No mention of Peter Gabriel joining in? That's what I would really like to see.

According to Billboard :
The trio, comprised of Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks, acknowledged they had discussions a couple of years ago with former members Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett about touring behind a complete performance of the 1974 album "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway."

But after Gabriel said he couldn't commit due to obligations with a still-unfinished album, Collins, Rutherford and Banks decided to go out alone for the first time since 1992. "This is a separate thing," Collins said. "But 'Lamb' may still happen in a few years time."
It could indeed be a few years as Peter Gabriel is not usually one to rush out an album.

all ready got tickets...

Should be a great show, I've all ready got myself tickets. There was some talk about Peter Gabriel joining them in the future, but not for this tour. I'm looking forward to it either way. Anyone else going?

ME! I got my tickets, and am so excited, I can barely contain myself. It's pretty much all I can think about these days. Unfortunately, although I was online on the TicketMaster site at 10:00 am sharp on Friday, the best seats I could get were 30 rows back in section A1. I'm a little bummed about that (especially considering they were $227 each!), but that disappointment quickly disappears when I think that I'm finally -- after two decades of wanting it -- going to see a Genesis concert! But now comes the long wait . . . Oh well, I'll soon have the first Genesis SACD box set to assuage the impatience.

By the way, why is this in the radio section? If it weren't mentioned in the pipeline, I never would have seen it.
