Genesis Endorsed The Musical Box To Perform In Australia

Just as Steve Hackett leaves Australia a few Genesis production is coming to town.

 

The Musical Box is a Genesis tribute endorsed by Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel.

“They’re not a tribute band, they have taken a period and are faithfully reproducing it in the same way that someone would do a theatrical production. The Musical Box play it better than we did!” Collins said in a statement.

Original Genesis lead singer Peter Gabriel is also a fan. “I saw them in Bristol with my children so they could see what their father did back then. I was really impressed by the production quality and the attention to detail,” he said.

The Musical Box is from Montreal, Canada. The band took its name from a 1971 track from the Genesis album ‘Nursery Cryme’.

The 2018 tour of Australia and New Zealand will focus on a complete performance of the 1973 Genesis album ‘Selling England By The Pound’.

Prince Honored With New Pantone Colour

Music icon Prince has been posthumously honoured with his own custom shade of purple by officials at the Pantone Color Institute.

 

Prince was often referred to as the “Purple One” thanks to his love of the composite colour, and now global industry experts at Pantone have created the Love Symbol #2 in his memory.

The new hue was inspired by the shade used for his custom-made, signature Yamaha purple piano, which he had planned to take on tour before his shock death in April, 2016.

“The colour purple was synonymous with who Prince was and will always be,” explains Troy Carter, the Entertainment Advisor to the singer’s estate. “This is an incredible way for his legacy to live on forever.”
