Well, I guess things are slowly getting back to some normalcy, and hopefully things will pan out globally because Genesis just announced “The Last Domino?” Fall 2021 North American tour! I’m really tempted to see this concert but we’ll see how things go, I guess I could always sell tickets for it if I’m not ready to go to shows and concerts just yet. Either way, this will be awesome if it works out as planned.
Here is the press release:
Genesis announced their highly anticipated return to North America for the first time in 14 years with The Last Domino? tour dates that will have Tony Banks, Phil Collins, and Mike Rutherford, playing major cities across the U.S. and Canada this November and December 2021. Kicking off at Chicago’s United Center on November 15, 2021, the group will be joined by Nic Collins on drums, and the band’s long-time lead guitar and bass player Daryl Stuermer.
Genesis The Last Domino? North American Tour 2021 will be one of the first concerts at the brand-new UBS Arena in Belmont Park, New York with the Friday, December 10, 2021, show. Opening this fall, UBS Arena is a $1.1 billion world-class multipurpose arena next to the Belmont Park racetrack. In addition to being the new home to the famed New York Islanders Hockey Club, UBS Arena is one of the few venues in the world designed with a sharp focus on music. With its timeless and classic design, the venue will bridge its iconic past with today’s advanced technology and amenities. The state-of-the-art arena will create one of the best and most unique experiences for both artists and audiences and will deliver an unmatched live experience with clear sightlines and premier acoustics.
The Last Domino? North American Tour 2021 marks the first time Genesis has performed stateside since 2007’s Turn It On Again: The Tour which went on to be one of the biggest grossing tours of that year playing sold-out arenas and stadiums around the world. One of the most successful and legendary rock bands of all-time, Genesis has sold more than 100 million albums with numerous top 20 hits including “Invisible Touch,” “In Too Deep,” and “Turn It On Again,” while also being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2010.
