genesisTickets for Genesis go on sale at 9am Friday 24th November.
Genesis is a member of a small elite of British bands that have not only achieved massive international success but have sustained this over four decades. The news that the band’s most successful line-up of Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford were reforming after a break of 15 years for a European tour, was seized on by both fans and media alike.
Genesis have a sort of Midas Touch: the band released a series of groundbreaking albums in the seventies, became superstars in the eighties, survived the departures of not one but two lead vocalists/members at a crucial stage in their career, and have inspired tribute bands dedicated to just about every album in their superlative catalogue. They have sold over 130 million albums worldwide, played 1400 shows, including some of the most ambitious and theatrical performances ever staged, and gone from bottom of the bill with their Charisma label mates Lindisfarne and Van Der Graaf Generator in 1971 to headlining four consecutive sell-out dates at Wembley Stadium in 1987 playing to 288,000 people in total
They have topped the charts around the world with albums as diverse as Duke, Abacab, Genesis, Invisible Touch and We Can’t Dance and they remain a staple at radio across Europe, the US, Canada and beyond with tracks like ‘I Know What I Like’, ‘Follow You, Follow Me’, ‘Mama’, ‘That’s All’, ‘In Too Deep’, ‘Land Of Confusion’, ‘Tonight, Tonight, Tonight’ and ‘Throwing It All Away’. They have influenced bands as diverse as Simple Minds, Marillion, It Bites, the Flaming Lips, Elbow, The Feeling and Captain. In fact, over thirty years before Pete Doherty sang about ‘Albion’, Genesis took their Lewis Carroll/Alice In Wonderland infused vision of Britain around the world with albums like Nursery Cryme, Foxtrot and Selling England By The Pound.
