GREAT SONG SELECTION, GREAT SHOW, LOT OF ENERGY!
MAKES (THE ALSO GREAT) 'DANCE TOUR' DVD LOOK BORING
ALL GENESIS FANS...who really ARE Genesis fans...THIS IS A MUST
The concerts in the 80s and 90s were lively and fun and this DVD is a great presentation of that period.
There are some great songs on this DVD. The recording and camera work are excelent also.
You can not deny theat Tony banks is a great musician and composer. Phil collins has a lot of presence (and fun) on stage.
By the way Glen, Daryl is a great musician too. Check out his playing with Jean Luc Ponty or his solo work (yes, he does compose.) Chester is also a very acomplished drummer and plays on Steve Hacketts Tokyo Tapes DVD (I am watching it right now - all I can say is WOW). His career includes years with Frank Zappa, and Weather Report.
I think this is a well produced DVD.
My complaints? Well, maybe it's just the copy I have, but during the parts where the stage is darker, the lights are dim, the picture constantly looks like I'm watching an old TV and I'm sort of picking up another channel. I don't remember the video version having that problem. Like I said, maybe it's just my dvd that does that. My other complaint is they left off too many songs. In Too Deep, In The Cage, and part of Supper's Ready were performed, but they never put them on the video or dvd. During the documentary, they're even talking about those songs and showing clips! Just teasing us! They should have included the whole show. Other than that, any true Genesis fan should get this dvd. Even people who aren't big fans, but know the songs will enjoy this dvd.
So, why only 4 stars? Well, it's not perfect because the "In The Cage/In That Quiet Earth/Apocolypse in 9/8" medley is not here. It wasn't on the video either, but I figured certainly they would include it on the DVD. Nope. Ah, but aside from that ommission, it is the best Genesis concert video yet available. I don't even like the "Invisible Touch" era that much, but these live versions are quite good. And they fixed the sound problem with "The Brazilian" (on the VHS version, the moment in the song where it's just the 2 drummers, the sound is noticeably quieter than the rest of the song -- it's all been fixed).
Highlights for me:
"Abacab" -- best live version of this song I've heard. Ramped up some and not as tired as the version on "Three Sies Live" (1982). I hear this and I remember why I was so smitten with this band.
"The Brazilian" -- This is one of Tony's best songs and, while the version here shows little change over the album version (some solo drumming), it's still great to see this song performed live.
"Domino" -- A better performance than "The Way We Walk" DVD and more energy than the album version.Read more ›

I bought this dvd years ago with the same cover so it must be a re-issue. FABULOUS even though some other Genesis dvds may be even more enjoyable. dwPublished on April 4 2010 by dvdwalt
Genesis was ok without them but never as great as with Steve Hackett and Peter Gabriel. By the way, avoid this DVD as it is a waste of money. Read morePublished on July 13 2004

Oh my god, man, you are insane. Peter Gabriel IS an awesome artist, but Genesis would have and DID become an incredibly successful band with or without his absence. Read morePublished on June 28 2004 by Dante' Swinton
THIS IS A GREAT DVD, THE REVIEWS OF GENESIS SHOULD REFER TO
THE QUALITY OF THE DVD, NOT HATEMONGERS SPEWING THEIR FILTH! Read more
Maybe you should learn to spell before you start spouting your homoerotic Genesis fantasies for all to read. I mean, do you really care that much??? Pathetic.Published on June 19 2004 by Steve Hackett
There is plenty of prog on this DVD. Yes, there is plenty of pop, too. Los Endos from A Trick Of The Tail is on this DVD. The reason that there is no In The Cage, etc. Read morePublished on June 4 2004 by A synth-music fan
