Genesis announced a UK/Ireland reunion tour just before the pandemic that has since been rescheduled, but the tour could be coming over to North America eventually, too.

Guitar Mike Rutherford said in an appearance on Rockonteurs that while he doubts the rescheduled dates in the UK and Ireland will happen, he thinks a select amount of dates could happen in North America in late 2021.

“American shows might be in November [on the East Coast.] They are confident, they want to do it,” said Rutherford.

As we previously reported, the reunion tour will feature the band’s most popular lineup: Mike Rutherford on bass and guitar, Tony Banks on keyboards, and Collins on vocals. Collins, however, is no longer able to play drums due to extensive nerve damage. Collins announced his retirement from music years ago, but returned in 2015. In recent years, he’s toured arenas with his solo band, singing from a chair. His son, Nic Collins, has been his drummer and will be playing on the Genesis tour as well.
