I saw them live back in the day.

[@349735,onestarrynight] Same here, saw it once at Earl's Court in August 1980 and again in June 1981, the night before one of my O-Levels!

My first partner (a few years older than me) saw them do Dark Side at the Rainbow in '72... and is also briefly visible in the Ziggy Stardust film as one of the over-excited teenage girls near the front.
[@634071,TheThinker] i saw them at the Nassau colosseum in New York..
I think they did three or four shows and then went out to the west coast..

[@349735,onestarrynight] Heh, when you said "northeast" I thought you meant the northeast of England... as there used to be quite a prog scene around that part of the world, albeit neither Pink Floyd nor Genesis.

Yes, they originally did seven nights in LA, five in NY, then six in London.

Then in 1981 they did eight in Dortmund, Germany, and another five in London.  I actually thought it was just five in each venue but Wiki tells me otherwise:–81)#Tour_dates

[@6602,helenS] I think for me it's the organ chord progression that starts just before "I've been waiting here for so long" that does it for me... sends the hairs up on the back of my neck every time.

[@6602,helenS] Yes, from Nursery Cryme through to Seconds Out - he left the band while the latter was being mixed.
