A reunion that was actually "supportive" as the former Genesis singer and the company he founded, WOMAD, were facing a disastrous economic moment, after the equally unsuccessful organization of a festival in July of the same year.

With Daryl Stuermer on guitar, Chester Thompson, on drums and the arrival for the encores of the ex member Steve Hackett (who was on vacation in South America but who did not want to miss), the concert, held at the National Concert Bowl, in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, England was an exceptional event for the nearly sixty thousand lucky people who were in front of the stage in incessant rain.

Eugeno Delmale tells some curiosities of that historic date.

  1. I remember that concert very well! And how to forget it?!? The story is this: with the usual Genesisian friends, as soon as we knew the fact, we agreed to go to London. In 1982 I was 19 years old, it is when I told my father that I would go to London to that concert, he told me that it wasn't even talked about !!! And that's how my friends went to the concert and I, no !!! And who could think that from that famous day, we will never see them together again !!! But I have the LP of that concert (which is very rare), and I console myself with this !!!
