THE MUSICAL BOX, internationally acclaimed for its historical re-enactment of early Genesis’ works, is coming to the UK to perform The Black Show a re-imagining of their performance of Selling England By The Pound, featuring classic songs from all of the early albums. The emblematic 1974 show, originally only ever seen in America, allowed Genesis and Peter Gabriel to attain rockstar status, enjoying to this day a cult following from nostalgic and young music lovers alike.
With Peter Gabriel’s famous theatrics and Genesis’ unique musicianship, the band’s artistry would produce some of the most iconic images and sounds of the progressive rock era, such as the mythic, 23 minutes long Supper’s Ready, considered to be one of the most intense live music experiences ever created.
Exclusively licensed by Peter Gabriel and Genesis, THE MUSICAL BOX has performed for more than a million spectators worldwide in some of the most prestigious venues such as the London Royal Albert Hall, and had the privilege of receiving Phil Collins and Steve Hackett from Genesis as performing guests. With its quest for authenticity, THE MUSICAL BOX is often cited as the best interpretation group in the world, proving the relevance of performing contemporary classics.
Take a little trip back in time…
“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
“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
“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
