Peter Gabriel back in Genesis

On Tuesday it will become official: Genesis are to reunite, with Peter Gabriel on vocals and Steve Hackett on guitar. And Phil Collins will once again take position behind the drums.

APART FROM A charity performance in 1982, it is 31 years since they shared a stage. But now it is a fact. The legendary five piece setting, with Peter Gabriel on vocals and Phil Collins on drums is back together.

A new album will be released this autumn and that will be followed by a tour where the group is expected to re-create the stage version of their concept album ‘The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway’. That stage version was never filmed during the day, but whose legend has grown ever stronger over the years.

Dagens Nyheter learns that Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins on Tuesday will make the announcement about the reunion at a press conference in Los Angeles.

During the first half of the 70’ this setting of Genesis released four studio albums and a live album which were considered as pioneer works within progressive rock. Peter Gabriel left the band in 1975 and has since enjoyed a successful solo career and is considered a pioneer in world music, music video making and multimedia.

Genesis’ most recent album ’Calling all stations’ was released in 1997. By then, also Phil Collins had left the group and both the album and the subsequent tour were great flops.

‘The reason behind the band breaking up was due to the fact that everyone in the band was a songwriter’, said key member, keyboard player Tony Banks when I met him at the offices of the band’s management in London.

‘There simply were too many ideas circulating. And in those days we looked upon side projects as being unthinkable if you were to remain in the band. You could say we've all matured since then.’
