Originally, Phil Collins, better known as Phil Bloody Collins, Eubanks, the American game show host, and Mike Rutherford wanted to reunite as a fivesome with Peter Gabriel and Steve "Buddy" Hackett, but this was considered much too bizarre even in today's culture so the threesome was more acceptable.
Members of the band confirmed that they would embark on the first leg of the tour in Europe, followed by an arm of the tour in the UK, ending up with the arse of the tour in North America.
It has been confirmed that Genesis--for the first time since the Mama tour in 1983--will perform some of Genesis' more well-known songs with Peter Gabriel! (Including some from "Selling Increments by the Pound", and probably something from "The Lamb is $%&*ed on Broadway)
Unfortunately, it has been confirmed by Tony Banks that the medieval rock epic Supper's Ruined from the album "Fotztrot" will not be performed. O Crap...
edit Set list
As of the first leg (European) of the tour, the setlist performed was:
- A Very Long Instrumental (featuring some unrecongisable songs from the "Fluke" Album)
- Turn The Washing Machine On Again
- No Song of Mine
- Mental Confusion
- A Big Long Medley
- Paper Plate featuring Coolio
- A Short Sappy Love Song
- In the Money Cage
- Some Song with a Long Instrumental Ending
- Intermission Bob Eubanks previews a new game show: "Domino"
- An Older Short Sappy Love Song
- Phil Growls
- Phil Dribbles
- Endless Drumming Followed by Another Very Long Instrumental
- I Can't Sing
There has been some speculation that the set list will be "dumbed down" for the North American arse of the tour, because American audiences are not capable of hearing songs with more than a four-chord structure.
