More information: Genesis had just released what was to become their best-selling album, Invisible Touch, a few months prior to this remarkable concert was performed at the Forum, in Los Angeles, on October 15th 1986. Having moved into a more pop-oriented direction in the early '80s, Genesis was now attracting even more new fans, particularly MTV viewers who enjoyed their sometimes a little silly, but often inventive videos. At the same time, they held onto a loyal fan base that stretched back to their days as an art rock band.

Riding this momentum, Genesis played five consecutive nights at the Forum in October of 1986. This excellent recording was made on Wednesday, the third night of the run.

A highlight for older fans is a long medley of three tried-and-true tunes near the end of the set including a part of 1972's "Supper's Ready".

This is a show that captures Genesis at the peak of their popularity - at a time when they (and former member Peter Gabriel) were all over the media. It's a concert with sugary pop and catchy dance tunes, but one that also features, at the same time, superb musicianship and extended instrumental jamming.
