The Musical Box returns to the Living Arts Centre, premiering their brand new show, A Genesis Extravaganza: Volume 2. This is their only stop in the GTA!
In an all-out performance of live visual signature stunts, a museum-worthy array of vintage instruments and a dizzying pace of iconic tracks and stage rarities, The Musical Box indulges in an intense trip into the world of early Genesis for the first time in its 25-year existence! From its unique perspective as the only band ever licensed and supported by Genesis and Peter Gabriel, The Musical Box presents a new, never-performed show featuring the music of Trespass, Nursery Cryme, Foxtrot, Selling England By The Pound, The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway, A Trick of the Tail and Wind & Wuthering, as well as a few surprises!
“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
Acclaimed for its historical re-enactment of early Genesis, The Musical Box has performed for more than a million spectators worldwide in some of the most prestigious venues, including The London Royal Albert Hall and The Paris Olympia. The Musical Box had the privilege of hosting Phil Collins and Steve Hackett as performing guests. In its quest for authenticity, The Musical Box is often cited as the best interpretation group in the world, and the international reference for early Genesis.
“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 virtualy 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
The event takes place at 8:00 pm on September 26 at Hammerson Hall. For tickets, call 905-306-6000 or visit www.livingartscentre.ca.
