"Genesis' imaginative music arrives in one of the most evocative locations in the world. In an anthological show lasting almost three hours, Estro will retrace with fidelity and passion the most engaging pages of the English band's production. The historic Roman band, whose sound is characterized by the powerful two-battery formation, will focus on the masterpieces of the golden age (1971/1976) of Genesis, giving the public an evening of great emotions. "
The Oberons will revive what is called the "Golden Era" of Genesis, undisputed protagonists of the progressive experience from 1970 to 1977. The repertoire embraces the Genesian discography from 'Trespass' to 'Wind & Wuthering' and there could also be surprising " unscheduled. "
"25 years after the first time we performed ALL THE LAMB LIES DOWN at Palladium, we will offer you a total immersion in the incredible world of RAEL.
In Cavea comes the staging of the masterpiece of GENESIS as Peter Gabriel would have liked.
Thanks to a 3D screen of 12 by 6 meters, the spectator will be able to enter and be enveloped in the world of Rael.
A super band formed by REVELATION and SQUONK and embellished even more by cameos of great artists will drag you into a modern and technological Lamb.
A great party for lovers of the English band which will also be an opportunity to finally understand the meaning of this work so loved, but so enigmatic and painful. And to be able to rediscover its great modernity and actuality. "
"The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway is not only the last album of Genesis with Peter Gabriel, but above all the conception and realization of a suggestive and innovative artistic project, in which music, narration and images meet and collide with an effect disruptive.
In the concerts of 1974 and 1975, Rael's journey from the Broadway pavements to the underground world populated by a series of incredible characters, was marked not only by the notes of the extraordinary Genesis soundtrack, but also by the slides projected behind the musicians and imaginative costumes worn by Gabriel himself.
In the show staged by the Estro (Genesis coverband) with the fundamental contribution of the company RBR Illusionist Theater and the direction of Luigi Caiola, the surreal events narrated in the concept materialize in front of the spectator's eyes in a new form, giving life to a multimedia experience with vivid and dazzling colors.
But the program of the evening does not end here: after singing the events of Rael, Estro will give the audience another hour of pure progressive rock, thanks to the rigorous reinterpretation of the great classics of the English band."
Ant is very thin and appears destroyed, but the band does not have the time to notice what is happening in the friend's soul. It is a time when things seem to move. They just registered Trespass (will be released in the fall) and they are on tour, even if the dates are not for large numbers, as we will see later.
"After the recording sessions I felt like a zombie", Phillips said in 2007. He also had health problems, probably related to too much work.
"I was mentally and physically debilitated - told Ant seven years later to Armando Gallo and reported in his book Genesis: I Know What I Like -. We were a bunch of perfectionists. After each concert there were always long, long, long autopsies".
The music he loves so much is becoming the cause of unhappiness for Antand his good English education prevents him from facing his teammates hard-nosed to try to change the dynamics of the band. "I no longer felt like anyone's friend - continues Ant - I was almost alienated. We were now divided into two groups that had lost their way".
Mike is the first to know Ant's intentions. Just before a concert at the Richmond Rugby Club, they retreated and the revelation arrived like a cold shower. Rutherford knows that his friend is afraid of the stage, but there was no time to deepen the speech and Ant had no longer mentioned his phobia.
Here is a very rare Genesis video in concert at that time. It was filmed at the Atomic Sunrise Festival on March 11, 1970 at the Roundhouse Club in London:
That July 18th ad Haywards Heath Genesis play in front of 25 people.The journey home Mile Rutherford and Peter Gabriel do it in Pete's new car, a Hillman Imp. Together they take the situation into consideration.
"For me there was no doubt that without Ant the Genesis had no reason to exist", remembers Mike inautobiography. Anthony seems irreplaceable, the Genesis appear to be indivisible, the urge to quit is about to take over.
Yet during the journey something different matures, the idea of being able to do it even without a friend takes over. "It was about developing a new philosophy based on the assumption 'let's try and see what happens'", writes Mike. So no pause is considered to allow Anthony to gather ideas. Must go on.
Here are the Genesis that perform the unpublished "The Shepherd"live on the BBC radio program"Nightride"on April 22, 1970. Probably the oldest live Genesis recorded on a disc, the bootleg homonym:
A decision shared also by Tony Banks and that today seems right, but very painful: "It was the hardest blow we've ever received"Gabriel said to a magazine the following year and quoted in Without Frontiers: The Life and Music of Peter Gabriel by Daryl Easlea."There would be other departures - reveals Mike -, but none would have the effect on me that leaving Ant had".
The Genesis take advantage of this to make a small revolution. Phil Collins, who will be supporting the audition in these days, and Steve Hackett are about to join the band.
A bond with Ant, however, has not broken. In his first solo album The Geese And The Ghost, there is several material composed with Mike. Phil Collins sings in two tracks and John Hackett plays the flute there. And in the first demos of Peter Gabriel after leaving Genesis there is Ant's hand.
