Later, they treated fans to a performance of ‘I Can’t Dance’ and a medley of ‘Dancing With The Moonlit Knight’ and ‘The Carpet Crawlers’.

The UK run of the tour, originally set for November and December 2020 before being pushed back to April and then again to September – all due to the coronavirus pandemic –  precedes a newly announced North American run.

Ahead of the UK leg of the tour beginning, Collins ruled out any further dates from the band, saying these will be the last Genesis shows ever.
