Genesis Turn It On Again Tour, Linz, Gugl Stadium, 19 June 2007

Ok, that doesn’t fit exactly this site’s subject, but: Genesis are cult and Genesis had their heydays in the 70s and 80s, oh and they are one of my favorite bands by the way. That’s why I decided to attend their concert in Linz with my wife when I heard that they would play there on their Turn It On Again Tour. Fortunately AtariBuff had a ticket as well, so we met and held a Mini AustroCon ;)

The 19th June 2007 was a hot summer day, turning into a gentle evening, just perfect for an open air. 30,000 people thought the same, so the vibes were fantastic. We had a superb place just inside the foremost wave breaker – not too far from the stage, but no jostling at all. Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks, Chester Thompson and Daryl Stuermer played a sensational two and a half hour show. Their performance was supported by a giant video wall behind the stage that produced a unique atmosphere for each song. Phil is a great entertainer as well, we had many laughs. This was certainly one of the very best concerts I ever saw!
