    Gonna wait for the dvd...most of the reviews have been pretty brutal. Well, as far as people who review prog rock stuff.

    I hear tell that they pretty much skip over Anthony Phillips, most of the era between PG leaving and SH leaving.

    Just too much history to cram into 90 minutes.

    I'm gonna turn it off as soon as they get to Gabriel leaving.

    BTW I saw their 1st American concert, it was a WNEW Christmas show months before their first US tour.

    No shit?

    I have a neighbor who is in the concert sound business, and he saw them here in Rochester in 1973. He was hooked right away, even though he had never heard them before.

    Fast forward a bunch of years, and his company has worked with PG on quite a few projects. He ended up being friends with Tony Levin, as Tony had lived here when he went to the Eastman School.

    I have seen pics of my neighbor with PG, his mom and dad etc...

    Small fucking world.

    Fuck

    It was actually their 2nd US show


    They would eventually go on to massive touring success stateside, but Genesis made their U.S. debut on Dec. 11, 1972 with a sparsely-attended gig at Boston’s Brandeis University.

    ‘Foxtrot’ reached No. 12 in the U.K. charts, and with an American label finally firmly on board, Genesis performed at Brandeis University as a warm-up gig for the group’s “official” American debut two days later at Philharmonic Hall in New York. Shows from that era featured Gabriel in makeup and costume changes for every song in the set, which included such Genesis essentials as ‘The Musical Box,’ ‘Return of the Giant Hogweed‘ and ‘The Knife.’ But the highlight of the set was undoubtedly ‘Supper’s Ready,’ which featured Gabriel ascending to the heavens via a system of wires at the song’s conclusion.

    Though the band’s first U.S. “tour” basically consisted of just those two shows, they returned to America in 1973 for a series of higher-profile gigs, and once the word-of-mouth began to spread, Genesis ultimately went on to become a reliable arena-filling headline act by the mid-to-late ’70s. In the ’80s the group — now led by Phil Collins — would go on to become one of the largest concert draws in the world on the back of a vast catalog of pop hits.
