Genesis concert chronology

The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway Tour[1][2] was a North American and European concert tour by English rock band Genesis. It began on November 1974 in Chicago, ended on 22 May 1975 in Besançon, France, and promoted their 1974 concept album of the same name. At each show, the album was played in its entirety, with one or two older songs as encores. The group's final tour with singer and cofounder Peter Gabriel, it was marked by extensive theatricality, with multiple costumes worn by Gabriel, three backdrop screens that displayed 1,450 slides from eight projectors, laser lighting, and practical effects.

"Phil Collins hated the 'slipperman' outfit," Gabriel admitted to Mark Blake. "In fact, the whole band did, especially the fact that it had these huge inflatable testicles… But I was acting out a character and the audience were getting off on it. I was the interpreter between the band and the audience. Actually, Phil always appreciated that, but I don't think the others always did."[3]
