Producer/director Tony Maylam captured the band's performances at the Apollo Theatre in Glasgow, Scotland and Bingley Hall in Stafford, U.K. during the 1976 tour that resulted in the Seconds Out album. The solid direction, song selection, and sound quality put Genesis in Concert on a par with Seconds Out; the film, therefore, serves as a fine companion piece to that audio release. The 45-minute videotape is comprised of seven compositions and features an instrumental rendition of "Fly on a Windshield"/"Broadway Melody of 1974" as well as hot dual drumming on "The Cinema Show" by Collins and Bill Bruford.
