About the setlist, Tony Banks said to BBC Radio 2 last year:
“There are songs that you feel you have to play because the audience would feel cheated if you didn’t. There are a few old dogs that won’t be running.” In 2018, Phil said that a Genesis reunion would only be possible if his son, Nicholas Collins, could take the stage to help his father on the drums. Since due to an injury, Phil is unable to play the instrument alone during a whole show. Mike Rutherford toured with Phil Collins in his solo shows last year with his band Mike and the Mechanics.
Possible Genesis 2021 Setlist
Since Genesis haven’t released any new songs after their reunion tour in 2007, the possible setlist of the band in this year’s tour will be similar. With many classics on the list like “Turn It On Again”, “Land of Confusion”, “Home by the Sea”. Also “Follow You Follow Me”, “Mama”, “Throwing It All Away”, “Invisible Touch” and “I Can’t Dance”.
