The Watch plays Genesis - "A Prog journey 1970/1976"
Saturday 11th April 2020
The Watch announce a European tour with their deliciously intense performances of early Genesis classics, 1970-76.
The best from Genesis first albums (including ‘76 Trick of the Tail) selected to bring you back in time to early seventies! Just close your eyes and it's like being at 70s Genesis concert.
This is not just a cold reproduction or imitation but the real vibe of a Genesis show, performed with the same energy of those early days.
No other group manages to capture the adventurousness and electricity of Genesis in their pioneering days with quite such raw emotion.
The dramatic Gabrielesque vocals of The Watch singer and the all-round instrumental excellence of the band ensure a special tour not to be missed.
Steve Hackett (Genesis lead guitarist) says: "The Watch is a band of very talented people and I recommend them."
Paul Whitehead (Genesis graphic artist): "The band who remind me most of the Genesis magic."
UK Prog Newsletter: "What's unique here are the vocals, so very similar to those of a young Peter Gabriel"
ECHO-News UK: "It's like a time-machine for those who used to go to concerts back in the 70s and want to feel the same vibes nowadays"
