Genesis: 3/1/1987

Genesis_3-1-87

I don’t remember a whole lot about this concert. I don’t even recall who it was I went with. I do remember not being very impressed with the show. We had seats in the upper deck way in the back, and Genesis was not able to connect with a stadium crowd, in my humble opinion. I remember them opening with “Mama,” which was good, but then as I watched the ants mill about on stage, and had to sit through a plethora of their poppy songs, I lost interest rapidly. I did manage to make it through the entire show, in spite of it all.

Peter Gabriel solo was way better in concert than Genesis with Phil Collins at the helm. But that’s just my opinion.

Anyway, I found the setlist online, so here it is. Really, that’s about all I have to share on this show. Rock on!
