Genesis announces The Last Domino? reunion tour

Lineup features members Phil Collins, guitarist Mike Rutherford and keyboardist Tony Banks

Genesis have announced The Last Domino? reunion tour that will see them perform in the UK and Ireland in late 2020. The ten date tour kicks off November 16th at Dublin’s 3 Arena and wraps December 11th in Glasgow’s SSE Arena. Tickets for most shows are on sale Friday, March 6th at 9 am UK time.

This is the first time in 13 years the band has performed together following their Turn It On Again Tour in 2007. The new lineup features classic-era members Phil Collins on vocals, guitarist Mike Rutherford and keyboardist Tony Banks with touring guitarist/bassist Daryl Stuermer and Phil’s son Nic Collins on drums, for the first time. Original vocalist Peter Gabriel will not participate.

The band made the announcement on BBC Radio 2 Wednesday (March 4th) after teasing the news on social media. On Tuesday, they published a photo with the caption, “And then there were three,” sparking speculation and the UK Sun reporting the rumor early.

No US dates have been announced as of press time.

A Genesis lineup didn’t seem likely a few years ago as Collins was retired and couldn’t play drums due to extensive nerve damage. In 2015, Collins announced his unretirement and began performing solo shows in 2017. Nic played the drums on Collins’ most recent trek while his dad performed from a chair.

The group has sold 100 million albums worldwide since their 1969 debut. They have scored 21 UK Top 40 hits and landed six albums at No. 1.
