"Yes, We’re Playing…

Collins Tarzan 

Sadly, Peter Gabriel doesn’t seem to be part of the festivities — he recently spoke about the proposed reunion on his video blog:

“I think Tony, Mike and Phil are rehearsing now, just checking out whether they want to do something together. I’m not involved in this round, or this year, so I just wanted to make that clear. I haven’t ruled out the possibility of something in the future, but right now I’m going to focus on my own work.”

It’s nice that Petey didn’t just blow off his old mates and admitted “there’s a chance.” But with Gabriel on board or not, the Genesis boys know how to throw a rock show. According to Wikipedia (insert joke here), Genesis was the first band to use Vari*Lite technology, JumboTron screens and the Prism sound system, all of which are now standard features of arena rock concerts. The band has always been at the forefront of rock lighting as well, and hopefully it will continue that trend on the 2007 tour, which many are speculating will be called Turn It On Again.

Rest assured, Hidden Track will follow this story to see whether the band actually announces the dates a week from Tuesday or screws with their fans just a little bit more. Either way, we’ll throw you a bone and whet your appetite with this soundboard from the Invisible Touch tour in 1986.

  1. This is the greatest news I have ever heard. WHO NEEDS PETE? It takes a lot more balls to write a pop song than to wear a dress. Beat it Pete. Make room for the Chester Thompson/Iron Phil drum solo of DEATH!!!!

  2. Is this the “Final Farewell Tour” ? I heard them advertising this a while back. I’m waiting for the Final, Final Farewell Tour. Nice job Scotty B. Put me on the list plus 10.

  3. It ain’t Genesis unless PG is involved, sorry to say, although y’all have fun now. Won’t be spending the $100 to catch this, but I *might* spend the $50 to see Musical Box perform Selling England By the Pound this month.
