In 2018, in an all-out performance of live visual signature stunts, a museum-worthy array of vintage instruments and a dizzying pace of hit tracks and stage rarities, The Musical Box indulged in, for the first time in its 25 year existence, an intense trip of their own imagining... into the world of early Genesis.
In 2020 they return, with Part II of A Genesis Extravaganza to perform at York Barbican on Thursday 6th February 2020.
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.
With a few added surprises thrown in for good measure, it's a performance that any Genesis fan will not want to miss!
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 such as 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.
"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
"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 virtually 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
