Live at Wembley Stadium is a 2003 DVD featuring concert footage from three of the four sold out Genesis concerts at the titular London venue from 1 to 4 July 1987. It was first released in 1988 as The Invisible Touch Tour to very positive reception.

The bonus features comprises a photo gallery, scans of the tour programme, and a documentary about the tour first released on the 1987 home video Visible Touch. Some copies of the original VHS releases included a 3" CD of "Domino" from the video, indexed as two tracks ("In the Glow of the Night" and "The Last Domino").

The set list features six of the eight songs from Invisible Touch ("In Too Deep" was performed early on during the tour but later dropped and "Anything She Does" was not performed at any time). The DVD also features favourites from the previous two albums Genesis and Abacab. The oldest songs are "Turn It On Again" (here diverging into a medley of famous songs by other artists) and "Los Endos".

Another medley (of "In the Cage", "...In That Quiet Earth'" and "Afterglow") was performed but omitted (although some footage of "Apocalypse in 9/8", performed in place of "Afterglow" during the North American leg of the tour, can be seen in the documentary portion). Also omitted from Phil Collins' closing remarks is "Thank your Royal Highnesses for coming," a reference to the presence of Charles and Diana in the audience.

Performances of "Abacab" and "The Brazilian" from the Wembley gigs were later included as the B-sides of the "Invisible Touch (Live)" single; "Tonight, Tonight, Tonight" appeared as a B-side on the "Tell Me Why" CD single; "The Brazilian" appeared again on the 2000 compilation Archive No.2 1976–1992.
