By this time they had cemented themselves as permanent touring members.

'82 Three Sides Live Encore Tour

Genesis' 1982 Encore Tour was in support of their iconic live album album Three Sides Live released on June 4, 1982, worldwide. The tour didn't kick off until August 1st, 1982 in Peoria Illinois an ran until September 30, 1982, finishing at the famous Hammersmith Oden in London England. The tour had 45 shows and 2 legs to the tour.

The 2nd leg of the tour in Europe which began on September 3rd, 1982, at Charmilles Stadium in Geneva Switzerland. The Encore Tour again featured the return of Daryl Stuermer on guitar and Chester Thomson on the drums. The setlist was similar to the '81 Abacab Tour setlist but brought back some older fan favorites like Watcher Of The Skies and the epic Supper's Ready, played in it's entirety for the last time on this tour. Subsequent tours only featured fragments of the song. It should be noted that be noted that Peter Gabriel reunited with Genesis for one show in Milton Keynes billed as Six Of The Best on October 2nd 1982. Steve Hackett also made a guest appearance on 2 songs that evening. This show could technically be looked at as the last show of the Encore Tour but it featured a completely different setlist centered around the Gabriel era material. Here are the songs that were featured on this tour, not counting the Six Of The Best show. Not every song was done every night and some songs were only done a few times.
