This fall, Genesis will embark on their first North American tour in 14 years.
“The Last Domino? Tour” will see Phil Collins, Tony Banks, and Mike Rutherford reunite for their first live performances since 2007. Joining the trio will be their longtime touring guitarist/bassist Daryl Stuermer and Collins’ 20-year-old son Nic, who will be filling in for his father behind the drum kit (Collins is no longer able to drum due to extensive nerve damage suffered during Genesis’ last reunion tour).
Genesis had intended to launch their reunion tour in Fall 2020, but due to the pandemic they were forced to postpone those dates by nearly a year. “The Last Dominio? Tour” will now launch in September 2021 with a leg of shows in the UK prior to the North American run starting in November. Tickets are available to purchase here.
Update – May 6th: Genesis have added additional dates in Chicago (11/6), Montreal (11/23), and New York City (12/6).
Update – May 10th: Second shows have also been added in Philadelphia (12/3) and Boston (12/16).
Former Genesis members Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett will not be participating in the reunion tour. “Peter left the band 45 years ago and he’s been trying to live it down ever since,” Banks previously joked in an interview with the BBC. “When they put his birthday in The Times, they always say, ‘Peter Gabriel – Genesis singer.’ And I think, ‘What’s the guy been doing since then, for God’s sake?'”
Banks told the BBC that it didn’t make sense to bring Gabriel back because “most of the songs people know” came after his departure. However, he did stress that “We love Peter.”
Asked to preview the tour’s setlist, Collins said, “There are songs that you feel you have to play because the audience would feel cheated if you didn’t.” But he added, “There are a few old dogs that won’t be running” because they are primarily based around his past drumming abilities.
