3.0 out of 5 stars Cake Without The Icing!! 27 Jan 2006
Format:DVD
What are they playing at? OK, so I have been a Genesis fan since the 70's and I am naturally biased towards the Gabriel/early Collins eras but I was hugely impressed with the Invisible Touch concerts, particularly the way in which they successfully combined the hits with the weightier, more dramatic material. I eagerly anticipated the release of this DVD, only to find that it shows a concert stripped of the In the Cage/Afterglow centrepiece.

The reason? They had to change the tape. Pathetic. If they wanted to include "Cage" they would have done. They had four nights to draw from so didn't anyone think about changing the running order (or the stage at which the tapes were changed) on one or more of those nights so they could have an interrupted recording of what for me (and many Genesis fans) was far and away the highlight of the set?
This is not just one song missing but a sizeable chunk of the concert, its heart and soul, no less. I don't accept the argument that as In The Cage is available on the Three Sides Live/Mama Tour videos it is not vital to include it here. The fact is that it was an integral part of the show and in any case if we applied the same logic we would omit Mama, Abacab, That's All, Home By the Sea and Turn It On Again, which are all available on one or other of those videos.
To me the whole things smacks of men in suits making decisions about what we, the punters, really want (apparently it's just the later stuff).

3.0 out of 5 stars Suppers gone cold...... 28 Nov 2003
Format:DVD
The documentary speaks of and shows excerpts from "In the Cage" and the closing section of "Suppers Ready". Phil Collins talks about playing this "really really old" material together with the 'new' Invisible Touch material.
I remember seeing this show when Genesis toured Australia and this medley was just great. In fact it was the very best part of a concert setlist that otherwise concentrated a little too heavily on the latest tunes.
The "old stuff medley" in it's various incarnations has over the years , been a regular and much loved part of a Genesis concert. The version that was a part of the Invisible Touch Tour (ending with the closing section of Suppers Ready .... rather than Afterglow) was possibly their best effort to date.
Why then , was it left off this new Live at Wembly Stadium DVD ?
Lazy , silly record company decision?
As a fan, I was always going to buy this DVD,and it is good , however it's frustrating to know that it could have been great with the missing material restored.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Fantastic, But Some Anorak Facts! 9 Aug 2007
Format:DVD
I was at the concert at Wenbley in '87, Knebworth in '92 and Twickenham in '07. I have to say the DVD captures the concert perfectly. Couple of points,
1. It wasn't a Prince's Trust Concert.
2. A lot of comments here about changing the tape to capture the whole concert. The concert was a very early high-definition recording, if you happen to own the original 1987 VHS tape there is mention of this on the back cover and it wasn't just a case of changing one tape, it took 3 professional analogue tape recorders, each the size of a domestic washing machine using open reel tape to record the signal, the tapes ran a maximum of 90 minutes and changing them was not a 10 second job. Hard to imagine the complexity 20 years ago when your sky+HD box will record many hours on a much smaller hard drive.
OK I admit that someone should have planned this a little better over the 3 nights that Genesis played at Wembley.
I love the DVD, admittedly it's incomplete, but it's still a work of art.

5.0 out of 5 stars A spectactular 25 April 2008
By Jeremy Walton TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I borrowed this from my friend who'd bought it as a reminder of our attendance at one of these Wembley concerts. I already had a recording of the BBC broadcast of the final night from this engagement (and indeed, of the whole tour) and it's one of my favourite live shows, so it was great to see the pictures as well. It's a fantastic concert film: detailed, atmospheric and exciting.

The quality of the visuals is stunning, ranging from sweeping shots of the enormous crowd under a perfect summer evening sky (against which the silhouettes of the twin towers are particularly elegaic) to views of the stage and the mind-bending (for its time) light show. The closeups of the musicians look good too (something you couldn't - of course - appreciate when you were there, notwithstanding one of the earliest uses of giant video screens).

As others have commented, it's something of a pity that the one piece of the setlist that had to be cut out of the video was the old medley, since this was much better than the weaker material off Invisible Touch, but that's a small criticism to make of this fine memory of a spectacular evening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peaking it Live! 6 Jun 2004
By Merv
Format:DVD
Ah yes! I remember it fondly - the 80's!.
Big hair, bright clothes and big albums, ( and I mean BIG)!!, and perfectly sat amongst all that decandent chaos is probably, one of the biggest albums to emerge in the 1986 - Genesis - Invisible Touch and also the accompanying tour.
Invisible Touch Tour spanned the globe and played to sell-out audiences for the best part of a year and a half, this was a typical Genesis concert- perfectly practiced, with big lights and even bigger sounds.
You've got the classics, (Los Endos/Turn It On Again), and also the new stuff, including Invisible Touch, The beautifully understated Throwing it all away, and the superb Domino- this is, of course, a mere sample of what's to offer on this DVD.
All in all, a most comprehesive collection of their hits, and superb sound/picture quality, (Dolby 5.1 Surround), for all you techie types.
Well worth it!
Buy it!!
