British rock band Genesis are reuniting for a 2020 tour – their first in 13 years.
During an appearance on Zoe Ball’s BBC Radio 2 breakfast show Wednesday morning, band members Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford made the announcement and revealed details of their comeback tour.
Genesis will perform a series of shows across the UK later this year, but in addition to the classic trio lineup, Collins’ 18-year-old son Nicholas will join the band on drums. Associate Daryl Stuermer will be on guitar and bass.
Sadly though, founding member Peter Gabriel, who left the band in 1975, will not take part in the reunion.
Ahead of the official comeback announcement, the band dropped a major hint of some activity when they posted a black and white picture of Collins, Banks and Rutherford on the Genesis Instagram page, along with the caption: “And then there were three.” This was also the name of their first album as a trio, released in 1978, when guitarist Steven Hackett departed from the band.
Collins joined Genesis as drummer in 1970 and later became the lead singer following Gabriel’s departure. The band split in 1996 and Collins pursued his solo career. Later in the years, Collins faced several health issues and in 2018, told “Rolling Stone” that he would consider a reunion if his son would play drums because “I don’t think I’m capable of it.”
