I went with my wife, Julie (we got married in May of that year), plus her friend and hubby. We went by train, from Birmingham and the friend's hubby decided to go home, long before Genesis took the stage, due to the weather and mud shocked.

My only regret is that halfway through the afternoon, I was persuaded to move towards the back, due to the "conditions" nearer the front, so I only saw Genesis play from a long distance. I still have the dog-eared programme. One of my most vivid memories is walking out, at the end, with the theme to Hill Street Blues playing (one of my favourite TV programmes of all time).

Hi there



And despite the protestations of the band members to the contrary, the gig WAS filmed. From where I was standing I could see two cameramen on stage and have since been reliably informed that a third was located on the lighting tower mid way in the field. I can understand why it has never been released - a below average performance from Gabriel who was woefully under-rehearsed and the foul weather. It would be a nice item for those of us who were there though.

There is definitely an audio recording - as the one on Youtube is the full show - and sounds great! Whoever has that audio may have a video to go with it perhaps?!

- If there is an official film of it - it would be great to see just out of curiosity! We fans would not care how under-rehearsed it was! smiley - An under-rehearsed Genesis probably sounds as good if not better, as any another rehearsed rock band! wink

Hi there



There are several audio recordings of the gig in existence and the soundboard of it is in the band's own sound archive as I have seen the cassettes there myself. None of the band have ever owned up to the existence of the film though.

Hi there


Oh yes! Who knows, perhaps the film may emerge one day. After all, Flaming Youth footage has just been released so almost anything is possible. Funny that I have just completed a feature for the next TWR looking back on 1982 as a Genesis fan. Digging out some of the photos was highly entertaining.
