Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks will take the stage to perform as Genesis for the first time since 2007.
The trio is reuniting for The Last Domino? Tour, which will consist of 10 shows in the U.K. and Ireland. No other dates have been announced.
Singer Peter Gabriel and guitarist Steve Hackett, who both left the band in the ‘70s, will not be involved and it’s not known if they were asked to participate. Collins’ son, Nic, will play drums on the tour, with the line-up being rounded out by longtime touring guitarist/bassist Daryl Steurmer.
Collins has been unable to play drums because of extensive nerve damage in his hands and at one point considered himself retired from the music industry. But the 69-year-old went back on the road for solo shows in 2017 with Nic on drums while he sang from a chair.
With apologies to the purists, Collins, Rutherford and Banks is often considered to be the classic line-up of Genesis. From 1978’s …And Then There Were Three… to 1991’s We Can’t Dance, the band produced a long list of beloved songs including “Follow You Follow Me,” “Turn It On Again,” “Abacab,” “That’s All,” “Invisible Touch” and “No Son of Mine.”
Murmurs of a potential reunion started heating up last year and went to another level when Rutherford joined Collins at one of his concerts. The two performed “Follow You Follow Me” on a night when Rutherford’s Mike + The Mechanics was the opening act.
