News on Forthcoming Phil Collins DVD/Blu-Ray For 2010 Tour; Details On Phil Collins U.K. TV Broadcast

Its been known a while that Phil Collins was recording his Friday, June 25th show at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City for a forthcoming video release. Thankfully, a Genesis fan named Mike Bara was there to talk to the film crew and get details for us! According to Mike the project will be released via Eagle Rock and was shot in high definition. It was later confirmed by World of Genesis.com that Eagle Rock does have intentions of a DVD and Blu-Ray release. The project is shooting for a release close to that of Phil Collins' new album, Going Back, in the fall of 2010. The video release will also possibly include some bonus footage shot by Eagle Rock around the tour as well as some additional video taken around the promotional activities around the album in August. According to a source at Eagle Rock, the added bonus footage is subject to Phil's approval, so that may change by the time this is released. Stay tuned for more details soon.

In other video news, Phil Collins' ITV Studios broadcast in the U.K. on June 28th featured 8-songs: "Going To A Go-Go", "My Girl", "Tears of a Clown", "You Can't Hurry Love", "Heatwave", "Going Back", "Dancing in The Street" and "Two Hearts." To date, this is the only performance where "Two Hearts" has been performed on this tour. The show is expected to air shortly in Europe, but there are no plans at this time to air the program in North America.

According to the official Peter Gabriel site, work has begun on a new Peter Gabriel studio project with The New Blood Orchestra.

No further information is available at this time, but since this project seems to be progressing more quickly than the typical Gabriel studio project, perhaps more details will be revealed in the coming weeks before the 2010 New Blood Tour resumes in Europe in September?

World of Genesis Gets Feedback From Genesis' Management About the 1970 Roundhouse Film Footage

As reported here yesterday, World of Genesis.com contacted Genesis' management about the never-before-unearthed footage of Genesis live at the Roundhouse in 1970. Today, management has issued a statement on the footage exclusively to World of Genesis.com. Its been reported that the band's management spent months tracking down this footage and actually located it. They considered adding it to the Genesis Movie Box last year, but ultimately it was not included since their exhaustive search never turned up the original audio track (what you hear in that YouTube clip is an alternate audio track overdubbed on the film footage - its not the genuine audio). So, at least for now, it sounds like our hopes of seeing the complete film footage from this historic event remain in the hopes and dreams of Genesis fans around the world... but at least we know it exists (somewhere).

Genesis 1970 Roundhouse Film Footage Surfaces!

Its been rumored, discussed, and wished for by Genesis fans for years - the long, lost film footage of Genesis performing live at the Roundhouse on March 11, 1970 - Now, after long last, it has finally been unearthed! Well, snippets of it... and where else? YouTube! The performance, which was part of The Atomic Sunrise Festival opening for David Bowie, featured the Genesis line-up of Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, Anthony Phillips, Mike Rutherford, and John Mayhew and is the earliest known professional concert film footage known to have ever been recorded on the band! This pre-Trespass footage is allegedly about 20 minutes in length and the quality is amazingly good (the snippets show glimpses of "Looking For Someone" and "The Knife")! World of Genesis.com has passed the YouTube link on to Genesis' management. Hopefully, a deal can be arranged to release this important historical film in the future. Stay tuned!
