I love Graig Blundell too. saw him on the previous hackett tour. Amazing.Here's Steve Hackett at The Royal Festival Hall w/ Orchestra on one of the greatest prog songs ever written by Genesis. I'm posting this to show you younger guys a very close approximation of what Genesis was really all about in their prime. This is Gary O'Toole on drums who is great. But, Phil was spectacular when he did it way back in the 70's. This song disappeared from their shows around Abacab Tour and surfaced only in piece in a Medley. I don't think this is planned for the Tour this year.
For that old Genesis vibe I prefer Hackett over the tribute bands (although not bad themselves though).
I do love how Daryll fits in so neatly with the later Genesis and has His own style with solo's, yet still keeping that Hackett vibe.
The medley was great to see in 2007.
