Full Show Friday | Genesis In Germany 2007

Four years back Phil Collins of Genesis revealed he was suffering from a painful spinal injury that prevented him from playing the drums. In 2012 Genesis keyboardist Tony Banks told an interviewer the band was finished. Apparently Collins is starting to feel better as he told The Guardian he’s “thinking about” making a return to music, going on to say, “[Maybe playing] some shows again, even with Genesis.” While Collins’s comments are only the first step towards a possible reunion, we wanted to use the opportunity to shine a light on Genesis’s incredibly successful 2007 tour.

Nearly 40 years after Genesis first formed, Collins, Banks and Mike Rutherford announced the Turn It On Again World Tour that wound up visiting 20 cities in Europe and North America. The setlist for the tour mixed material from throughout the band’s illustrious career including the Peter Gabriel Era, the band’s more proggy stuff and the pop-heavy material of the mid ’80s. Chester Thompson did most of the drumming, but Collins did get behind the kit on occasion.

On June 27, 2007 the tour visited Dusseldorf, Germany for a show that was broadcast in HDTV. The entire broadcast is available on YouTube and we present it today as our Full Show Friday selection:
