Genesis guitarist Mike Rutheford has hinted that the band may perform in North America before their postponed reunion shows in the U.K.
In a new podcast interview, Rutherford told “Rockonteurs” hosts Gary Kemp and Guy Pratt that he does not see the U.K. and Ireland dates happening this fall. However, he said that the band could play some North American dates at the end of this year.
“American shows might be in November [on the East Coast],” Rutherford said. “They are confident, they want to do it.”
The band had announced “The Last Domino?” reunion tour featuring Rutherford, singer Phil Collins and keyboardist Tony Banks in March 2020. However, the coronavirus pandemic forced them to postpone the tour indefinitely.
The band were set to hit the U.K. and Ireland in the fall of 2020 but postponed the dates first to spring 2021 and then to this September and October.
The tour will be Genesis’ first in 15 years. The band effectively retired in 2007 when frontman Collins announced he was quitting.
