Genesis In Concert is a concert film directed and produced by Tony Maylam for the English progressive rock band Genesis. The recording of the film took place during concerts in Glasgow, Scotland and Stafford, England in 1976. The film was released in 1977.

Background[edit]

Genesis: In Concert documents the concert tour that Genesis embarked on in 1976, after their album A Trick of the Tail. This was the first album on which Phil Collins assumed the duties of lead vocalist (following the departure of Peter Gabriel). On the album, Collins sings lead vocals and plays drums. But since Collins wanted to focus on his singing duties during live shows, Genesis brought in former Yes and King Crimson drummer Bill Bruford to play drums and percussion during this tour. The movie combines film of two shows: one at the Apollo Theatre in Glasgow, Scotland on 9 July 1976, and one at Bingley Hall in Staffordshire, England on 10 July 1976. During the songs "Cinema Show", "Entangled", and "Supper's Ready", the footage of the concert is combined with other film clips, often in an abstract manner. These portions of the movie could be considered partway between a concert film and a music video.

Rerelease[edit]

The film was released on laserdisc in Japan in 1992.

The 2007 reissue of A Trick of the Tail includes Genesis: In Concert as a feature on a bonus DVD. The quality, however, is far from an optimum standard. The film appears to have been transferred from the laserdisc master videotapes, and not directly from the source film reels.

Director Tony Maylam still possesses the source films. It is possible that one day a complete show could be released.
