Genesis Live at Parc Des Princes, Paris, France - 30th June 2007

It's the second chance (well, third counting the "virtual" Düsseldorf gig at the Vue cinema in Cambridge) to catch the legendary Genesis, live at the Parc Des Princes in Paris. There are maybe a couple more mistakes, and the odd technical gremlin in the sound system, but the band still sound fantastic and the crowd is massively more involved and lively than at Helsinki. This, more than anything, makes it an even better gig. There's obviously something about Paris: the superb "Seconds Out" was recorded in Paris in '76/'77, and even other bands like Muse seem to do better here. There's also the advantage that it gets dark enough for the light show at around 9pm (as opposed to never in Helsinki), so the other aspect of the band's famous stage show is better appreciated.
