G2 – Definitive Genesis
Saturday 15th February
G2 Definitive Genesis pays tribute to a Vintage period in Genesis’ long and colourful history, the four-man “Seconds Out” era (1975-78), whilst also dipping back into the earlier Gabriel years. It’s the mid/late seventies; Peter Gabriel had recently departed to be replaced by relatively unknown ‘singing’ drummer Phil Collins.
Rather than being doomed to failure, the four man era of Hackett, Banks, Rutherford and Collins lifted the band’s fame to even greater heights with the studio albums ‘Trick Of The Tail’ and ‘Wind and Wuthering’. Successive world tours culminating in three sold out nights at London’s Earls Court and the subsequent release of the live album ‘Seconds Out’ put Genesis into the super-group category.
