Genesis Confirm Reunion with U.K. Tour Dates
Published Mar 04, 2020Genesis are officially reuniting. Following rumours this week, the band confirmed the reunion of Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford this morning for a Genesis tour.
The three members — notably without founding member Peter Gabriel — will end a 13-year hiatus from the stage with a U.K. tour dubbed "The Last Domino?" later this year.
They made the announcement this morning on BBC Radio, as well as via the group's socials.
"We all felt, 'Why not?'" Collins said. "It sounds a bit of a lame reason — but we enjoy each other's company, we enjoy playing together."
The band will be joined by additional musicians Nic Collins (18-year-old son of Phil Collins) and Daryl Stuermer for the upcoming shows.
The eight-show tour will take place across November and December, hitting Liverpool, Newcastle, London (for two shows), Leeds, Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow.
Genesis previously reunited in 2007 for a tour, though they haven't released new music since 1997's Calling All Stations. At this time, there is no indication that the band are working on new material.
