“I think it’s a natural moment,” said Rutherford of their reunion back in March. “Phil’s been out on tour for the last two-and-a-half years and his son Nick has been drumming, so it seemed like the natural moment to have a conversation about it. We’re all still good friends, we’re all above grass and here we are!”

Earlier this year during the coronavirus lockdown, Genesis began uploading a series of classic gigs to YouTube, streaming one new show from across their career every weekend.

This month, Phil Collins issued a cease and desist order to US President Donald Trump, after Trump used Collins’ classic hit ‘In The Air Tonight’ at one of his rallies without permission.
