With increasing anticipation running up and down on Genesis' upcoming tour, the band has no choice but to announce the dates and venues. The band will make BMO Field in Toronto the preliminary site on September 7 and Hollywood Bowl the final stop on October 12. Within the dates, several other big venues all over Europe and 13 cities across America will also be visited.
Unfortunately, former frontman Peter Gabriel will not be joining the lots. Instead, the tour will feature threesome; Phil Collins in the drum, Tony Banks in Keyboard and also Mike Rutherford in the guitar. However, Collins stated that the chance of Gabriel joining them in other future projects is still large. "It's not like it's a party that we're holding that Peter didn't come to," Collins explained during a news conference.
As compensation, Chester Thompson and Daryl Stuermer the band's ex-sidemen will help the band performing. Backstage crew for the tour itself has been prepared carefully in order to make a spectacular stage show.
For the first time in 15 years since their breakups, the Grammy award winning band is giving its music fans the re-shakeups they need. Michael Cohl, a tour promoter said, "Genesis is absolutely one of the world's most exciting bands of all time. They have always been an amazing concert experience and I'm thrilled that fans will be able to see them perform again live."
Getting busy, the band will also slip some other activities within the tour dates including a free concert at the Circus Maximus, Rome. There is also a speculation that the band may appear in former U.S. Vice President Al Gore's "Live Earth" event on July 7.
Tickets for the tour can be purchased starting from Saturday, March 10 in Montreal and Philadelphia and March 12 in Boston, Chicago, East Rutherford, Hartford and Toronto. For a more complete details on the tour visit genesis-music.com.
