The iconic rock trio are back for The Last Domino UK Tour, with full dates and tickets details now announced.
It’s been 13 years since Genesis last toured together, but they are finally back.
Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks have announced new details of The Last Domino? UK Tour, which will see them head out on a series of dates in spring 2021.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the legendary band have moved their shows from late 2020 to early 2021, as well as two more dates due to high demand. All existing tickets will still be valid.
Genesis will now play an extra show each at London's O2 and Birmingham's Utilita Arena in April 2021.
Tickets for the newly added shows went on sale today (July 24) at 9am from here.
The tour will not include appearances from former members Peter Gabriel or Steve Hackett. The trio will be joined by Collins' 18-year-old son Nicholas on drums and Daryl Stuermer on guitar and bass.
The Last Domino? tour will now start in Glasgow on April 1. Ticket holders will be contacted by their ticket agent.

“I think it’s a natural moment. 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!,” said Rutherford.
Collins said: “For me, it was something that was working and it was a problem we had to overcome, although I’ll be doing my best to play some bits on the tour. I’ve been working out what songs to play, but Tony and Mike came to the shows at the Albert Hall and both were taken with the way he understood what was needed.
“He plays a bit like me when he wants to. I’m one of his many influences, being his dad. He plays like me and he kinda has the same attitude as me, so that was a good starter.”
Genesis are one of the most successful bands of all time, selling over 100 million records worldwide. They started off life as a progressive rock band fronted by Peter Gabriel, but eventually morphed into a stadium-filling pop-rock trio with drummer Phil Collins taking over as frontman.
They last reunited in 2007 for their sell-out Turn It On Again Tour. Rumours of a reunion emerged earlier this year, when Collins, Rutherford and Banks were spotted at a basketball game.
