3 stars Recorded during four sold out shows at Wembley Stadium 1987, this is Pop era Genesis in their heyday, with a neat little light show to go.

Really good video quality but unfortunately I can't say the same about the music. It's mostly music from Invisible Touch - They do all but one song from that album - and a few from the shapes album and Abacab. At the end there's "Los Endos" and then "Turn It On Again" with a kind of Oldies Goldies medley thrown in.

Highlights are "Domino", The Brazilian", "Home By The Sea", "Second Home By The Sea" and mentioned "Los Endos". The last one being the only song from their Prog era. Also, songs like "Abacab" and "Tonight, Tonight, Tonight" benefits for being played in their full versions. I have in fact never heard the full version of "Tonight, Tonight, Tonight" until I saw this film.

As a bonus, this DVD also include a short documentary about the tour, with interviews with the band from the time and backstage footage. It features about three seconds of evidence that they sometimes did "Apocalypse in 9/8 " & "As Sure As Eggs Is Eggs" during the Invisible Touch tour. A pity they didn't feature those in the main concert movie.

Frasse | 3/5 |
