Genesis to play Glasgow show as part of reunion tour

Genesis will play Glasgow’s SSE Hydro later this year as Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks reunite for their first tour in 13 years.

The progressive rock band, known for songs including I Can’t Dance and That’s All, will tour the UK and Ireland this November and December.

The Last Domino? tour will be the outfit’s first time on the road since their Turn It On Again world tour in 2007.

They’ll play Glasgow on December 11 after dates across the country.

The trio, all 69, will be joined by Collins’ 18-year-old son Nicholas on drums and long-standing associate Daryl Stuermer on guitar and bass.

Collins, who has historically provided both drums and vocals, is thought to be unable to play the instrument due to a nerve problem.

Peter Gabriel, one of the group’s founding members, will not be taking part.

Collins, guitarist Rutherford and keyboard player Banks made up the band’s most successful and long-lasting line-up during the late ’70s, ’80s and early ’90s.

They appeared on the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show on Radio 2 to announce their return.

Speaking about his son, Collins told Ball: “I mean, for me, it wasn’t a deal-breaker but it was just something that was working and it was a problem we had to overcome with me not playing, although I’m going to be doing my best to play some bits on the tour.

“So I’ve got to start really seriously thinking but I have already been working out what I’ve got to do and what songs to play on… Tony and Mike both came to the shows at the Albert Hall and both were taken with the way he kind of understood what was needed; he plays a bit like me when he wants to, he doesn’t when he doesn’t want to.

“But I’m one of his many influences, of course, being his dad, and he plays like me and he kind of has the same attitude as me so that was a good starter.”

Asked about the set list for the tour, Collins said: “There are songs that you feel you have to play because the audience would feel cheated if you didn’t, and then it’s a question of putting the rest of the stuff together from songs that maybe we haven’t played for a long time… I mean, obviously we’re still working out what the order will be, but things tend to sort of take shape gradually.”

In January, the trio were spotted together at a New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden, sparking rumours of a reunion.

Genesis formed at Charterhouse boarding school in Godalming, Surrey, in 1967.

Collins took over singing with the band when Gabriel left in 1975, before departing for a solo career himself, saying he needed “to change direction in my musical life”.

Collins enjoyed a successful solo career, recording hits including In The Air Tonight and Another Day In Paradise, among many others.

Tickets for the Genesis tour go on general sale at 9am on Friday March 6.
