For the first time since an impromptu performance of "I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)" at a Steve Hackett show in 1983, Peter Gabriel has performed a Genesis song live in concert.
The performance took place on July 24 in Edmonton, Canada, and the tune in question was none-other than the band's all-time classic, the opening track of 1973's "Selling England by the Pound," the one and only "Dancing with the Moonlit Knight."
The show was a part of Gabriel's joint tour with Sting, and while the song found its place on the setlist throughout the trek, this was the first time Peter chimed in on the vocals.
The man performed only the first segment of the tune, and then the rest of the band to jumped into "Message in a Bottle."
The show's setlist featured a mixture of Gabriel and Sting tracks, and the "Moonlit Knight" was the only Genesis song they performed.
Check it all out below.
