The Musical Box
Cohen & Grigsby TRUST PRESENTS Series

In the autumn of 1973, the concept of a rock show was redefined by Genesis, touring Europe and North America to promote the release of their fifth album, Selling England by the Pound. Both the theatrical imagination of Peter Gabriel and the intricacy and intensity of Genesis' music reached their apexes and were enhanced by surrealistic sets and special visual effects, leaving audiences spellbound. For what proved to be one of the first-ever multimedia performances, Selling England by the Pound remains a vivid memory for those privileged to have attended it.

Now, officially licensed by Genesis and Peter Gabriel, The Musical Box reproduces the 1973 classic in painstaking detail. The show’s quality is a result of years of work by musicians, technicians, and collectors who used hundreds of photos and slides of the original concerts, videos, amateur films, newspaper and magazine articles, and information offered by numerous people who worked on or attended the Genesis shows 40 years ago. These sources allowed for the masks, costumes, make-up, accessories, sets, lighting design, special effects, choreography, and musical presentation to be meticulously duplicated, including the use of the instruments that characterized the Genesis sound – the Mellotron, Hammond organ, Leslie cabinets, Hohner Pianet, Rickenbacker double-neck guitars, bass pedals, and more.
