About Genesis Project

The Dutch band “Genesis Project” exists for over more than 20 years. Over the years this enthousiastic team performed several Genesis shows, with great detail and authentic sound.

Currently Genesis Project performs the “Seconds Out” tour from 1976. This is the live tour where drummer Phil Collins became the lead singer, taking the place of Peter Gabriel, who left the band.

Like Genesis did, Genesis Project works with 2 drummers. That is bombastic! The songs are reproduced with great detail and respect for the original. Two drummers, bass pedals, fat guitar and keyboards garantee that.

Beautiful lights and smashing visual intensify the experience. We promise you an excellent evening, back in time, full of legendary symfonic rock.

From 2022 Genesis Project will also attend the Dutch theatres

What people say about Genesis Project

It is alwyas good the read what people say about us.

Excellent concert in De Boerderij. I think they performed the Lamb Lies Down on Broadway better than the original. The 2 encores "Watcher of the Skies" and "The Return of the Giant Hogweed" were fantastic. Good show. It was well travelling over from the UK for (900 miles round trip).

Excellent show this sunday @ Spirit of 66 Verviers. Thanx a lot for this good evening

Gisterenavond in de Boederij genoeten van jullie optreden. Had eerst geen zin om te gaan en ben nu blij dat ik er toch was. Ik kreeg de kriebels (in positieve zin) op mijn rug tijdens de Carpet Crawler

We stonden boven op het balkon in de Boerderij en konden het goed zien. Een lust voor oog en oor. Vooral het deel na de pauze sprak mij persoonlijk aan. Complex, symfonisch oftewel kriebels. En tja doe dit maar eens. Van boven was ook goed te zien wat er moest gebeuren op keyboards en drums. (zonder de anderen onder te waarderen overigens) Kortom, ik heb genoten!!!

Afgelopen zaterdag aanwezig in De Boerderij. Wederom genoten, om zo'n moeilijk album live te kunnen neerzetten moet je toch wel lef en klasse hebben.....en dat hebben jullie. Nog bedankt voor de heerlijke avond!

Excellent !

Apart from the superb performance of the Lamb, the performance of The Return of the Giant Hogweed was simply far much better than the guys of Transatlantic did on the High Voltage festival in London. And even though they had Steve Hackett on guitar, your performance was much more authentic. Especially the vocals were amazing. Neal Morse eat your heart out...

Geweldige avond. Met de perfecte afsluiter. Het was weer de moeite waard om meer dan 100 km te rijden.

Super Konzert! Freuen uns auf Seconds Out! Frank u. Silvia, Bad Bentheim

Geweldig concert gisteren in de Stenge, soms even met je ogen dicht, terug in de tijd, alsof het Genesis zelf is bedankt.
