Formed in 1967 by five students at the elite charterhouse school in Surrey, England, the band was named Genesis by school alumnus and "Everyone's Gone To The Moon" hitmaker Johnathan King. Who recorded the band's debut album by 1971 and the release of their third album. "Nursery Cryme" the lineup had settled on founding members Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, and Mike Rutherford, guitarist Steve Hackett and drummer Phil Collins. Genesis was in the vanguard of the progressive rock movement, and the flamboyant costumes and theatrics of frontman Gabriel helped make the band a popular live act, earning much music press coverage in the process. The group's popularity continued to grow over three futher albums. But in 1975 Gabriel left to pursue a solo career. After a fruitless search for a new singer, Collins took on vocal duties, and the 1976 album "A trick Of The Tail" outsold all previous albums combined. The following year, the departure of Steve Hackett reduced the band to a trio. Gradually, a more commercial sound success. By 1987, Genesis had topped the U.S. charts and sold out four nights at Wembley Stadium. The band's popularity was boosted by the concurrent solo success of Phil Collins, who topped the U.S. singles chart three times in 1987 alone. During a lenghty break, Rutherford formed Mike + The Machanics, a side project that soared to the top of the charts with "The Living Years" Genesis reconveined for 1991's "We Can't Dance" When Collins let the band in 1996, Rutherford and Banks briefly recruited singer Ray Wilson, but the band was soon put on Hiatus. In 2007, Collins, Rutherford and Banks reunited for the hugely successful "Turn It On Again" tour- but following the bnad's 2010 induction into the rock and roll hall of fame, it looked like the final chapter had been written when Phil Collins announced his retirement. But earlier this year, the trio announced tour dates for late 2020, with Phil's son Nic taking over on drums due to his Dad's medical issues. It's thought that the tour will bring Genesis to American shores in early 2021.
