Genesis returned to the road on Monday night (September 21st) to kick off the UK leg of its farewell “The Last Domino?” tour. The group — led by Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks, and a hobbled and sedentary Phll Collins — was rounded out by Collins' song Nic Collins on drums along with longtime guitarist and bassist Daryl Stuermer.
The five-man band was supplemented for the first time in the group's career by a pair of backing vocalists — Daniel Pearce and Patrick Smyth. The new shows marked the band's first concerts since 2007
The concert, which included a three-song mini-acoustic set, leaned heavily on the band's '80s material — although die-hards were thrilled by the inclusion of abridged Peter Gabriel-era standards as “The Cinema Show,” “Firth Of Fifth,” and “Dancing With The Moonlit Knight.” Genesis played full-blown versions off such classics as “The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway,” marking their first attempt at the 1974 favorite since 1998, and the show-stopper “I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe),” which featured a snippet of 1970's Trespass rarity “Stagnation.” The show closed with an emotional reading of 1974's “The Carpet Crawlers.”
