The moment that Genesis fans have been waiting 15 years for finally arrived, as Tony Banks, Phil Collins, and Mike Rutherford reunited for the tour Turn It On Again. Greeted by Phil Collins saying in German, "Vie Sind Genesis" an audience of 48,000 in Hamburg's AOL Arena rocked the night away as Genesis powered their way through a set that spanned the band's repertoire.
The sheer scale of the set for Turn It On Again is a visual feast for fans, with the largest screen ever used at a concert spanning 64m. Genesis is using over 120 Coemar ∞Infinity Wash XL for this tour. The set was designed by Mark Fisher and the lighting show was the work of Patrick Woodroffe.
Woodroffe comments, "Genesis have a long history of putting on ground-breaking light shows and they have set the bar very high in the past. We hope that our team has risen to the occasion, and that this year's offering to the fans will continue the high standard of innovation and spectacle, to which they have become accustomed."
Over 1 million fans got the chance to see the limited run of 22 European concerts in the biggest stadiums in Finland, Denmark, Switzerland, Austria, Czech Republic, Poland, Germany, France, Holland, the UK, and Italy, where the final concert took place in Rome on July 14.
Genesis will tour Canada and the US starting in August.
