A Flower?... from BCFC Tim, 04/11/14
Absoulutely stunning. I have seen Steve many times since first watching Genesis in 1974 and this was an immensely powerful show, with an outstanding group of musicians.
Nad Sylvan sounded unnervingly like Peter Gabriel throughout. Fountain of Salmacis and The Musical Box exemplified this with the latter bringing the huge audience to their feet.
The whole show was a high spot and rolled back the years, but with more power than originally. The Knife was as brilliant as it was unexpected and even predated Steves time with the band. His wonderful guitar solo on Firth of Fifth has never sounded better but best of all was the flawless Suppers Ready, still majestic after all this time.
To those who think this was just a trip back to yesteryear, wrong. It was a showcase of stunningly good rock music that had the hall in raptures and endures undimmed. I am now off to California to see it all over again in December.
Thanks to Steve and his superb band!
