Genesis tribute for Cardiff Tramshed

By GEM Staff Reporter in Local People

THE MUSICAL BOX, internationally acclaimed for its historical

re-enactment of early Genesis’ works, is coming back to the UK,

following their sell out 2016 tour to perform The Black Show -

a re-imagining of their critically acclaimed, progressive rock tour "Selling England By The Pound’.

Aptly timed to celebrate 50 years of Genesis in 2017, 

this year the show will include classic songs from all of the bands early albums. The emblematic 1974 show, originally 

only ever seen in America, allowed Genesis and Peter Gabriel

to attain rockstar status and became a pivotal moment in the bands history, to this day enjoying a cult following from nostalgic and

young music lovers alike.

With  Peter  Gabriel’s  famous  theatrics  and  Genesis’ 

unique musicianship,  the  band’s artistry would produce some of the most iconic images and sounds of the progressive

rock era, such as the mythic, 23 minutes long Supper’s Ready, 

considered to be on of the most intense live music experiences ever created.

The Musical Box shows are the closest fans can get today of the full Genesis,

early years tour experience.

Exclusively licensed by Peter Gabriel and Genesis, the band performed for more than a million spectators worldwide in some of the most

prestigious venues such as the London Royal Albert Hall, and had the privilege of receiving Phil Collins and Steve Hackett from Genesis as

performing guests. With its quest for authenticity, THE MUSICAL BOX is often cited as the best interpretation group in the world, proving

the relevance of performing contemporary classics.
