The Way We Walk – Live in Concert is a 2002 double DVD featuring live performances from the We Can't Dance tour by Genesis. The footage was videotaped on 8 November 1992 at Earls Court in London, and first released on VHS in March 1993 as Genesis Live – The Way We Walk – In Concert. It was also available on PAL format LaserDisc.

Contents

The songs on both releases are identical, although the concert on the DVD is split in half to accommodate the extra features. These include interviews, a feature-length commentary by the three band members (Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford), multi-angle viewing options, and photo galleries.

The set list features eight hit singles, from "Turn It On Again" to "Jesus He Knows Me", next to longer album tracks such as "Fading Lights" and "Domino". Seven songs from We Can't Dance are performed. The "Old Medley" comprises excerpts from "Dance on a Volcano", "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway", "The Musical Box", "Firth of Fifth" and "I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)", and snippets of "That's All", "Illegal Alien", "Misunderstanding" and "Follow You Follow Me."

While the two live albums issued prior to this video separated the shorter songs from the longer ones, The Way We Walk – Live in Concert offered a chance to see them in their original context. The only songs included on The Way We Walk, Volume One: The Shorts but absent from the video are "Throwing It All Away", "Mama", "That's All" and "In Too Deep" (the final three having been recorded on the Invisible Touch tour); conversely, the tracks on The Way We Walk, Volume Two: The Longs all appear on the DVD. The only songs that appear on the video but not on either of the two live albums are "Turn It On Again" (though it was included as a B-side of one of the "Tell Me Why" CD singles in early 1993) and "Dreaming While You Sleep", which appears on Genesis Archive 2: 1976-1992 .
