Genesis To Make Another Run For The Border

Good news, everyone! Genesis has announced that they’ll reform for a tour next year. This is not the weird version of Genesis that your older brother listened to, where they all dressed like creamed corn; no, this is the Phil Collins-Mike Rutherford-Tony Banks line-up, the one that gave us such righteous political songs as “Land Of Confusion” and the prescient “Illegal Alien.” It’s a few months away, of course, but we’ve already got plenty of questions: Will Collins still insist on the old “I’m a drummer! No, I’m a singer! No, I’m a drummer!” on-stage back-and-forth? Will members of Mike and the Mechanics be on the road with the band, this time actually working as mechanics? And will the Ronald Reagan puppet and the Bruce Springsteen puppet agree to be in the same room? Genesis Will Reform For Tour Next Year [Gigwise]
