Steve and the band will perform the seminal Genesis album Selling England By The Pound in its entirety. Released in 1973, the album went to No. 3 in the UK charts, has been described as 'the definitive Genesis album.' It includes firm favourites such as Dancing with the Moonlit Knight, Firth of Fifth, Cinema Show and, of course, I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe). Other favourite classic Genesis tracks will also feature in the show.
The Palais Theatre (originally Palais Pictures) is an historic Picture Palace located in the Melbourne suburb of St Kilda. Replacing an earlier cinema of the same name destroyed in a fire, the new theatre, designed by Henry Eli White opened in 1927. With a capacity of nearly 3,000 people, it is the largest seated theatre in Australia.
It is one of the early 20th century picture palaces to survive in Australia, and is included on the Victorian Heritage Register. It is a major local landmark and an important part of the early 20th century development of the St Kilda beach foreshore as an entertainment precinct.
