Genesis will reunite for their first tour in 13 years. Phil Collins, Tony Banks, and Mike Rutherford made the announcement during an appearance on Zoe Ball's BBC Radio 2 breakfast show on March 4th. The band will perform a series of shows across the UK later in 2020.
Rutherford stated “It feels great, it feels the right time, we’re looking forward to doing it. A lot of our contemporaries have been playing a lot – we’ve done two shows in the UK in the last 28 years.” The tour starts in Dublin on 16 November and will be Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford's first live outing together since the globe-trotting, sell-out 'Turn It On Again: The Tour' in 2007.
Collins, Banks and Rutherford will be joined by Collins' 18-year-old son Nicholas on drums and longstanding guitarist Daryl Stuermer.
