Genesis tribute band The Musical Box (name taken from a 1971 song) has toured the world with their show. Formed in 1993 in Montreal on the 20th anniversary of the album Selling England by the Pound. On stage they recreate musically and visually the shows Genesis did in the 1970s. Every last detail has been thought of right down to the costumes. The tribute band has had help from the members of Genesis in that they were given copies of the 1,200 slides they used in the Lamb Lies Down on Broadway shows and the album master tapes so they could recreate the music exactly as it was originally played.
Since 2001 the band has gotten bigger and bigger. Due to their popularity they have played shows across North America, Europe and South America. In 2010 the band took a “break”, but they are back together and going strong.
Not only will the show in Montreal be the latest on the tour, but it will be special in that there will be an exclusive presentation before the show of “Counting Out Time”, which is a documentary of The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway from 1975 that features unpublished clips and exclusive interviews. A must for fans of the two bands.
