Released by EMI Records on 26 May 2008, 'When In Rome 2007' is a triple DVD featuring over 5 hours of material, shot during the band's hugely successful 2007 summer tour, 'Turn It On Again', their first in 15 Years. The tour ended with a show at Rome's Circo Massimo last July in front of 500,000 fans, and is captured here in its full glory. The package includes a spectacular fly-on-the-wall documentary.
On 20 May, selected ODEON cinema audiences get the chance to watch a full screening of "Come Rain Or Shine" the documentary filmed during the Turn It On Again Tour by filmmaker Anthony Mathile. A fascinating candid insight into the relationship of three band members that has endured for more than four decades, it is an in-depth, unusually frank and humorous look into the dynamics of life on the road and the mechanics, decisions and presentation of a legendary band on tour for the first time in 15 years. Utilising the full cinema sound and the 5.1 surround sound recording, audiences will also be treated to selected footage of the "When In Rome" concert DVD presented in HD.
Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford of Genesis will attend the DVD Premiere at ODEON Kensington and take part in a Q&A session with fans in the cinema's audience on the night. They will also answer questions from fans across the UK which can be submitted in advance via the band's official website, Genesis-Music.com.
