Welcome to The Waiting Room - the Genesis web-fanzine featuring all the news, reviews, interviews and more concerning Genesis and related projects - first, a word from the creators of TWR...


WORDS FROM THE EDITING SUITE….

Hello and welcome to yet another edition of TWR. Your editor has now been fully vaccinated and is raring to go once more!

Not a great deal of news to share right now, Lockdown etc is still playing havoc with things but even so activity is returning.

Genesis have announced their first US shows since 2007 with a run of gigs on the East Coast in November/December of this year much to the delight of American fans...at least until they saw the ticket prices! With a UK and US tour now announced, it only remains to see what further shows the band may have in store but a European leg sometime next year looks highly likely. Whether dates further afield will be proposed remains to be seen but demand to see the band is high as the speed with which tickets for all of these gigs sold proved.

Steve Hackett is at work on a new rock album as well as trying to reschedule a backlog of shows which have had to be postponed due to the Pandemic. It looks likely that Steve's return to the concert stage will be in the UK this September/October and those months look like being busy ones with both Steve and Genesis on the road in the UK - plenty for TWR to write about I guess!

Ray Wilson has also been busy. He managed to put on some socially distanced gigs before restrictions prevented these. His new album; The Weight Of Man is due to be released on 3rd September.

Anthony Phillips has been at work on yet more library projects and there is talk of a third Archive Collection release - assuming the Listening Panel can safely reconvene to select the tracks that is!

And that's about it for news for this one folks. Enjoy the rest of this edition and stay safe!
