the set shortly.
I can't confirm that. I don't remember exactly what they rehearsed but there was nothing new to me.
But "So Much" appeared on Tony Levin's setlist sheet, see here.
Anyone else maybe can provide better info?
So we’ll see whether or not he will play another new song
Not sure if "So Much" was rehearsed in Verona. I heard the soundcheck and didn't hear anything familiar.
Show in Paris had a great vibe. WLA wasn't played - which is a bit sad, I like it. But the show is quite long anyway and Peter is 73. So this really is high level!
I haven't seen anything hilarious 🤔
see ca. at 2:20 min 😅
Off to Milan.
I was really rushing to be there in time yesterday and the weather wasn’t really nice. So I hope for a relaxed experience today!
13. Very strong track! But there are a few better ones on that album so 13 is a appropriate rating imo
Yesterday they rehearsed another completely unknown / new track in Verona. So that could also find its way onto the album. Let’s wait what kind of song this is (and what it’s name is)
Blukaos - have you heard this one during soundcheck?
I wasn’t sure but had the same impression. That must have been a new track they rehearsed. Maybe tonight in Milan …

Find the differences....same hesitations same pauses...very strange....either Peter is a genius or the vocal track is recorded....
Seriously, those are clearly live takes. But you seem to seek the negative. Why? Such a strange approach to music we like.
I wonder why you haven’t posted anything about the hilarious In Your Eyes fuck-up in Krakow yet …
Heard it in Austria on the radio the other day, but I think it was the bright side mix. Anyway, nice he gets some airplay.
Still nothing "extra" on BANDCAMP yet (alternative version, demo or anything like that). I wonder why.
Mike played better - guitar - on the Last Domino Tour but on bass - and on Jesus - he played very well IMO!
Yes I agree, Mike was in good shape during the Genesis tour.
About Jesus: Was more thinking about Tim. I don't think this track is a good one for him.
Nice report, thanks for posting. I especially appreciate the addition of the choir. Was skeptical this could work, but obviously it did.
Are there more Orchestra-show planned?
That's one of my favorites by the Mechanics. A very straight, but still kind of unique songwriting and arrangement. It works like as well. A great album as well!
I’m on the hunt for the original raw transfer from the master of this recording, could anyone help me please? Thank you in advance if you can.
Are you sure this show was recorded professionally?
I'm sure Drennan is a nice guy and all.
But his guitar playing as well as the solo, on Jesus,
Even ghost got closer to what should be played.
Ghost are a metal band, that's a very different style.
Don't forget it's recorded with a mobile phone. Everything sounds a bit muffled here. Tim got a lot of criticism on his singing, based on that video. But those who were there claimed they sounded great.
For the solo part, I tend to favor his "more relaxed" approach he has compared to Daryl (and I like Daryl too - but the same goes with Firth of Fifth back in 1998, also because of the improvisation that was different every night).
I've read on Facebook that Anto apparently played a bit of Firth of Fifth (possibly during the Word of Mouth extended ending at the end of the concert). Nice ! I would like to see that.
Of course you are right but still it looks to me like they simply made the wrong decisions (choosing Jesus...) and also, Mike is not really playing well. Keep in mind he played really well during the Last Domino Tour!
Back from Wuppertal. Saw the first night. Minor problems during the opening tracks and obviously Amanda had problems as well (she didn't sing anymore on Sat and Sun), Steve a little handicapped but in general a fabulous show and sound and especially the choir added some atmosphere that was missing in London 2019. Don't wanna miss that show, it was simply stunning.
The 2007 tour was pretty notable in that intervening period.
of course. But not much more. That was my point. We pretty much lived without any major Genesis activity for two decades, so the full stop last year wasn't really suprising ... nor "painful"
no other choice. It's in my PG all-time top 5. The whole album is stunning.
he actual assassination scene in the song mirrors more the JFK shooting, with the president riding in an open limousine.
I know that story as well but did Peter ever confirm it's about JFK?
