A Live that has a particularity: the start time. As Mino Profumo tells in Genesis in Italy, The 1972-1975 concerts, the show starts at 18.00, given that "for the Italians, the austerity Sundays began from December 1973 with the stop of vehicular traffic to cope with the shortage of fuel and the high energy caused by the oil crisis". That Sunday 3 February sees the concert begin and end early for a better return home of the spectators.

Among them, some gave birth to Facebook Group Genesis: live in Turin February 3, 1974, with interesting and passionate memories and unpublished audio and video material.
