After years of speculation, Genesis fans are finally getting what they want: a reunion.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band's last and longest-serving lineup of Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks have announced 10 concerts in the U.K. and Ireland in a tour dubbed 'The Last Domino?'
It will be Genesis' first live shows in 13 years.
Tickets go on sale Friday, March 6, via the band's official website.
The ...And Then There Were Three...-era lineup of the groundbreaking British progressive rock collective-turned-pop trio has publicly bandied about a reunion since Collins announced in 2015 that he was coming out of retirement to tour on his solo material.
Collins, Rutherford and Banks have remained close friends since Genesis' last show in 2007.
Banks acknowledged in 2018 that he was thinking about getting the band back together after seeing Collins front his solo band with his son, Nic, on drums. Rutherford's Mike + the Mechanics band toured with Collins in Europe last summer and Rutherford joined Collins onstage in Germany for a Genesis song.
In January, all three were spotted taking in a basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York City. A Genesis fan site reported at the time the three were together to "test the waters for future activities," in addition to celebrating Collins' birthday.
