Genesis With Peter Gabriel
Peter Gabriel finally broke down this year and went on his first truly retro tour – a recreation of his 1987 tour in support of So, down to the same band and onstage props. It was a pretty amazing show, but there's something else that the true fans are holding out for: a reunion tour with Genesis. The classic 1970s line-up of Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford and Steve Hackett met in 2004 to discuss such a tour, but Gabriel ultimately backed out. Since then, Collins has suffered nerve damage in his hands that makes it difficult for him to play drums. This makes a Genesis reunion difficult, but Collins has played a couple times in recent years, and he's said he is making slow and steady progress. Maybe he'll be ready to give it a shot in a year or so. If not, longtime Genesis live drummer Chester Thompson can handle his parts. Whatever happens, Genesis should end their career right where it began. The fans have waited long enough.
