The Musical Box
Fall 1972, the English rock group Genesis began a new tour to promote their fourth album, FOXTROT. At the beginning of 1973, the show had dramatically improved. The audiences had a first taste of the creativty and awesome stage presence that would be attributed to Genesis in the years to come.

The original concert was the first step in Genesis’ artistic process that would combine both music and theatre. With not much means and without radio and television support, Genesis had created a unique "universe" all their own. The cover of the "Genesis Live" album witnessed the dramatic atmosphere created by these very simple elements. Visual aspects aside, the main interest of the FOXTROT tour became the fact that a good portion of the songs on the set list were played live for the last time by Genesis.

The Musical Box is undertaking the reproduction of the original concert in painstaking detail to give people an illusion of being at the actual Genesis show. The visual reconstruction of the show was based on photos and slides of the original concerts, as well as articles from papers and magazines and information offered by numerous people who either worked on or attended the original Foxtrot tour. Couple that with the outstanding artistry and musicianship associated with The Musical Box and the audience is flawlessly transported back in time.

A unique chance to relive an historical event….
