Here the audio recording of the evening (not integral):

And some moments of the concert, the presentation of Can-utility And The Coastliners:

And the absolute rarity, the execution of Seven Stones, never recorded live in other concerts, instead of Get'em Out By Friday:

The concert is open by the Milanese group Jumbo and the Neapolitans Osanna, whose singer and keyboard player Lino Vairetti said:

"I remember that Peter was particularly impressed by our disguises and by the fact that we went on stage with painted faces and when two years later at the concert in Naples I saw Gabriel's masks I thought that perhaps he had at least partly taken inspiration from us". (from Dusk of 28 April 1999, quoted in: Genesis in Italy. The 1972-1975 concerts of Mino Profumo)
