Genesis is back on tour, playing its first North American dates since 2007, with the shows destined to be the band's final shows on the continent. The group's “The Last Domino?” tour features bandmembers Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks, and a hobbled and sedentary Phil Collins.
The touring ensemble is rounded out by Collins' son Nic Collins on drums along with longtime guitarist and bassist Daryl Stuermer. The five-man band is supplemented for the first time in the group's career by a pair of backing vocalists — Daniel Pearce and Patrick Smyth.
Co-founder Tony Banks chatted with USA Today and spoke about the preparation for the tour, which featured what was once one of rock's most physical and engaging frontman, who now performs sitting down all night: “We spent a lot of time thinking about the vocals and slightly changed the emphasis of the set so it’s a bit less instrumental. Nic really plugs the gap very well and the visuals work in a way that a seated Phil isn’t as noticeable.”
