G2 – Definitive Genesis/Richard Haines Charity Weekend Update – April 2012

A quick update by the organiser on the Charterhouse gigs last weekend – there were so many supporting emails from people who came and from those who couldn’t come – so it seems worth reporting back on how it all went.

“We were 3/4  full on Friday and pretty much sold out on Saturday, resulting in an amazing atmosphere in the hall. The ‘unplugged’ set was superb with a really lively Q&A to follow with some great questions from the audience …

The auction was first class – culminating on Saturday when we sold the Platinum Award from Tony Banks for £740! Nearly £3k from the auction and best part of £1000 in the door collection. Our hope is that we finally give £8000+ to Shooting Star CHASE – we are still waiting for figures to come in and will let you know final figures.

A few photo highlights below – courtesy of Richard Haines and his www.genesispictures.co.uk online biz – do take a look (Quote CHASE to give 20% of any purchase to the charity). Great response to his picture display at the gigs and he kindly donated the ‘flower’ to the auction (went for £280!!). Thanks Richard.”

Genesis Fund-Raising Weekend Success – April 2012

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Richard donated one of his Genesis Photographs (signed, mounted and framed) to the Shooting Star CHASE Childrens Charity Auction at the G2 – Definitive Genesis concert held at Charterhouse School on 14th April and it was sold for £280! Lots of interest shown in the exhibition of the  exclusive photographs of Genesis in the early 70s from the hundreds of Genesis/G2 fans.

Richard also took some photographs of G2 in concert – see the link below:

Exclusive Genesis Photographs – Exhibition at Charterhouse Charity Weekend

 

Genesis-3-EDIT-41.59

I was commissioned to take photographs of Genesis in 1974 at Headley Grange in Hampshire where they were writing and rehearsing their album The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. These phoptographs have laid dormant in my collection until recently when I decided to post them onto my website www.GenesisPictures.co.uk so they could be shared.
This has led to me being invited to put on an exhibition of over twenty of these photographs at Charterhouse School, where Peter Gabriel, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks went to school and formed the band Genesis originally.

Here are the details from the promoters of the concerts and auction being held this weekend 13th and 14th April in aid of Shooting Star CHASE Children’s Charity:

• Unpublished 1970s’ picture display … loads of interest in Richard Haines unique unpublished photo collection. 20% of the proceeds will be donated to our charity – check them out here: www.genesispictures.co.uk.
