Genesis are ready for their comeback.
Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford are reuniting for The Last Domino? Tour 2020, the British prog rock legends’ first tour in 13 years.
Collins, who played stadiums and arenas around the globe last year on his long-running Not Dead Yet Tour, won’t be behind the kit. According to a statement issued Wednesday (Nov. 4) by the tour producer Live Nation, the traveling lineup will feature Collins’ son Nic on drums, and veteran guitar and bass player Daryl Stuermer.
The ten-date arena tour of the U.K. and Ireland is scheduled to kick off Nov. 16 at Dublin 3 Arena, and wrap up Dec. 11 at Glasgow SSE Hydro, for what will be the band’s first trek since 2007’s globe-spanning Turn It On Again tour.
Genesis were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 2010, a reward for a decades-long career during which the band shifted more than 100 million albums and inspired musicians everywhere who obsess over complex chord structures and lengthy improvisations.
Genesis had two distinct incarnations. The classic lineup that’ll tour later this year was formed in 1976 following the departure of Peter Gabriel, and the arrival of Phil Collins, a road-hardened professional who would slot in on drums and take lead vocal duties.
