Laravel Artisan event:generate command throwing a Fatal error

I’m following the official documentation for Laravel 5.7 on the events registration and generation:

I have an EventServiceProvider with the following events defined:


namespace AppProviders;

use IlluminateFoundationSupportProvidersEventServiceProvider as ServiceProvider;

class EventServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider

* The event handler mappings for the application.
* @var array
protected $listen = [
'AppEventsFormBeforeCreate' => [
'AppEventsFormAfterCreate' => [
'AppEventsFormBeforeUpdate' => [
'AppEventsFormAfterUpdate' => [
'AppEventsFormBeforeDelete' => [
'AppEventsFormAfterDelete' => [
'AppEventsFormBeforeSave' => [
'AppEventsFormAfterSave' => [

* The subscriber classes to register.
* @var array
protected $subscribe = [

* Register any other events for your application.
* @return void
public function boot()

The error:

When I run the command php artisan event:generate I get the following error:

PHP Fatal error:  Call to a member function listens() on null in /app/vendor/laravel/framework/src/Illuminate/Foundation/Console/EventGenerateCommand.php on line 35

Call to a member function listens() on null

According to the doc, it should do this:

This command will generate any events or listeners that are listed in your EventServiceProvider. Events and listeners that already exist will be left untouched

I don’t understant what I’ve missed since I didn’t find any similar error by searching the web
