|Charisma Package Tour 1971
(Van der Graaf Generator, Lindisfarne and Genesis)
|The tour was put together by Tony Stratton-Smith, then owner of Charisma Records, with Van der Graaf Generator Top of the Bill. Nine major concert halls were booked, starting at The Lyceum in London on January 24th, and although this tour initially seemed a risky venture, the 1971 "Charisma Package Tour" has achieved legendary status.
