Genesis postpone Glasgow and London tour dates after positive COVID tests within band


share close

Genesis have been forced to postpone the final four shows in their tour after positive tests within the band.

The remaining shows of the band’s The Last Domino? tour were due to be played at The SSE Hydro in Glasgow on Friday night and London’s O2 Arena on 11, 12, and 13 October.

The rock band, which includes Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford, said they are “devastated” by the development and are working to reschedule the shows “as soon as possible”.

But the band, known for songs including I Can’t Dance and That’s All, said the safety of the audience and their touring crew takes priority.

A statement said: “Following guidance and advice from the government, it is with huge regret that the final four shows of Genesis’ Last Domino? Tour… have had to be postponed due to positive COVID-19 tests within the band.

“We are working to reschedule them as soon as possible and will announce the new dates through our website and social media channels as soon as possible. All tickets will remain valid and ticket holders will be contacted by their ticket providers.

“This is a hugely frustrating development for the band who are devastated with this unlucky turn of events. They hate having to take these steps but the safety of the audience and touring crew has to take priority. They look forward to seeing you upon their return.”

The Last Domino? Tour is the band’s first time on the road since their Turn It On Again world tour in 2007.
