Ahead of Genesis’ long-awaited reunion tour starting tonight (September 20) in Birmingham, Phil Collins has confirmed it will be the band’s last.
Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford and Phil Collins announced in early 2020 that they were reuniting for a tour called The Last Domino?’. The trio, playing together for the first time since 2017, are set to join the tour with Nick Collins on drums and guitarist/bassist Daryl Stummer.
The tour’s UK run, originally scheduled for November and December 2020, was pushed back to April and then to September – all due to the coronavirus pandemic – before a newly announced North American run.
Before the UK tour began tonight, Collins ruled out further dates from the band, saying it would be the last Genesis show ever.
in a new interview with mojoCollins said: “This English and American tour, would be enough for me.

Earlier this month, Phil Collins gave a rare interview in which he updated fans about his ongoing health battles and the impact it has had on his ability to perform.
The musician has been suffering from nerve damage since a spinal injury in 2007 in which he damaged vertebrae in his upper neck.
Discussing Genesis’ upcoming reunion tour – in which Collins’ son Nick will take his place behind Kitt – he said: “I’m a little physically handicapped which is very disappointing because I’d love to play there with my son.”
