British Rock band Genesis are going on tour in the UK towards the end of the year, their first tour since 2007, When In Rome.
I was completely unaware and surprised to discover this tour happening 2020! I just purchased 2 tickets now, but be warned, they are very expensive. I understand they are popular, bestselling, revered….but give us a break….£350 for a ticket to stand up? I’d rather sit anyway for £181….a bloody expensive seat. The memory will hopefully be a good one, and will last a lifetime. With the lock down, I am spending less and so have the extra cash. Anyway, that was 1 thing on my list for when I am allowed out again, visit a concert! Genesis have now filled the slot and I am very happy.
The line up will consist of the 3, Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford. Ticket Master UK has this description:
Genesis, one of the biggest selling recording artists of all time and one of Britain’s most internationally renowned bands, will be touring for the first time in 13 years.
The Last Domino? Tour 2020 starts in Dublin on 16 November and will be Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford’s first live outing together since the globe-trotting, sell-out Turn It On Again: The Tour in 2007. They will be joined on stage by Nic Collins on drums, and the band’s long-time guitar and bass player Daryl Stuermer.
Genesis have sold an estimated 100 million albums and have played to sold-out stadiums and arenas all over the world for decades.
The evolution of Genesis is unique, their sound developed and progressed throughout their career and with multiple line-up alterations in the early years, the classic line-up of Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford took shape in 1976.
And Then There Were Three (1978) was the first album the band released as a three-piece and spawned the single Follow You Follow Me which was their first UK top 10 and US top 30 single and proved to be the start of huge commercial global success. The albums Duke (1980), Abacab (1981), Genesis (1983), Invisible Touch (1986) and We Can’t Dance (1991) followed for the trio, alongside almost constant global stadium tours cementing the band as one of the most successful of all time.
Tony, Phil and Mike reunited again as a band in 2007 after almost 10 years for the Turn It On Again Tour which went on to be one of the biggest grossing tours on the year playing sold-out stadiums around the world.
So, there’s the news in this very happy post. Check out the song – I Can’t Dance – by Genesis below for your entertainment. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNJVFloPIVA
