Cool. Maybe we'll finally get another decent Sonic game.

For a tv show, trickster subby - it doesn't even say they'll play together.

That"s ok though, I'll enjoy watching it. Lord knows I wouldn't pay the insane price for tix if they toured.

BBC2 will also air a feature length documentary called Genesis: Together and Apart (working title) which the channel says will reunite all original members of the band - Tony Banks, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett and Mike Rutherford.

I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility.

"Reunite" means they're going to be sitting in a room together.

And this may be niggling, but Hackett and Collins are not "original members".

are you THAT dumb?
FYI: Genesis formed 1967. They only got "popular" in the 80s. And continued releasing new material through the 90s. They are more than just an 80s band. Dont let the phil collins (who is very talented despite the tendency to unfairly bash him) era fool you.

While they did break up for a number of reasons, at least some of them remained friends and even worked on music projects together. For example, Phil Collins played drums on solo albums by both Gabriel and Hackett.

Not expecting the guys to choke each other out if they're in the same room.

Long as you don't mention the guitar part on "Pigeons" to Steve.

phlipm34: /would totally buy insane tickets prices for reunion show which will never take place.


Peter needs to take the stick out of his ass about performing old material, especially since he just did a "So" tour a couple years ago. I don't think anybody's expecting him to bust out the old costumes or anything.

It's probably more a matter of them being able to play some of the really old stuff any more. Phil said he had a hell of a tough time when he sat in with The Musical Box about ten years ago. I also remember an interview with Tony Levin from Peter's band where he said they tried to run through parts of "Supper's Ready" for one of the recent tours and it was too damn difficult.

I'm a die-hard Genesis fanatic (hence my username), and I saw them 7 times on their 2007 Turn It On Again tour, but every time something like this comes up, I keep thinking the same thing - why not just record new music and forget the tour crap?

I've heard Mike Rutherford say, in several interviews over the past decade or so, something along the lines of, "We'd love to get together and record new music, but then we have to promote it, and go on tour...and none of us want that."

Guess what, Mike? There's this thing called "the Internet."  You can record whatever you want, mix it, and sell it on iTunes or just directly through the Genesis website.  That's it!  No promotion, no touring - just record and get it out there for the fans who will find it regardless.  They certainly don't need the cash, and I don't think Genesis is the platinum-selling draw it was in the 1980s, but if you just want to make music, trust me - the fans will consume it happily.

/Sigh
//Just want new music from them!
///Maybe invite Steve too, since Steve/Tony had some of the best compositions

MadManMoon: why not just record new music and forget the tour crap?


Because anything with Peter Gabriel in it is going to be an outstanding visual spectacle.

Lots of fans, especially in the US, never got to see the classic version of the band. Genesis were big in Europe but still playing community-college gigs in the US as recently as the "and then there were three" tour.

And shiat, as a superfan you'd be one to know that there's a bunch of tasty stuff they've never done live. I figure they could start with three-man stuff (Down and Out!) for the first third of the show, bring on Steve, do a few from '76-77 (Blood on the Rooftops, dammit), then bring on Peter for the second half of the show.

I don't disagree, but after hearing Peter's non-commital waffling since 1996, I've given up on him entirely.  I love the magic of the Tony/Mike/Phil trifecta, and that's the group from which I want new compositions.  I like all their solo stuff, but something wonderful happens when the three of them enter a studio and just see what comes out.

Both Peter and Phil have young sons who are going to very soon be at the age where they figure out what their dads did for a living back in the day...and they'll want to see the real thing and not a Musical Box show.

Even a Floyd/Zeppelin-style one-off show would be worth it.

And that's fine. I have 45 years of concert-going under my belt and saw them (and many others) back when prices were sane, even cheap. I'm guessing you're younger.

JusticeandIndependence: I was under the impression that Phil couldn't play drums anymore.  Two lead singers?


Chester Thompson been playing with them for so long he could do the drumming if Phil wasn't up to it.

Didn't they do some charity shows together a number of years back in order to pay off some of Peters debts? They were one offs with Peter, Tony, Mike and Phil  IIRC.

/Will watch and probably buy the DVD, can't really afford to pay to see them again since I would have to travel a fair bit to get to a city they might play in.

I'm torn because I dont want to be offensive or even snobbish, but you are talking about the Phil Collins Band, pretenders who continued to use the name Genesis long after it was obviously immoral for them to do so.
