THE MUSICAL BOX: SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND | The Black Show | The Garde Arts Center April 7th | 8PM
The internationally acclaimed Canadian band, The Musical Box - the only band officially licensed by Genesis and Peter Gabriel - known for its near-perfect theatrical recreations of early Genesis' work, is coming to the Garde for the first time to perform Selling England by the Pound (the Black Show) , the emblematic 1974 performance that made Genesis and Peter Gabriel attain rock star status. The Musical Box has achieved a cult-like following from nostalgic and young music lovers alike for their concert staging using the same instruments and equipment used by Genesis during the ‘70’s, with exact replicas of Peter Gabriel’s costumes, stage props and slide projections.
"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
