Genesis are back. The word is out after many years of rumours. Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks have today announced a major UK and Irish tour for November and December 2020.
Their first tour in 13 years. This time, joined by Nic Collins, Phil’s son, on the drum kit and the band’s long time guitarist and bass player Daryl Stuermer, for a run of 10 shows – kicking off in Dublin on 16th November and closing in Glasgow on 11th December.
The Last Domino? Tour tickets are on sale from this Friday 6th March at 9am and for Dublin, on Monday 9th March @ 9am. This will be their first tour since 2007’s sell-out “Turn It On Again: The Tour” outing.
Genesis have sold an estimated 100 million albums and have played to sold-out stadiums and arenas all over the world for decades.
Peter Gabriel their first singer and Phil Collins on drums, then taking up the lead vocals and the drums when Gabriel left for a solo career.
The classic line-up of Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford took shape in 1976.
“And Then There Were Three” in 1978, was the first album the band released as a three-piece and spawned the single “Follow You Follow Me”, their first UK Top 10 and US Top 30 single – the start of huge global commercial success.
The albums “Duke” (1980), “Abacab” (1981), “Genesis” (1983), “Invisible Touch” (1986) and “We Can’t Dance” (1991) all mega-hits alongside almost constant global stadium tours.
Tony, Phil and Mike reunited again as a band in 2007 after almost 10 years, for the “Turn It On Again” tour – one of the biggest grossing tours of the year – playing sold-out stadiums around the world.
