More information: The ninth studio album by Genesis was released in March 1978 by Charisma Records and is their first recorded as a trio of
singer/drummer Phil Collins, keyboardist Tony Banks, and bassist/guitarist Mike Rutherford following the departure of guitarist Steve Hackett. 'And Then There Were Three' marked a change in the band's sound, mixing elements of their progressive rock roots with more accessible material, and Collins contributing to more of the group's song-writing.

The album received generally good reviews from critics, and reached No. 3 on the UK Albums Chart and No. 14 on the US Billboard 200. The lead single 'Follow You Follow Me' became their highest charting at that point, reaching No. 7 in the UK and No. 23 in the US.

Genesis toured the album worldwide with live guitarist Daryl Stuermer and drummer Chester Thompson, both of whom would become mainstays of the band's touring line-up for the next three decades.

The 'And Then There Were Three' tour ran from March to December 1978 and visited North America, Europe, and for the first time, Japan. It cost an estimated £2 million to stage which included the sound system, light and laser displays, and additional effects from six computer-controlled mirrors, all of which took eight hours to set up and five to dismantle. One of their shows featured a guest appearance from Peter Gabriel, who sang 'I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)'. In June, Genesis headlined the year's Knebworth Festival, their only UK show that year.

One of the shows of the tour took place in Dijon, France, on 3rd June í78. Featuring a fine set list, mixing expertly new cuts from the recent album with back catalogue favourites, the concert was recorded for live FM broadcast, and the full gig is now available on this new 2 CD set for the first time.

Note: Recording quality can vary on FM broadcast releases.
