Well I’m definitely going and very much looking forward to it. It will not all be 1980s pop songs as some have said but expect a possibly similar set to the 2007 one which included songs such as In The Cage; Cinema Show; Afterglow; Firth of Fifth; I Know What I Like; Ripples; Carpet Crawlers; Domino; and Los Endos

This was the set list when I saw them in August 1992 at Knebworth. Funny, I remember the person I was with wasn't a fan and wanted to leave half way through Dance on a Volcano, so I said Ok we'll go as soon as they play Turn It On Again. Which was the last song they played!!  
Land of Confusion
Play Video
No Son of Mine
Play Video
Driving the Last Spike
Play Video
Old Medley
Dance on a Volcano
Play Video
The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway
Play Video
The Musical Box
(closing section)

Firth of Fifth
Play Video
I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)
(with snippets of That's All/… more )
Play Video
Throwing It All Away

Turn It On Again


I imagine the set will be similar to this. I might have to do a massive about turn and get tickets. Why can't they come to Cardiff?? Dilemma!!

Hmmm - I'm really unfamiliar with most of Genesis' Gabriel-era material, other than "TLLDOB" which got lots of radio play when I was a teen.

The first song I came to know as a "Genesis" song was "Misunderstanding," which means Duke was the first Genesis album that saw serious radio play around my hometown. Abacab took the world by storm and the rest is history. I see from the setlists that my favorite Genesis songs from this early '80s era - "Misunderstanding," "Man on the Corner," "Paperlate" - don't make the cut nowadays.

I really did not like the singles they pumped out at the end of the Collins era, which I see are heavily featured.

I'm still going...  Smiley

But with a band that has lasted over 50 years, you won’t get every one of your favourites in a set...same goes for Fairport, they can’t play everything

I remember being at Knebworth in August 1992 as well followed by the gig at Earls Court in November later on that year. That was my last gig before I was rushed into hospital to be put on dialysis for the next 7 years  Huh

The version of Genesis that I was familiar with was the one that played the Hammersmith Odeon in the early '70s. PG was undoubtedly the star and "The Battle Of Epping Forest" was hilarious and brilliantly executed on the night I saw them. Later versions of Genesis were of less interest, culminating in "Calling All Stations", which I heard but didn't even consider buying.

I recall the way the crowd at Milton Keans Bowl (six of the best) jumped about 3 feet into the air when  Gabriel said "The Knife".  Mid you the splash of muddy water when everyone landed was annoying.

For all those missing the Gabriel years I strongly suggest getting to see Steve Hackett on his UK tour this year (or at Cropredy...)
You still won't get to see PG doing Genesis, but you'll get the wonderful and enigmatic Nad Sylvan's interpretations, the amazing Roger King on keyboards,  the stupendous Craig Blundell on drums, the statuesque Jonas Reingold on bass & 12 string, the hugely talented Rob Townsend on a variety of instruments  plus the master himself playing those soaring chords and tight arpeggios. Prog heaven.

The other quarter and I have had a chat and we're not going to see Genesis. It's too far and it's too expensive.


I remember being at Knebworth in August 1992 as well followed by the gig at Earls Court in November later on that year. That was my last gig before I was rushed into hospital to be put on dialysis for the next 7 years  Huh
Blimey! I hope the two aren't connected  Shocked

No, not connected but means that I try to take every opportunity I can to see bands before things go wrong again so, despite the expense, I’ve already secured decent tickets at the O2 to see Genesis for the 5th time  Smiley

Some friends have been trying to obtain tickets this morning, but I have reluctantly had to bow out.  Do I want to see Genesis (never seen them yet)?  Yes I do.  But at something over £80 a pop for the cheapest seats it is just beyond my means.

I'd also recommend The Musical Box - I know tribute bands aren't to everyone's taste, but they really are exceptional. The closest to the real thing without the use of a time machine! Steve Hackett has been known to sit in with them on occasions.
