WATCH: Genesis teases 2021 reunion tour stage setup

News 25/01/2021

Genesis has postponed their UK and Ireland reunion tour due to the pandemic. To compensate fans who are eagerly waiting, they have shared a preview of what their stage setup looks like when the concerts take place.

"We're ready, but the world isn't... yet!" the band posted on Twitter. Genesis has postponed their April tour dates for autumn 2021, kicking off on 15th September.

The announcement came with a 50-second video showing Genesis performing 'Behind the Lines', the opening track for the 1980 album, Duke.

Originally, Genesis planned their tour to happen in November and December 2020, but pushed back the dates due to COVID-19. 

Drummer Phil Collins said last year that he was hoping to be able to play the drums during the show despite the nerve damage he suffered. "I'm gonna be doing my best to play some bits on the tour," he said to BBC. "I've gotta start really seriously thinking, but I have already been working out what I'm gonna do and what songs to play on."

Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks will be joined by longtime touring guitarist, Daryl Stuermer and Collins' son Nic on drums for this tour.
