Plus Special Guests
The Carpet Crawlers, the ultimate Genesis tribute band will be playing at The O2 Academy in Liverpool on Saturday the 18th of October to celebrate the 40th anniversary of The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, the last Genesis album to feature their original singer Peter Gabriel. The concept of the long player was to tell the story of a Puerto Rican juvenile delinquent who lives in New York City, incorporating psychological ideas and satirical illusions, which together helped the album reach number 10 in the UK Album Chart, with a stunning live show accompanying the LP.
The Carpet Crawlers reenactment of the show is said to be unforgettable, as weird and wonderful costumes from the original performance, powerful acting and of course classic music tell the albums story in all the detail Genesis would have given. The album received widespread critical acclaim and was charted in many different music magazines for various accomplishments, with one track, ‘The Carpet Crawlers’ being where this tribute act takes their name from.
The Carpet Crawlers is lead by front man Brian Cummins, who is “not acting, he is Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins” in this live performance that is being brought to Liverpool’s O2 Academy on the 18th of October. With a five-piece live band, an audio and visual effect crew and an aesthetic that will leave you open-mouthed, this is a show you don’t want to miss.
