Oh, I didn't know they were so close to playing I Know What I like after Firth of Fifth...
Slippermen? When was that added?
Sorry, I meant Riding the Scree...
I don't think it's Genesis.
I quickly listened to From Genesis To Revelation (very first album, it's the only one I don't know by heart), and I didn't recognise any song.
But you were right in a way, it could have been them, in the very early years of the band.
Considering the years, there is very little chance it's coming from the West, don't you think ?
How do you remember it ? Do you know the circumstances ? Any lyrics or words ?
It's quite amazing that you remember the melody that well from hearing just once !
Tony struggled also with the quick run before the Slippermen bit...
He got back on track quickly.
Well, this tour shows they're human after all.
replacing the 666 vocal part with a guitar seems an odd fit
You're probably right. I was just experimenting.
You can attach ZIP files. So, zip your audio file and send it !
Here it is, you just have to unzip it. I took the 1986 version of Apocalypse, so the sound is absolutely not the same, it's just to give you an idea. Forget about the vocals, replace it with Daryl's guitar playing the melody instead.
Sorry for the very bad audio quality, I couldn't upload a bigger file...
Well, Audacity might work, if you want to do basic editing.
- Fading Lights
- Apocalypse in 9/8
I don't know how it's possible they didn't think about doing it that way... Especially given the keys in which they are playing these songs now...
Fading Lights is now in E major (Bb or A Major before)
(a little drum fill and you go into...)
Apocalypse which is also in E (organ solo part)
(here, they would stop after "666..." maybe played on guitar by Daryl, as he did with Guide Vocal in 2007, until the main 9/8 riff slows down and ends at the B Major chord... into...)
Afterglow which is in E Major too (G major before, F in 2007).
It looks like it would be quite smooth.
Also, I don't know why they didn't try to link Dance on a Volcano with Cinema Show... just before the drum solo, DOAV ends on a A major chord (listen to 1977, 1980, 1981), so the transition to Cinema Show, also in A, seems quite obvious.
Well, it seems that Steve puts a jab in at his former teammates once in a while still
Well, Tony did a bit of that too, particularly just after Steve's departure...

Tony since acknowledged that he had "lost an ally" when Steve left the band.
And Steve defended Tony against some of his fans ("Genesis is not Genesis without you... blah-blah")
Home By the Sea - C minor (two whole notes)
Second Home By the Sea - E minor (original key) - he sings the last lines differently so he avoids the higher notes
I have perfect pitch too, and the transition between the two feels... curious, to say the least (like "uh... ok"). It's almost like the two parts are unrelated. C minor is much more moody, E minor is a lot brighter.
Funny how we feel keys... I feel Duchess in C major (it works great in this version), but it is because I take the chorus as a reference. Tonight is in B minor (very low for me), because I take the verse as a reference.
Well, I don't know if I shall try to comfort you in any way by telling you anything that might lower your expectations - or the contrary (I watched a video, so now I know)...
I forgot to put spoilers, but since it's in the "Last Domino Tour" section...
This forum is very tempting nowadays, it's understandable...
Excuse me, I didn't follow the rules.
Mike, Anthony, and Daryl played it together. It was a great moment.
What a treat !
"To which show would you be going ?"
Does a fan have to choose ?
Well, I like that solo too (very much in fact...).
Less "pyrotechnic" than the 1992-2007 one. And being a Jazz musician, I like when it's improvised (Anthony seemed to play differently each time, as Daryl did in 1981).
Here for example :
By the way, I also like the way Daryl plays it for the current tour.
Watching the videos, it appears Home By The Sea is challenging too.
The two parts, being played in completely different keys (C minor/E minor), sound kind of weird to me (it was already the case for the 1997/2007 versions).
Mama sounds great, Phil's "new voice" made me feel even more "ill-at-ease" towards the song's character than previous versions.
Playing That's All in this acoustic arrangement is self-evident. It works really well.
I wonder what thinking goes on when they’re planning the order?
Mike : - Well guys, what do we choose as an opener ? I don't want anything too complicated, no weird guitar tuning. We should play it safe...
Tony : - Behind The Lines is great, I wrote that part, and Duke is my favourite album.
Mike : - You're right. Plus we did it last time, it worked well.
Phil : - Ok guys.
I'm sure it happened like this.
But they're right, it works very well objectively.
When Phil came out of retirement in 2016, I imagined Genesis being reunited with Nic and Ray, with Phil on backing vocals and hand percussion (because of Phil's voice lowering and Peter not wanting anything to do with Genesis). I thought about Wot Gorilla as an opener...
Coming back to the setlist, I really wonder why they kept Throwing It All Away, Tonight and Invisible Touch...
Phil played 2 of these songs on his solo tour, exactly the same way.
And TTT does not have any purpose played that way, I think.
I know IT is "the big hit", so it's complicated to do without it. But you know...
2 songs from IT is enough - but essential ! - for me (and these two songs, LOC and Domino are the basis of the show in a way).
I would have left room for other songs (From Trick...).
I really like Carpet Crawlers (personal favorite), but I would have preferred a more energetic closing. They did it in 1998 and 2007, so it would have been a nice change. Musical Box in E or D Major could have worked, I think.
Anyway...() what a great show it seemed to be !
Did he play any drums ? (just asking because of the rumors about pictures of his drumkit in some emails and stuff, but I probably already know the answer...)
