The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway

The Musical Box, the only band in the world to obtain the performing rights and access to the full original archives for 'The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway' from Peter Gabriel and Genesis, will perform four shows in the UK in March.

The critically acclaimed production has been performed with great success in some of the most prestigious venues in the world, such as London's Royal Albert Hall and the Olympia in Paris. In 2005, Phil Collins joined the band on stage in Geneva, Peter Gabriel takes his children to the shows and Steve Hackett has joined them onstage on more than one occasion.

Collins once said: "I watched and listened. They played that stuff better than we ever did."

One of the very first Rock Operas in history, 'The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway' was released as a double album in 1974. The tour that followed was a ground-breaking theatrical production, which The Musical Box reproduces in its entirety in painstaking detail. The show is supported by over 1200 original slides, original costumes and props together with an arsenal of visual effects and pyrotechnics.

The UK dates are:

Tue 13th March Bristol Colston Hall
Wed 14th March Glasgow Clyde Auditorium
Thu 15th March Manchester O2 Apollo
Fri 16th March London HMV Apollo

The Musical Box version of The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway debuted in Montreal in October 2000, more than 25 years after the last Genesis performance with Peter Gabriel; the show was sold out and has been going around the world ever since.

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
