Genesis reschedule reunion tour for 2021 and add two new dates

The band's November and December shows have been axed due to coronavirus

Genesis have confirmed that their much-anticipated reunion tour, set to take place across the UK and Ireland this November and December, has been postponed.

Due to continued restrictions on large gatherings in response to the coronavirus pandemic, the prog veterans have announced new dates for the ‘The Last Domino?’ tour in April 2021. You can see them in full below.

Core members Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks reunited in March, announcing their first live shows in 13 years.


Among the new dates are two additional shows, at Birmingham’s Utilita Arena and London’s O2 Arena on April 7 and April 30 respectively.

“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!”

Meanwhile, Genesis have spent the coronavirus lockdown uploading a series of classic gigs, streaming one new show every weekend.
