4 stars This reunion concert was part of a small tour of the legendary band after 15 years of inactivity. The band decided to play in front of some of the biggest crowd in large stadium. A huge stage and impressive light show was added to create the ultimate experience to the audience. The set list was composed with their latest releases and some old favorites; "Carpet Crawlers", "Ripples" and some excerpts of old ones in a medley. While i prefer by far the Genesis era with Peter Gabriel, some songs like "Domino" and "No Son of Mine" are very enjoyable. However i prefer to skip a couple ballads of the Collins era that are more pop than prog to keep the momentum going...

The picture is nice and the 5.1 DTS mix is loud and impressive. Also, the band have made the most interesting documentary of 2 hours in a third DVD, were you see the friendship of each musicians working in studios and preparing for the tour. We see that the band had a word to say in the design of the stage setup.
