More information: Among the ‘Holy Grail, items for Genesis fans, and rumoured to be one of the only professional recordings made on the band's final tour with Peter Gabriel, Genesis’ show at the Shrine Auditorium in L.A. in January 1975 remains an extraordinary listen. Performed on the band's celebrated 1975 Lamb Lies Down on Broadway tour, this show features the entire Lamb rock opera.

The show, recorded for the King Biscuit Flower Hour, was taken from a tour that was particularly interesting for the fact that Peter Gabriel had informed the band he was leaving to pursue a solo career before either the album had been released or the tour had commenced. In order to maximize the momentum of the band at that time, it was agreed that Gabriel's impending departure would be kept a well-guarded secret throughout the jaunt. Thus, Gabriel had to spend a year with the band knowing he was leaving as soon as the tour was over. Despite the fact - or perhaps as a result of it - Gabriel and the band deliver a spectacular performance here in Los Angeles, highlighted by Peter's legendary visual theatrics.
