Just Fantastic, But Some Anorak Facts!,
This review is from: Live At Wembley Stadium [DVD]  (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.
