|The End of Days. Apocalypse. Supper's Ready (for you aging Genesis fans).|
Well, I'm not that aging, but I saw them in Albany last September. I had to sit throught their post-1980 top-40 garbage, but the handful of old gems they played - anad played well - was worth it.
It killed me to see hundreds of thirty-somethings get up and leave during their last encore song - the Carpet Crawlers...
A fan? Cool!! Pre- or post-Gabriel departure? :)
I first saw them at the Whiskey-a-Go-Go in Hollywood is nineteen-mumbledy-something. Peter Gabriel in a giant tetrahedral papier-mache head, bouncing around to Apocalypse in 9/8 time. I was so-o-o-o-o-o stoned.
I saw them for the first time at the Santa Monica Civic, 1973, Selling England By the Pound tour with Gabriel. Fabulous.
The best post-Gabriel show for me was Berkeley Community Theatre, ~1976. They had King Crimson's Bill Bruford on drums. The drum duels between Bruford and Collins on the instrumental parts of "The Cinema Show" and "Supper's Ready" brought down the house.
