At 17.30 on Sunday 17 May the gates of the Flaminio Stadium in Rome open. The show is scheduled for 19 pm - as seen in the ticket above - still in daylight.

Il supporter is Paul Young, which is literally targeted by all kinds of objects, highlighting the unfortunate choice of the combination. People only want to listen to Genesis.

The concert has various media coverage. Radio RAI realizes a special, with some songs recorded in Malaga, a week before, and live from the Flaminio. Difficult to reconstruct if the Milanese show was also broadcast. Radio Centofiori, a Florentine broadcaster linked to the PCI, also dedicates a lot of space to the event. A TG1 service entitled "Rock is light" is broadcast on TV.

Unlike Milan, as we will see, there are no videos or audio recordings on YouTube - the few made, given the close surveillance on cameras and more, remain private at the moment - but here are some photos taken from Genesis The Movement - 1 e 2.

The group starts with two well-tested and tested two new course horses that make up one powerful opening of the concert (Mamma e Abacab). Watch the video from Live of San Siro in Milan:

Among the new tracks They work well Domino e The Brazilian, even if lightened by com tracksand That's All. Watch the video from the Milan Live:

Among the classicalinstead last tour to In The Cage, which matches in medley with In That Quiet Earth and goes to flow into Afterglow. Watch the video from Live in Milan:

Unfortunately from this medley goes out forever Apocalypse in 9/8, remnant of the glorious Supper's Ready. When it is Show arrives in Italy, there is no trace of this workhorse of the live Genesis and a masterpiece beloved by fans, loudly requested in every concert. The cause: the effort it takes to the voice of Phil Collins. Here's what it looked like in the American part of tour il medley Cage-Quiet-Apocalipse. LISTEN:

And speaking of variations, here's how it was done, in the Australian part of tour, an excerpt from the list:  Your Own Special Way, with the accompaniment of the "Invisible String Section", made up of local orchestras depending on the city, as per local law. LISTEN:

Unforgettable then the drum duet by Phil and Chester Thompson (who, as is known, with Daryl Stuermer for years has accompanied in tour i Genesis), in which the two, now very close, are synchronized like two clocks. Here it is taken from the Wembley Stadium show in early July. LISTEN:
