Re: Genesis, OneRepublic, Brian Wilson and other gig tickets this week!

Although I won`t be able to go to any of the gigs [health reasons], I was/am a fan of The Beach Boys [Brian Wilson`s band] and saw them live in Birmingham in the late 60s.

I was a Genesis fan when Peter Gabriel was leader singer and queued up all night outside Hippodrome, Birmingham for front row seats for The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway tour - going way back.

In my opinion, Genesis were no longer Genesis when Peter left and Phil Collins took over as vocalist - no longer the brilliant costumes, stories, and antics on stage; no mind-stretching lyrics to their albums...

Of those listed above I would love to see Jeff Wayne's musical version of the War of the Worlds.

I was never a fan of Genesis, though did love the Beach Boys.

@Mi-Amigo @Cleoriff I was a fan of the Beach Boys as a teenager. Smiley Very Happy

 

@JAZZ-trad @Anonymous Genesis, surprisingly, I wasn't super familiar with although I had heard that Phil Collins was a part of it. Didn't realise he had replaced someone though @Mi-Amigo ! I do like his voice although can't compare the stage performance as I haven't seen Peter Gabriel perform (I think).

I read that Phil Collins' 18 year-old son will take over the drums from his father during the reunion gigs.

Genesis were brilliant when they were lead by Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins was on drums. When Peter left, I felt Genesis became bland/boring. @Marjo

If you guys have in mind any great Gabriel/Collins video examples from any Genesis material, feel free to point me to it @Cleoriff , @Mi-Amigo . Smiley Happy I'd love to take a look when I get a moment! Always up for some music history learning. grin

@Marjo 

Peter Gabriel at his best with a "live" performance of the iconic Genesis track "Supper`s Ready"

The best track the band ever recorded in my opinion...

Enjoy...

Well said @Cleoriff 

My thought exactly. As I said, I queued up for 36 hours for a front row ticket to see Genesis with Peter Gabriel on their Lamb Lies Down On Broadway tour.

After Peter left, I wouldn`t have gone to a Genesis gig if you`d paid me...
