The 'You'll Be in My Heart' hitmaker, Tony Banks, and Mike Rutherford have added more shows to make up the dates previously canceled due to Covid-19 outbreak.

AceShowbiz - Genesis have been forced to extend their final tour after shutting down their upcoming London concerts following multiple positive COVID tests.

The rockers have now rescheduled three dates at the London O2 for March, 2022 - three months after "The Last Domino?" tour was supposed to end.

Earlier this month (Oct21), Phil Collins and his bandmates were forced to postpone their final U.K. reunion shows after more than one positive COVID test "within the band."

The Last Domino? tour kicked off in Birmingham, England last month (Sep21), marking the trio's first shows in 14 years.

As well as three shows in London, the band was also forced to axe a gig in Glasgow, Scotland.

In a message to fans on 8 October (21), the trio wrote, "Following guidance and advice from the Government, it is with huge regret that the final four shows of Genesis' Last Domino? Tour (this evening (8/10) at Glasgow SSE Hydro and 11, 12, 13 October at The O2 in London) have had to be postponed due to positive COVID19 tests within the band."

"We are working to reschedule them as soon as possible and will announce the new dates through our website (www.genesis-music.com) and social media channels as soon as possible."

The statement did not specify if Collins, keyboardist Tony Banks, and guitarist Mike Rutherford had contracted the virus.

"This is a hugely frustrating development for the band who are devastated with this unlucky turn of events," the note continued. "They hate having to take these steps but the safety of the audience and touring crew has to take priority. They look forward to seeing you upon their return."

The new U.K. shows at The O2 in London will now take place on 24 to 26 March.
