After weeks of rumors, Genesis confirmed they're reuniting for their first tour in 13 years.
The band will do 10 U.K. dates from November 16th in Dublin, Ireland through December 11th in Glasgow, Scotland. Tickets for the shows go on sale Friday. No North American dates have been announced yet.
Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks appeared on BBC Radio 2 Wednesday morning to talk about the reunion and revealed that they had been rehearsing with bassist/guitarist Daryl Stuermer and Collins' 18-year-old son Nick on drums in New York City back in January when they were spotted at a Knicks game. Rutherford said that Collins getting back on stage after years of health issues got the reunion idea rolling.
Collins added that they've just started working on what songs to play and that he hopes to play some drums on a few songs during the tour.
