I was too young when Gabriel fronted GENESIS, so never saw them until the Invisible Touch tour which I hated, before I got this DVD, only had seen pieces of footage of Gabriel with my favourite band on stage, his famous act, his costumes, the way he communicated with the audience, his acid sense of humour were just a legend for me.

After many years of dreaming with this performances bought "Genesis Live" I could find in Lima, and wasn't cheap here in my country, but I don't regret what I paid, watching the whole band perform Supper's Ready, Hackett playing sited down without caring for anything beside his guitar, Tony Banks practically hiding behind his old organ while giving some of his best solos, Rutherford proving he was a clue member and Peter joking with a Phil Collins who acted as a second frontman was simply unbelievable for me.

I had only seen characters such as Britannia, Old Henry or the Lawnmower on photos, but watching Peter Gabriel actually moving, talking an singing with those costumes was like meeting with old friends who I had only talked by phone, looking at Phil making those outstanding backing vocals on "The Musical Box" was something I didn't expected, because things only get real when you watch them.

I read all the books about early GENESIS I was able to grab, listened all their albums, singles, even bootlegs, heard stories, felt envy of those who had tthe chance to see this shows but this DVD proved me I choose the right band to be my favourite, yes the image is bad and the sound isn't much better, but I wouldn't change this DVD for a new video of any other band.

If you are a GENESIS fan like me, you need to get this DVD, it's worth.....Despite the bad quality film and sound, I rate it with 5 stars, because it's an historical document, and this is priceless.


PS: Thanks to the previous reviewer, I didn't knew this DVD had been added here so long ago,otherwiseI would had reviewed it before
