Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks are coming to Glasgow after reuniting as Genesis for their first tour in 13 years.

The progressive rock band, known for songs including I Can’t Dance and That’s All, will tour the UK and Ireland this November and December.

They will take to the stage at the Hydro on December 11.

The Last Domino? tour will be the outfit’s first time on the road since their Turn It On Again world tour in 2007.

The trio, all 69, will be joined by Collins’ 18-year-old son Nicholas on drums and long-standing associate Daryl Stuermer on guitar and bass.

Collins, who has historically provided both drums and vocals, is thought to be unable to play the instrument due to a nerve problem.

Peter Gabriel, one of the group’s founding members, will not be taking part.

Collins, guitarist Rutherford and keyboard player Banks made up the band’s most successful and long-lasting line-up during the late 1970s, 80s and early 90s.

They appeared on the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2 to announce their return.
