British rock band Genesis have confirmed they are reforming for a 2020 tour -- their first in 13 years.
Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford made the announcement during an appearance on Zoe Ball's BBC Radio 2 breakfast show Wednesday morning.
Revealing details of their comeback tour, they said they will perform a series of shows across the UK later this year.
The trio -- the band's classic line-up -- will be joined by Collins' 18-year-old son Nicholas on drums and longstanding associate Daryl Stuermer on guitar and bass.

No Peter Gabriel?
I don’t care anymore
Got news for them, nobody is going to be touring for a year or more ...
I see what you did.....
I have “No Reply At All,” “That’s All.”
Who will be on drums?
At least they are old enough that they will hire others to beat the $hit out of Phil Collins.
Time has not been kind to yesterday’s rockers.
But even so, I have enjoyed playing Genesis’ “In The Air Tonight” over the years, often pairing it with “Silent Running” from Mike And The Mechanics because the thematic tone meshes.
GREAT! Hey politicos...
Thanks for the warning. ; )
Or Steve Hackett? Anthony Phillips?
I saw Genesis in Atlanta. At the Omni, believe it or not. They had Chester Thompson as a second drummer.
I would give anything to see them reunite and perform The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway.
Do you like phil collins? Been a big genesis fan, ever since the release of their 1980 album, duke. Before that i didnt really understand any of their work, it was too artsy, too intellectual...it was on duke where uh, phil collins presence became more apparent...i think invisible touch is the group’s undisputed masterpiece, its an epic meditation on intangibility at the same time it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding 3 albums...christy, take off the robe... listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of banks, collins and rutherford you can practically hear every nuonce of every instrument, sabrina...remove your dress, in terms of lyrical craftsmenship and sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism, sabrina why dont you uh, dance a little! take the lyrics to “Land of Confusion”, in this song, phil collins adresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980’s, about monogomy and commitment, the song is extremely uplifting...their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as uh, anything ive heard in rock.
