    Who is playing bass for this tour, I don't recognize who it is from the video.
    I did a search online to see the current lineup and I can't find anything.
    I thought it might be Lee Pomeroy but it's too hard to tell.

    Looking forward to seeing this show on 24 Sept in Manchester at the Apollo.
    On the same night Genesis will be playing at the Arena - about 1.5miles away!!!

    Steve should tour with The Flower Kings...make it a double bill. Then both Roine and Jonas could do double duty.

    That is a bit weired, there must be many who wanted to see both and now can't. It would be Hackett for me though.

    But Roine and Jonas played the same role in Steve's band.

    That's true. But why not have both play with Hackett together. Roine could play acoustic guitar and bass and Jonas just bass...unless maybe he plays guitar too. The Flower Kings could open for Hackett. Or like Opeth and Porcupine Tree did a few years ago as a double bill...they could alternate who opens. It was just a thought

    ...and Nad on that! Steve needs to borrow the sign my sister saw - while hiking around the globe - outside a youth hostel in Tasmania, reading "No more Swedes, p**s off!"

    I'll be seeing Steve at the Palladium on 21 Sept - my first concert since Feb 2020.

    Is there a Surrender of Silence section to this tour or is it just Genesis songs?
    No matter what anyone says, you are the decider of how you will listen to music.

    Steve traditionally does half Steve songs half Genesis, don't see why he would change it up this time around.

    The setlist I saw from opening night had two songs from Surrender Of Silence, three older songs from his catalogue, and then the Seconds Out album in full (I believe that includes the full versions of stuff like The Musical Box, etc.)

    It's a bit confusing here in the US, because Steve's tour was cut short due to the pandemic, just as he was going to perform the Selling England/Spectral mornings tour.
    I just checked the April 2022 show in Clearwater, Florida, and they still have it billed as the Selling England/Spectral morning show, with details describing the setlist as with a few songs from Seconds Out.

    I had totally forgot that I had a ticket for this one, I bought it so long ago. I’ll be at The Palladium though, so that’s something to look forward to.

    His new record is pretty great! This should be a cracking tour.

    Did they do the version of I Know What I Like that included bits from older pieces like Stagnation, etc.?

    Only one week left for the start of the Genesis Last Domino tour, I wonder how Phil is feeling and the others after a long wait...

    I’ll answer that after Friday! Somehow I doubt it as that was the section Phil always used to do his tambourine thing, and I doubt Nad would do the same!!

    Saw him in Liverpool a few days ago. An excellent gig as always.
    Some tracks were done as flawless copies, whilst others had slightly different arrangements.
    Superb musicianship as always.
    The day following the gig I was passing nearby the venue. Hackett must have been staying nearby as he was walking down the road.
    I overheard him on the phone telling someone about "playing Cinema Show"... No shit! I doubt it was Tony Banks....!

    Here is a photo of the gig (not sure how to display it full sized) - it looks identical to the Seconds Out cover:

    I still can't see the photo, but I don't care because I'm now caught up in exploring that Liverpool site! Those videos of life 120 years ago are incredible, and it's amazing to see what life looked like there for my grandmother who would have been a baby and toddler at that time. She moved to Canada aged 19 and lived to 102, and never lost her accent.
