The Musical Box, internationally acclaimed for its historical re-enactement of early Genesis' works, is coming to Montreal to perform The Black Show, the emblematic 1974 performance that made Genesis and Peter Gabriel attain rock star status, enjoying to this day a cult following from nostalgic and young music lovers alike.
On the trail of their first visit, Genesis is back in America in '74 to promote Selling England by the Pound, but this first time, presenting the show in a whole new format, abandoning the old sets for a darker and more essential visual presentation, better suited to serve Gabriel's antics. Genesis pushes back the limits of its musicianship, venturing into a more live rendering of the songs and musical arrangements. The band's artistry will produce some of the most iconic images and sounds of the progressive rock era, such as the mythic 23 minutes long Supper's Ready. This performance captured on the famous bootleg and Super 8 film from the Montreal Cepcum in April '74, has become the reference to old Genesis.
Exclusively liscensed 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 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 comtemporary classics.
