On 19 October 1991, Marillion performed at the Salle de fêtes Beaulieu in Lausanne, Switzerland, as part of their Holidays in Eden tour. This tour was in support of their eighth studio album, Holidays in Eden, which marked a departure from their previous progressive rock style and a shift towards a more mainstream pop rock sound. The album received mixed reviews from critics and fans, but was a commercial success, reaching number 7 on the UK Albums Chart and spawning four singles.

The concert at Lausanne was recorded and released as FRC-007, a limited edition CD for the members of the official fan club, The Web. The CD featured 12 tracks, including some of their classic hits such as Kayleigh, Lavender, and Easter, as well as some songs from Holidays in Eden, such as Cover My Eyes (Pain and Heaven), No One Can, and The Party. The CD also included a cover version of Sympathy for the Devil by The Rolling Stones, which Marillion often played as an encore during this tour.

The performance at Lausanne showcased Marillion’s musical versatility and energy, as well as their interaction with the enthusiastic Swiss audience. The band members were Steve Hogarth on vocals and keyboards, Steve Rothery on guitars, Mark Kelly on keyboards, Pete Trewavas on bass and backing vocals, and Ian Mosley on drums and percussion.
