Genesis are getting back together for an arena tour across the UK.

Phil Collins, Tony Banks, and Mike Rutherford announced the reuniuon yesterday, 13 years after they last performed live in 2007 to mark their 40th anniversary.

The guys hinted at their reunion on Instagram by posting a group pic and the caption: “And then there were three.”

Rutherford said: “It feels great, it feels the right time, we’re looking forward to doing it. A lot of our contemporaries have been playing a lot – we’ve done two shows in the UK in the last 28 years.”

The group said that they would be joined by Phil Collins’ 18-year-old son Nicholas on drums for the shows. “He plays like me and he kind of has the same attitude as me,” said Collins. “So that was a good starter.”

Peter Gabriel, 70, is not expected to be involved.


Since their debut From Genesis to Revelation in 1969, the band has sold more than 100 million records worldwide.
