The Musical Box...
Last Saturday Paul and I went to the Royal Albert Hall to see a band called The Musical Box faithfully recreate a 1975 tour that Genesis did of their concept album The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway.

And what a show! Amazing music, fanatastic(al) costumes, great special effects and that sort of buzz you get from an audience of obsessive fans watching their dream concert.

The show was painstaking researched to be a note for note duplicate of the original 100 date world tour that ended shortly before the departure of Peter Gabriel from the band. In fact the show has been endorsed by Gabriel himself, Phil Collins, Tony Banks, Steve Hackett and Mike Rutherford.

TLLDOB was the final album of a very creative period for Genesis when they produced (to my mind) four fantatsic albums: Nursery Cryme, Foxtrot, Selling England By The Pound and The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway.

Let's Prog!
