I’m a big fan of (early) Genesis and I saw Steve play with them in this very venue way back in 1977 ! I had seen him twice in recent years, but the chance to see him reprise one of my favourite ever albums, the live Genesis double LP ‘Seconds Out’, was far too good to miss. And what an enjoyable trip down memory lane this was.

With only one original band member this was never going to be as good as the real thing, but at least better (a bit) than a tribute band. And his band did a very good job. Steve though is the focus of the night, allowed to let his unique guitar lines take centre stage. I was less interested in his short set of solo material before the end-to-end Seconds Out. Never did much for me. But to sing along with all the Genesis songs like a teenager again was a treat.
