|Genesis concert chronology|
The Invisible Touch Tour was a worldwide concert tour by the English rock band Genesis. The tour began on 18 September 1986 in Detroit and ended on 4 July 1987 in London.London dates at Wembley Stadium were filmed for a video release entitled Genesis Live at Wembley Stadium . The group earned as much as $300,000 a night in North America alone.
Whilst the setlist varied, this is a representation of the average setlist from this tour.
Every song from Invisible Touch was performed throughout the tour except for "Anything She Does"; however the song's promotional video was used to introduce the band at the beginning of each show on the tour. On the Australian leg, "Your Own Special Way" was performed for the first time since 1977. The 1987 U.S. and European legs of the tour saw the "Supper's Ready" section of the "In the Cage" medley dropped in favour of "Afterglow"*+. "In Too Deep" and "Follow You Follow Me" were dropped from set.
New songs "Throwing It All Away", and "Land of Confusion" contained several high notes that were vocally challenging for Collins to perform every night. To prevent potential damage to his voice, the songs were performed in a lower key from their original studio recordings as a safety measure after the initial North American leg of the tour. To this end however, the song "Invisible Touch" was placed in the set directly after the vocal stretching "Apocalypse in 9/8" (dropped for this very reason) and was never performed live in its original key of F on this or any tour thereafter.
