I learned a few days ago that Genesis is getting back together for a tour. It’s going to be the core three of Collins, Banks, and Rutherford. Collins still hasn’t fully recovered from his treatment for neuropathy, so his 18 year old son Nic will be handling the drums, like he has been on the recent solo tour. How cool must that be for father and son to work together and for the kid to sit up there as an equal with the legends his dad worked with?
I’m still wishing for a last minute surprise that Peter Gabriel joins them, but that’s pure fantasy. He hasn’t played with Genesis since ‘82. Still, nostalgia is a powerful force amongst aging musicians.
Right now the tour dates are only in the UK, but I’ll be surprised if it doesn’t expand to the States.
