Press Information: London 7 November 2006

Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford of the iconic band Genesis unveiled the dates for their first tour in 15 years. Turn It On Again - the tour, will see the band play a series of stadium concerts in Europe in the summer of 2007. Kicking off in the Olympic Stadium, Helsinki on 11 June, the tour will hit twelve different European countries, ending in Rome on 14 July. At a Pan-European press conference staged today at London's exclusive Mayfair hotel and hosted by comedian and lifelong Genesis fan, David Baddiel, the band took questions from international media about their reasons for reforming and thoughts on the tour.

European tour promoter, John Giddings, commented:
"It is a privilege to work with one of the greatest rock bands of all time, and to see their musical talent together again onstage will be incredible. The live shows are as famous as their music."

The "Turn It On Again" tour will be travelling to all the biggest stadiums as it treks across Europe in 2007 through Finland, Denmark, Switzerland, Austria, Hungary, Poland, Germany, France, Holland, UK, Monte Carlo and Italy. For all European tour dates, please go HERE.

Tickets will be on sale for UK dates on 24 November and for dates in Germany on 10 November. Other on-sale dates to be announced.

Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford will be joined on stage by long time Genesis sidemen, Chester Thompson on drums and Daryl Steurmer on guitar. Two of the world's greatest show technicians, award-winning lighting designer Patrick Woodroffe and acclaimed set designer Mark Fisher are working on plans for the 2007 Genesis tour.

Genesis have sold over 130 million albums, it is one of a small elite of British bands who have achieved global success and sustained it over four decades. Genesis was formed in 1966 by Tony Banks, Peter Gabriel, Mike Rutherford and Anthony Phillips, while still at school, but its most successful incarnation was the late 70's early 80's line-up of Phil Collins taking on lead vocals and sharing songwriting, with Rutherford and Banks. The Duke album topped the UK charts in 1980 with the hit single, Turn It On Again monopolising the airwaves. In 1987, Genesis played sold out stadium shows across the globe, including four consecutive Wembley Stadiums.

To coincide with the Genesis tour, EMI Records will be re-issuing 14 Genesis studio albums in three stages during 2007. All the releases will be SACD/DVD double disc sets featuring newly re-mastered 5.1 surround sound and stereo mixes. The release schedule is as follows:

March 2007: A Trick Of The Tail (1976), Wind & Wuthering (1977), …And Then There Were Three…(1978), Duke (1980) Abacab (1981)

June/July 2007: Genesis(1983), Invisible Touch(1986), We Can't Dance (1991), Calling All Stations(1997)

Late 2007/Early 2008: Trespass (1970), Nursery Cryme (1971), Foxtrot (1972 ), Selling England By The Pound (1973), The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway(1974)

Advent expand

We're pleased to announce that the band has augmented to include its two newest talented members:

guitarist Greg Katona,

and Brett Bottomley on bass and Chapman Stick®.

Greg is known for his work w/ the Genesis tribute band, FOXTROT ( http://foxtrottheband.com/ ) and is also a guitar instructor at Monmouth Academy of the Musical Arts in Marlboro, New Jersey. He will be joining guitarist Alan Benjamin in creating the wonderful moods and complex arrangements of both the debut cd and Cantus Firmus.

Brett has an extensive jazz background and has attended the Berklee College of music. With Brett, and drummer Drew Siciliano (whose jazz background is also quite broad), Advent's newly formed rhythm section will no doubt be explosive, but it will also add a very appropriate touch of class that can only come from the likes of Brett and Drew.

More info on Greg may be found at Advent's bio page:
http://www.adventmusic.net/bio.html (and that link will also be updated in the near future to include Brett's bio - so, check back for that soon).

Congratulations to these two fine gentlemen, who have now made Advent a six-piece (w/o biscuit, as my wife likes to say...).

We're very glad to have them onboard.

 
Stairway to Heaven

Cindy Pearlman of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that comedian Jack Black tried to use LED ZEPPELIN's most famous song title, "Stairway to Heaven", in his new movie "Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny". Permission was granted by the band — but after the scene was filmed, the ZEPPELIN members demanded to pull their song title from the gag.

The scene is in a mock Rock and Roll Hall of Fame set in California. The deal was: All rock groups depicted in this faked museum had to give permission to use their name, likeness, music and/or song titles. Black and his "D" partner Kyle Gass have a moment when they climb a huge staircase with a flashing neon sign "Stairway to Heaven."

"THE BEATLES said yes to having their image in the scene. Many groups said no problem," says "D" director Liam Lynch. "ZEPPELIN was a problem. They gave us permission and withdrew it after we filmed the scene with a huge 'Stairway to Heaven.' They said no and we had to re-shoot that part of the movie."

"We ended up calling the staircase 'Guitarway to Heaven,' " says Lynch. "And we were like f--- you. I don't really want to get into it more. We also had problems with the SEX PISTOLS."

For his part, Black isn't upset with the rock legends. "We liked 'Guitarway to Heaven.' It sounded a little dumber, which made me happy," says the comic rocker.
