Yep, that would be great! But then of course it would be billed as such, and everyone would be expecting that...but I don't know if they could really do that, ALOT of Genesis fans aren't even of that era, they came along in the early 80s...like me for instance. My PG era knowledge is more retroactive, I was too young when he was on board to really be a fan, more just heard it in the house and then when I was a teen remembered those songs that my parents played type of thing.


As for the current show....there was definitely no shortage of Phil on drums! I'll be honest, I think he's a very good drummer, but you know what? Chester is just absolutely one of the greats imo. I know it must be hard for a drummer like Phil to give it up completely (as my son who drums pointed out while we watched) but there were a few songs where Phil would go back and start beating on his kit for no real apparent reason, I mean, it didn't add a whole lot to the song, other than to remind us that he used to be the drummer. lol. Not a bad thing, maybe just a bit repetitive and predictable. The drum battle was super cool though, and the rest of the band was right on time to jump in on......well I won't spoil it

Damn the rain

In The Cage
Los Endos

No encore because of rain
Walking halfway back to the car (which seems like a mile) and realizing you lost your phone, only to go back (in the rain) to try & find it, and finding it back by your seat in the Bowl, priceless

I hope we try & go again tonite. Fitz - where are you?!?!

At home burying my Genesis sorrows in a steaming cup of hot cocao!

It was just one of those nights where everything that could go wrong, went wrong. One thing after another.

We ended up walking up to our seats about 9:15 - 9:20 (due to my ONE and HUGE mistake of telling my Dad to get off at Cahuenga instead of Highland, which basically cost us the whole night ). As we passed the ticket gate and were walking up, they were in the middle of "Home By The Sea". You should've seen the absolute crushed look on my Dad's face. I felt so bad. My Mom and Dad went to get a couple drinks and I went to our seats. I walked into the arena just as they were going into "Second Home By The Sea".

Then there was a seriously fat, fat, obese woman and her 10 year-old-son sitting at the end of our row, so there wasn't enough room for my Mom, Dad and I, even after the super drunk people to my left schooched over as far as possible. The obese woman was pissed at my Dad (and other people b/c she had to keep getting up to let people in and out) and was giving my Dad a really hard time, so he just ended up just leaving our seats and watching the rest of the show from the main walkway. One of the ushers told him that they've been having a lot of problems like that lately, with really obese people taking up too much space on the benches.

It was just one of those nights.

All I wanted, ALL I WANTED, was to have this Father-Son moment and hear "The Carpet Crawlers" together. "Lamb Lies Down . . . " came out the year I was born and I've heard my Dad play "Carpet Crawlers" so many times it's not even funny . . . that whole album, and especially that song, is the soundtrack to my childhood.

So the obese woman left early due to the rain, so I went and got my Dad and brought him back to sit with us. Then I told him he was going to absolutely love the last song, that it was really cool.

And then it just ended and he turns to me puzzled and says, "You really wanted me to hear "Invisible Touch"??"

Nooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!

I HATE Invisible Touch! My Dad hates Invisible Touch! All I wanted was my Father-Son moment to "The Carpet Crawlers", and instead I got Invisible Fucking Touch!!

Just one of those nights.

From what I did see of the show, it was really good and I liked it. And to be optimistic:

The drum duet into Los Endos was and possibly worth the price of admission on its own!

First off

OMG, I feel so bad. I had hoped the call I made to you would get you back to the bowl & in time. You should have called back and we would have stayed on until you got there or the show started, whichever was first. It started at about 8:20pm.
You know you missed In The Cage, which was incredible and one of my favorite songs. That's pretty much when it started raining, and we had been kicked out of our "seats" a few times by this point. We stood between FGHJK and the next tier for it, and then found seats later in section J (actual seats, not a bench!). I couldn't frickin' believe it rained. I didn't even know there was any chance. I was wearing hubby's jacket with a hood, but this jacket was not waterproof

I really wanted to hear Carpet Crawlers as well, and I told hubby as we were leaving how disappointed you were going to be cuz I knew that was your favorite song. I was disappointed that we were shortchanged an encore, but you could tell they were having technical problems & weren't prepared for the rain. Tony went under the keyboards during the last song, and apparently just gave up. You could see Phil looking at him wondering what happened. During Land Of Confusion when they were showing the audience up on the screen, we saw our friend run into the cameraperson and got on the screen!

Los Endos I wonder what a whole version of Squonk live would sound like

We have some friends that went to the final/Saturday show, but we haven't heard from them yet. We contemplated going again, but just couldn't stand to be so far back, especially for a band we care about/like. I ended up going to see Joshua Tree play at Cal Lutheran, hubby stayed home. He knew his friend might be able to sneak him in at the Bowl, and possibly down low, but just didn't feel up to it. The show itself seemed uneven, going from older material to newer material - just didn't flow right. I can't stand newer stuff, so I'm with you on the Invisible Touch hatred. Same for 'Domino' (?) Is that the one where Phil's big head was on the screen, kinda like The Wizard of Oz? And apparently they have this cool stage set-up, but it never seemed to kick in and used. What a shame. They were always known for their lighting too.

If I could have gotten a good cheap ticket, I probably would have gone, just to see In The Cage again

One more thing. My bad luck came after the show. We got out of the venue rather quickly, and were headed back to our car, which is a good walk away in the residential area past Cahuenga. So we get halfway there, and I realize I don't have my cellphone So we venture back into the bowl. Everyone in the tunnel & by the bowl kept calling us salmon (going upstream). We get back inside and it's empty except for the ushers, and we get near our seats & find my phone. I was so tired & wet. We got to the car and peeled off our layers of wet clothing, scarf, gloves,... What a night.

I hope we get to meet another time & under better circumstances

Do you mean CDs from the current tour? I thought the song selection was rather odd. Yes, some old some newer, but it didn't fit together as a "set". I only wanted to hear old stuff, so hearing something like Domino and You're No Son Of Mine (or whatever that's called) is like nails on a chalkboard
