THE WATCH is a 5 piece band from Milan. Their music is inspired by classic 70’s style prog-rock. The first album is called “Ghost” released in 2001, than followed “Vacuum” in 2004 and “Primitive” in 2007. Check the discography section to get some musical excerpts from each album. In 2009 the band released its first live album “The Watch live”. Melodies and energy are the main features of The Watch music and live performances are one the strongest characteristics of the band, all the band’s energy and inspiration come out expressly when on stage, where it clearly appears how much they believe in what they do. The line up has changed several times through the years, only Simone Rossetti, founder and composer of the band is still there from the very beginning… according to Simone’s words nowadays the band has the best line up ever !
From 2009 The Watch are bringing on stage shows focused on Genesis albums with the attempt of blending great Genesis classic albums from the 70ies with their own music. Counting on Simone’s voice similarity to Peter Gabriel’s one, this formula has worked very well and allowed the band to play in big stages, widening their audience and growing in number of fans. Now The Watch are considered one of the most representative bands on the actual prog scene worldwide and an example of what could have become prog-rock music if big prog rock names of the 70ies hadn’t split or changed style of music, evolving from the 70ies to nowdays.
For the 2017 European Tour, The Watch will be playing the "Foxtrot" album in its' entirety, performed live for the first time !! No other group manages to capture the adventurousness and electricity of Genesis in their pioneering days with quite such raw emotion.The most dramatic Gabrielesque vocals and the all-round instrumental excellence of the band ensure a special tour not to be missed !
