Hi there


So you're another one who might have been on our coach to Paris in '87 eh? I think we should try and organise a reunion for those of us who participated in MGP trips. What do you think?

I was on that trip as well - the only indoor concert on the IT European tour. I got right down the front at the Bercy Arena.

I remember "Walk Like An Egyptian" on the PA before the concert and everyone singing and whistling.

Also, bumped into Tony Banks in Notre Dam on the afternoon of the gig - along with several dozen other Genesis fans. I got my (lovely) ticket autographed (as mentioned in another thread somewhere). Poor Tony just wanted to be out for a quiet walk taking photos grin

Fabulous concert though.......

.......then afterwards, some wally on the trip was moaning that there "wasn't any 12-string guitar" grin

Did the MGP trip to Paris in 1987 also.

Ditto - I'm sure that I remember you there with your Mum (is that right?).


Quote:
Don't know how i managed to do all those gigs in 1982, seeing as i was a poor student nurse at the time huh

I know - how did we afford it? I'm convinced that tickets were cheaper in real terms back then.

These days 75 or 100 for tickets just puts me right off.

I think it was definitely a case of ..... "It's Genesis, nothing comes before Genesis" grin

Definitely!!

Hi there



Tickets were definitely cheaper back then. Even as a "penniless" student I was able to go to the following gigs on the '82 tour...


Hamburg
Birmingham (both nights)
Deeside
Milton Keynes


Wish I had seen more but I more than made up for it on later tours but that is another story!

Found this photo up my Mum's last week when I was scanning some photos for her. It's of the '81 MGP trip.

I saw Genesis in late August of '82 on the TSL tour, after having seen them the previous December on the Abacab tour. The August of '82 show was the "infamous" Jarry park concert in Montreal. What a mess.... The show itself was great, with the reinsertion of Supper's ready in the setlist for the first time in 5 years, and the WOTS medley as the encore (done 6 years before on the ATOTT tour).

However, upon exiting the stadium, we were greeted by the Montreal police riot squad in full gear. Oh, and did I fail to mention that some genious decided to only open a few gates? I remember jumping over one of the fences to get out of there. If I tried to do that today, I would probably need 1 week to recover but at 19-20 years of age, it just seemed like a quick and easy way to not get my head bashed in by a baton!

Ahhhh memories.....

Hi guys,

Just read this thread for the first time. I went to Hamburg, Birmingham, Leeds and MK on this tour. Great memories of Hamburg especially when Phil announced in German "this next song is ten years old tonight, this is Supper's Ready." Also some guy on our bus bought a crate of liebfraumilch in the afternoon and was comatose by the time we reached the stadium. One of the guys taped the show and gave me his address. As soon as I got home I sent him a couple of blank tapes so he could send me a copy of the recording. I'd completely forgotten about the MGP t-shirts. Mine sadly disintegrated many years ago.

Alanh - if you're ever in Holmfirth for a Hackett show I'll say hello.
