Genesis will reunite next year for a "Turn It on Again" tour of Europe, their first tour in 15 years.
Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford, and Tony Banks, the threesome of supergroup Genesis have on Tuesday Nov 7th announced a comeback stadium tour across Europe in summer 2007. The singer, keyboardist, and guitarist are reuniting for the Turn It On Again tour that would let fans hear a side of the band that went beyond their hits.
The trek will kick off at Olympic Stadium in Helsinki, Finland on June 11 and make stops in 12 different European countries, including Denmark, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Holland and the U.K., before wrapping up with a free concert in front of the Colosseum in Rome on July 14.
"I think we just felt that now was the right time to have a go at it," said Collins confirming the band reunion. "If money was an issue, we'd be playing more shows than we are going to play in Europe and America. But I think we're all loaded enough without having to worry about where the next million or two is coming from."
