R.E.M. Live in Madrid - Drive
Michael Stipe had, I think, a sore throat that day and a very raspy voice, but boy does he deliver! My favourite version of the song.
That sent me down an R.E.M rabbit hole over the weekend. Big Fan
Battle of Epping Forest + Whodunnit
The Whodunnit in the Battle of Epping Forest, why Liquid Len of course.
I have a feeling Genesis is not going to do Home By The Sea 1/2.
My wishful songs:
Robbery Assault & Battery
Fly on a Windshield/Broadway Melody Of 1974
Blood on the Rooftops
In the Quiet Earth
Eleventh Earl of Mar
Man On The Corner
And all of of Duke
I doubt there will be halves. Two hours straight, possibly with the band leaving the stage and returning for an encore.
And they won't ever play the entire Cinema Show again. Mike has "forgotten" the unusual guitar tuning of the opening lines and has declined to re-learn them since 1983.
I meant the second half of Cinema Show (musical section) not the actual show... My wording was a bit strange.
Cinema Show starting at the second half will be the opening song. Prove me wrong Genesis, I dare you.
I saw Genesis in Detroit that tour. We slept out for tickets with 500 others. Fantastic.
My buddy and I were air-drumming to ITC/Medley, waiting for Afterglow, and when heard Apocalypse 9/8 we freaking lost it.
I think the best concert version is King Biscuit at the Los Angeles Forum: Touch To Supper's Ready
Take me home
Long long way to go
The order changes from time to time, but live versions are the best.
Let's face it, most bands favour their recent material live, especially when there's an album to promote. We've all seen it, and it's part of the way it works usually.
There is no new material. There's old stuff, very old stuff, and ancient stuff.
Some may say biblical....
I'm watching the mama tour video right now, and am inspired to guess that the opening track on this tour will be
A - Mama
Or if not then my wildcard guess
B - Lamb Lies down on Broadway
Assuming the "usual" TIOA/BTL guesses aren't correct
I was watching the MAMA tour last week and was thinking it is strange TIOA with all the non-Genesis songs, they could have played Supper's Ready.
This is my fav band at the moment, called The Hu Band. They are a Mongolian folk/rock band, takes a minute for the video to get going but give it a listen, it is addictive.
My wife had tickets to see these guys last March but decided not to go do to be safe.
I seem to enjoy underrated music by bands, like it's a secret or something. This is surely one of the best examples. No, it's not perfect. It's pretty messy and chaotic actually (and the 13th is awful) but a lot of the chaos is joyous and beautiful. Want, This is a Lie and Jupiter Crash are terrific.
Day after day play out our lives..."
I wasn't familiar with this album at all. I started listening to a few days ago and can't stop. Thank you for posting.
bummer not posting to the US
When the tour gets on its way, this or a new thread that does have the set list will have *SPOILER ALERT*?
I really like to be surprised. I know that is hard in this day and age, but I was able to hold back most of the set list in 2007 and was surprised with a few songs.
I wonder which track will open the show.
Land of confusion?
what do you think?
If Genesis started with Behind the Lines I think they will do Duchess as well.
Maybe something like Dodo/Lurker.
My money is on Land of Confusion.
Yes. Neither of his two solo albums are available on iTunes either. It’s a shame. Especially right now with Genesis active again and whatnot, there is an interest in all things Genesis related.
I'm surprised. Mike's solo albums used to by on iTunes. I did however find The Anon's Pennsylvania Flickhous under Anonymous
I love the Genesis Museum watermark
Thanks for sharing Nanunami. I don't remember Genesis playing the Lamb during that tour. I will have to dig through some of my old recordings.
