For over 20 years, Michel Colin has humbly held the reigns as Front of House Engineer for Phil Collins and Genesis. While his modesty is pronounced, so is his talent for ensuring superb mixes and the best live sound every night on tour.
Front of House magazine revisits Michel’s work on the Genesis The Last Domino? Tour. The US tour dates were supported by L-Acoustics Certified Provider Unreal Systems and UK tour dates were supported by Britannia Row. Colin’s longstanding relationship with the pioneers of progressive rock continues to this day. With every soundcheck and EQ adjustment, he helps build the memories of both Collins and Genesis epic tours that fans hold onto for a lifetime.
With 40 years of experience in live sound for some of the world’s biggest names, including French superstars Alain Souchon and the iconic Jane Birkin, Front of House Engineer Michel Colin’s approach to creating an unforgettable experience for the public remains simple yet sonically precise: “Every single instrument you see on stage should be audible for the audience. This even applies to tiny things like a triangle.”
