Fugg off the lot of yeh.....posing b@stards rolleyes

embarassed

I had two tickets one for each night of that tour at The Liverpool Empire....

My very short career in the Merchant Navy meant I missed the gigs....

Haunts me to this day... No really it haunts me

Best wishes

My best mate worked as an usher at Birmingham Odeon so she got mine! How lucky was I?!! I remember phoning her from the college public telephone to hear she'd got tickets. I had a massive, beaming grin on my face for the reast of the afternoon! grin

After the gig she'd got someone to get Steve Hackett to sign a ticket for me, which is now framed in the collage on my wall. grin


Another great story! smiley

Some great stories about buying tickets here!

Unfortunately, I was too young to understand about gigs back then - but I do remember Duke being released in 1980 & thinking "It's not as good as the other covers!!" grin

Duke also was the first Genesis album that my big Genesis fan brother did not buy! undecided However - my other brother did have a copy - so all was not lost!! grin

Hope this helps the memory banks for some.

One interesting aspect of this tour pertains to the US leg where all 3 were selling tickets at the box office for the show in LA. How would one react walking up to a ticket window and having Tony Banks asking "where do you want to sit?.

Well I would react with the phrase...

"On a pile of your money with some postal sacks handy" wink

Seriously though that must have been so freaking cool..... cool

We have seen photos of Genesis in these ticket offices in the USA.

I think it might have been on Simon Funnel's site?

It is on google somewhere.

Most people would have been likely to have responded "Next to you"! Until the "Together & Apart" docu, anyway! grin
