Genesis' 'Three Sides Live' makes Blu-ray debut.

Having been a big Genesis fan since I was a teen and nearly worn out my cassette of the live set back then, this is a must view for me...

On Nov. 4, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release Three Sides Live by Genesis. This is a simultaneous release on DVD and Blu-ray. This concert film will be available for the first time as a standalone DVD and for the first time ever on Blu-ray.

Filmed in November 1981 on the Abacab tour in North America, Three Sides Live was originally released on VHS to coincide with the live album of the same name. It has only been released on DVD in limited edition box set The Movie Box 1981-2007.

Initially filmed in 16mm, the footage has now been fully restored and is being reissued as a standalone DVD and Blu-ray for the first time. The show focuses on tracks from the Duke and Abacab albums and the tracks are intercut with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the band members.

As always with Genesis, the show is visually stunning and it captures the band in their transition from their progressive days in the 1970s through to the hugely successful pop/rock act they became from the mid-eighties onwards.

The line-up on Three Sides Live features Tony Banks (keyboards, backing vocals); Phil Collins (drums, lead vocals); Mike Rutherford (guitar, bass, backing vocals) with Daryl Stuermer (guitar, bass) and Chester Thompson (drums).
