As a teaser for their upcoming fall 2021 UK tour dates, Genesis has posted their latest rehearsal montage. The new clip features shots of the band running through their show over a rehearsal version of their 1986 Invisible Touch classic, “Land Of Confusion.” The September and October dates mark the third time the band has been forced to reschedule the shows due to the ongoing pandemic. Genesis last reunited in 2007 for the 48-date trek, “Turn It On Again: The Tour.”
The band — featuring Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford, and Tony Banks — will be joined on the road by longtime lead guitar and bassist Daryl Stuermer, and Phil Collins‘ son Nic Collins on drums. The group’s 19-show European leg hits the UK and Ireland in September and October. So far, no North American dates have been announced.

- Out now is the latest Genesis retrospective, titled R-Kive. The 42-year, 37-track set differs from every other Genesis collection in that it features a healthy dose of solo tracks from the members of the band’s classic lineup: Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks, and Steve Hackett.
- The album — which ignores the band’s debut album, 1969’s From Genesis To Revelation — begins with “The Knife” from 1970’s Trespass featuring co-founder Anthony Phillips — whose solo work is not on the new set.
- Highlights on the collection include Peter Gabriel’s “Solsbury Hill,” and “Biko”’ Phil Collins’ “In The Air Tonight,” his duet with Phillip Bailey on “Easy Lover,” alongside Mike Rutherford’s Mike + The Mechanics’ “Silent Running” and “The Living Years.”
- Also released on DVD is the Genesis career-spanning documentary, Sum Of The Parts, which features over 30 minutes of additional interviews with the band that were not included in the BBC and/or Showtime versions.
