The Watch are back from autumn 2024 with a brand new show, celebrating the 50th anniversary of 1974’s Genesis masterpiece The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway.
Each of the double concept album songs will be performed on stage. Brief snippets of narrative will help the listener unravel the mysteries at the heart of the story.
