Genesis has been arguably my favorite band since I was about 10 (older brother and sister).   I've seen them a dozen or so times over the years, but never with Peter Gabriel (who i've seen a dozen+ times solo).   I don't really think much about Hackett or  Phillips or for that matter even Rutherford when I think of the band.  Gabriel, Collins and Banks are Genesis to me. So their music is now roughly 50 years old, meaning the band members are roughly 70+.  The current options for seeing their music are Phil Collins from a chair with a weak voice and what looks to be very rough timing (tragic, given his drumming abilities), a cover band sounding a lot like the original band with the lead guitarist for the first half-dozen albums, or the Tribute band who's been at if for decades now...down to Gabriel's shaved head.  Which do you go see if you had one choice?
 For me...I'd go see The Musical Box.
 
i'd go see the version with manbird playing the theremin and ov on the harp

Based on the dates found here: http://www.hackettsongs.com/to...
We may have to count on our Swedish friends to answer that question.

I could enjoy that.  Like the set list.

Both of our phones are old android, mine a 3G which goes dead in February next year.  We only take them online with WiFi so there is that, too.  Can't trust them enough for something like this.  Sigh.


For better or worse - I think this is the way that all these things are going. I used ticketmaster.  They generate a sort of animated bar-code thingy, so that you can't just do a screen-shot. But as someone stated below - they have way of saving it to a wallet of sorts. You can even share or sell your tickets to someone else by linking to them through the app.  It's a brave new scary, interconnected world...

I've used a few different apps for ticket apps, and they are honestly pretty easy.  If you have an iPhone, you can usually save the tickets to your "wallet" for easy retrieval.   I went to a college football game the other week where they used the near-field communication to scan the tickets without a UPC / QR code showing....it was strange. So long as you're comfortable with your phone, and have a pretty good battery (so you don't have to worry about it dying on you)...I wouldn't let a bit of technology stop you. I'm not sure if you saw the reviews from Chicago the other night?  Here's one with some video.

Turns out that Phil's kid is a real drummer. (IMO - totally kept the feel of Phil's drumming style without completely mimicking it.)
If they are coming to your town, and you love Genesis - go.
This review says it better than I can.
The reviewer attended the same show I was at.

I loved Genesis as a teenager both with Gabriel and with Collins until maybe the "I Can't Dance" song debacle.  

I took my wife to see Genesis as one of our first dates together which was about 35 years ago. I saw that they were going to be playing in our area in December and asked my wife if she would want to go. She said "no" because she thought Phil Collins was too old, too sad and shouldn't be singing anymore. I couldn't really argue her point. 





I lost interest when Gabriel left.

Sadly, by the time they are on tour in the US that video will be pushing 3 years old.  Father time remains undefeated.


I agree 100% with you. And we will be seeing more and more groups we loved when we were young trying to recapture what they once were. It’s sad you know. Just got to love my vinyl all that much more.

How can you not love Gandolf on base, cat woman on backing vocals and 70yo grandpa singing at the kitchen table. 🤔
I was thinking his voice was shot, but it was acceptable.
