The Musical Box, internationally acclaimed for its historical re-enactment of early Genesis' works, is coming to the UK to perform The Black Show, a re-imagining of their performance of Selling England by the Pound, featuring huge songs from all of the early albums. The emblematic 1974 show, originally only ever seen in America, allowed Genesis and Peter Gabriel to attain rockstar status, enjoying to this day a cult following from nostalgic and young music lovers alike.
 
With Peter Gabriel's famous theatrics and Genesis' unmistakable musicianship, the band's artistry would produce some of the most distinct images and sounds of the progressive rock era, such as the mythic, 23 minutes long Supper's Ready, considered to be one of the most intense live music experiences ever created.
 
Exclusively licensed by Peter Gabriel and Genesis, The Musical Box has performed for more than a million spectators worldwide in some of the most prestigious venues such as the London Royal Albert Hall, and had the privilege of receiving Phil Collins and Steve Hackett from Genesis as performing guests. With its quest for authenticity, The Musical Box is often cited as the best interpretation group in the world, proving the relevance of performing contemporary songs.
