G2 - Definitive Genesis
Having performed classic Genesis for nearly two decades, G2 Definitive Genesis are making their second visit to Artrix. G2 pay tribute to a vintage period in Genesis’ long and colourful history with songs from the four-man “Seconds Out” era (1975-78), and earlier Gabriel years.
In the mid-seventies Peter Gabriel had recently departed to be replaced by relatively unknown ‘singing’ drummer Phil Collins. Rather than being doomed to failure, the four man era of Hackett, Banks, Rutherford and Collins lifted the band’s fame to even greater heights with the studio albums ‘Trick Of The Tail’ and ‘Wind and Wuthering’. Successive world tours culminated in three sold out nights at London’s Earls Court and the subsequent release of the live album ‘Seconds Out’, putting Genesis into the super-group category.
Accolades posted online from recent shows include:
“Best Performance by ANY Trib Band (not just Genesis ones either) I have ever seen...”
“Thanks to all the guys from G2 who were out of this world, I really cannot describe how terrifyingly good you guys are.”
Hear classics such as Dance On A Volcano, Ripples, Entangled, Los Endos, Blood On The Rooftops, One For The Vine, and Afterglow, mixed up with the classics of the Gabriel years, Firth Of Fifth, Cinema Show, I Know What I Like and the infamous Suppers Ready. This is vintage Genesis, performed by G2 to a level Genesis themselves would be proud of! Well, Steve Hackett says he likes it…
So take a little trip back and relive those wonderful moments of your Genesis musical history with G2.
