The internationally acclaimed French Canadian band The Musical Box, famed for their historically faithful re-enactments of Genesis are coming to the UK in October 2018 with a brand new show, which for the first time in the band’s 25 year history enters the world and music of early Genesis. The tour comes to Theatre Royal Brighton on Friday 12 October.
As the only band ever licensed and supported by Genesis and Peter Gabriel, The Musical Box’s latest show features some iconic tracks from the albums Trespass, Nursery Cryme, Foxtrot, Selling England by the Pound, The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, A Trick of the Tail and Wind and Wuthering plus a few surprises. Including live visual stunts, theatrical tricks and a vast array of vintage musical instruments, this show is an intense trip back in time into the world of early Genesis.
The band has performed for more than a million spectators globally in some of the world’s most prestigious venues including the Royal Albert Hall and the Paris Olympia and has hosted both Phil Collins and Steve Hackett as guest performers.
The Musical Box is the only band ever to be licensed and supported by Genesis and Peter Gabriel whose testimonies to the band’s authenticity can be seen below:
‘The Musical Box recreated, very accurately I must say, what Genesis was doing. I saw them in Bristol with my children so they could see what their father did back then’ – Peter Gabriel
‘They’re not a tribute band, they have taken a period and are faithfully reproducing it in the same way that someone would do a theatrical production’ – Phil Collins
‘I cannot imagine that you could have a better tribute for any act. They not only manage to sound, but look virtually identical. It seems as though nothing is too difficult for them’ – Steve Hackett
‘It was better than the real thing actually. It was great, that was fantastic’ – Mike Rutherford
‘The guy who does Peter Gabriel is brilliant’ – Tony Banks
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to go back to the 70s and relive some of Genesis’s iconic musical performances this Autumn.
Friday 12 October, 8pm – Theatre Royal, New Road, Brighton BN1 1SD
