5 stars I did not follow Gabriel's career after the album "Us" in 1992, so my astonishment was ever bigger while watching this video. Gabriel was always, not only a remarkable musician, composer and lyricist, but also highly original stage performer or actor since the early GENESIS days. This time he created a magnificent show that integrates his music, band performing live, high tech gadgets, stunning visual design, theatrical mise en scene and film directing. Of course, credits must be paid to other people as well, primarily to film director Hamish Hamilton and stage director Robert Lepage. Even the orange-robed stage crew has almost the acting part in the overall performance while preparing and handling the techinal machinery for props. "Growing Up Live" is one of the best musical videos I ever watched so far, therefore I shouldn't be too modest with rating.
