I've waited my whole life for original Genesis to reunite and unfortunately, it will clearly never happen. Listen, 3 person Genesis was never my thing, but its beloved by many and hopefully they will be able to pad these ticket sales. I agree that, while Peter would never do it, they'd be lucky to get Steve Hackett as another gimmick to drum up interest. However, it seems they all basically hate Steve, I have no idea why. He was barely featured in their documentary and he and I believe they have outright said they only want him if they get Peter and thats mostly because they'd have to be bothered to be asked WHY Steve isn't there. Apparently, they'd all be fine to do it without him. But if you don't have Peter, they think Steve is then a hinderance because they can't do Gabriel stuff and have too much stuff post Steve where its then weird to have him there. They'd rather just do the three of them.

To me, Gabriel Genesis is the only real Genesis. I wish these guys well, but god damn Phil might die before they actually get this tour off the ground. I wish they got back with Peter one last time, but I guess Peter wouldn't even be that Peter anymore. Oh well, a true relic of the past.

I would not go to this without Peter.

Fauxgenesis is what they should call the tour.

I agree that Genesis was at their best with Peter Gabriel. The Lamb is the second best double album ever, after Exile of course.

Thanks! I don’t think there’s any concert videos of Gabriel’s last tour with unfortunately.

Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins's presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to "Land of Confusion." In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. "In Too Deep" is the most moving pop song of the 1980s about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your @#$%&. Phil Collins's solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like "In the Air Tonight" and "Against All Odds." Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is "Sussudio," a great, great song, a personal favorite.

Okay, I need To read this book again. I love the film and Christian Bale is Patrick Bateman, but the novel is so much more. So much analytical detail grinning smiley

I'm a fan of both versions of Genesis. I do prefer Phil, as he seemed to make the music more airy and a bit more fun. With a resurgence in '80's nostalgia, I wouldn't be surprised if some younger fans wouldn't know who Peter Gabriel is...

Sledgehammer was one of the biggest-hits of the 80’s, though. The video is still seen a lot.

Been keeping an eye out for the ticket prices- floor seats at MSG are $2000 a pop, UBS Arena Belmont NY $900 for 2 tickets in the lower section at Belmont, regular seats- $370 face plus fees...Wow, I just dont get it. People are really willing to pay this kind of coin to sit in a (presumably) crowded stadium and watch an infirm Phil Collins and friends (on a telescreen, mostly) rehash the same greatest hits set (dropped another couple keys to acomodate Phils singing) they did from the previous cash grab tour? Seems cynical or worse. I would love to see people stay away in droves. How greedy can you get?

My wife wanted to go, got tix in Columbus, $153+fees which brought it to $181.40.

Considering those appear to be the cheapest tickets...its a pretty [email protected] expensive show considering I live in St. Louis so need a hotel and some time off work.

But.... oh well, can't take it with you.

I would only consider spending that much if Gabriel and Hackett were with them being that none of these tour dates are near me.

Oh yeah, I probably wouldn't be complaining so much if that were the case!

All in all, 2nd most expensive ticket I've ever purchased (only behind Stones 50 and Counting tour at the United Center in Chicago).

I guess that's what I get for not taking her in 2007 holding out for a reunion with Gabriel & Hackett. She's never seen them before, I saw them in '84.

I'd travel anywhere for a Gabriel Genesis reunion, because presumably that would never NOT include Hackett to avoid questions about why he isn't there.

For a fraction of the price, in a venue where you can actually see and hear everything- Steve Hacketts Genesis Revisited- which returns to the US in 2022 looks (and sounds)like alot better bet to me. Impressive performance...as are all the clips Ive checked out.

I had a presale code and was trying to get NY tickets for a friend with a $150 price limit. Worst seats in MSG were $156 plus fees. Nope, not happening.
