Genesis Announces Rescheduled London Dates


Genesis has announced their rescheduled London dates. Earlier this month, the group was forced off the road due to an unspecified bandmember testing positive for covid. The band was winding down its UK tour when they announced their final four gigs — Glasgow, Scotland and its three London concerts were postponed.

The band has rolled out the replacement dates for 2022 — hitting London's O2 Arena on March 24th, 25th, and 26th. There's been no word as to a make-up date for the Glasgow show.

Mike Rutherford recently told us that Genesis' group and solo hit-making power almost snuck up on him back in the '80s: ["I don’t think I quite realized — the Mechanics for example — I didn’t realize how much it was doing over here until I came to tour, y’know what I mean? It doesn’t really mean that much. It doesn’t change anything, I mean, the songs are good songs. It was the time, too. Because, y’know, MTV came in, so a hit was such a hit. Y’know, you were on in every bar — y’know, it wasn’t the radio stations — you were on in every bar, every restaurant, every gym. We were everywhere. Almost too much, actually.”] SOUNDCUE (:23 OC: . . . too much actually)
