The Watch – Selling England By The Pound Concert

  • Friday | 15.04.11
  • 8.00pm
  • Band on the Wall, Manchester
  • £12.81 Gene...

Often compared to Genesis at their peak, Italy’s foremost progressive rock band perform that band’s classic album, Selling England By The Pound, plus their own songs.

One of prog rock new shining stars, founding member Simone Rossetti‘s vocal style is not dissimilar to Peter Gabriel‘s, it comes as no surprise to find the band is heavily influenced by Genesis at their 70s peak with elements of Spock’s Beard and Anglagard thrown in for good measure. For this very special concert they will be performing the classic Genisis album Selling England By The Pound live from beginning to end plus their own dazzling material. Expect outstanding, cerebral muscianship and one of their famously full-on incandescent live performances.
