October 2, 1982, Six of the Best: "solidarity" reunion of Genesis

October 2, 1982. On the advice of Genesis manager Tony Smith, Peter Gabriel and his former bandmates agree to playing together in a unique and unforgettable show that will be called 'Six of the Best'.

An reunion actually "supportive" since the former Genesis singer and the company he founded, WOMADthey 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), and on Mike Rutherford's birthday (with a lot of audience choir), the concert, held at the National Concert Bowl, in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, UK, was a unique and exceptional event for the nearly sixty thousand lucky people who, in an incessant rain, were in front of the stage.
