Genesis reveals why the reunion with Peter Gabriel wouldn’t work

After 13 years since their last reunion tour Genesis is back again with his classic pop-formation composed by: Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford. However, many fans of the band asked why the band ex-singer Peter Gabriel wasn’t invited to tour with the band as well. The members explained that this addition could produce a “weird setlist”. Some fans also asked for the ex-guitarist Steve Hackett.

Mike Rutherford said about Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett on Genesis reunion:

“I know people love the idea that the five of us will get together again. But the songs most people know and love are from the last 40 years. Peter left so long ago. I really don’t know what we could do with him now.”

Tony Banks agreed and said:

“As much as I love those early albums, it would be weird to just do songs from that period. I think a reunion with Steve and Pete would be uphill”.

Phil Collins added:

“Playing with Mike and Tony is the easy option.”

About having Phil Collins son, Nic Collins as the drummer, Tony Banks said:

“The first songs we played were ‘No Son of Mine’ and ‘Land of Confusion.’ Mainly because they’re the two easiest. Nic knew them better than we did. He showed us up – embarrassingly so.”

About releasing a new Genesis album Mike Rutherford said is not on their plans yet:

“It’s not on our radar. This tour is a big undertaking in itself.”

The Last Domino Tour is still scheduled to begin in November with dates only in the United Kingdom
