The Carpet Crawlers (Genesis Tribute – 1970-1982)

Saturday 23, October 2010
8:00 PM

Tickets £17, Concessions £

It’s the late ‘60’s and pop superstar of the time, Jonathan King was on a return visit to Charterhouse when handed a demo tape by a group of 16 year olds from the school.

King liked what he heard, named them Genesis, recorded an album called “From Genesis To Revelation” released in March 1969. The album was a flop, King and the band went their separate ways and in the following year Genesis released their 2nd album “Trespass” to much acclaim from the normally highly critical British music press.

Classic album after classic album followed,”Nursery Cryme”, “Foxtrot,” “Selling England By The Pound” and the infamous concept album “The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway”.

In addition to their album success Genesis were making a name for themselves as one of the best live acts in the world, musically brilliant, fabulous light shows and lead singer Peter Gabriel putting on an array of costumes in a theatrical performance rarely seen in a rock show before this time!

In May 1975 Peter Gabriel shocked the music world and broke Genesis fans hearts worldwide by leaving to persue his own solo career, Phil Collins stepped out from behind the drums to take over the Genesis lead mantle and the band simply went from strength to strength with highly successful albums “Trick Of The Tail”, Wind & Wuthering and the fabulous live album “Seconds Out”. Successive World tours put them into the supergroup status, and the years of stadium tours around the world lay ahead.

This is the first night of The Carpet Crawlers autumn tour of mainland Europe, they will be performing music taken from the early theatrical Gabriel years with masks & costumes to a smattering of the awe inspiring drum duets of their stadium shows of the early ‘80’s.

Tracks such as The Musical Box, The Knife, Suppers Ready, Cinema Show, Firth Of Fifth, Lamb Lies Down On Broadway, The Carpet Crawlers, Los Endos, the list just goes on and on!
