Earlier this year, Genesis announced that their postponed The Last Domino? tour finally would kick off in Ireland and the band’s U.K. homeland this September.  Now the reunited trio has revealed dates for a North American leg of the trek.

The outing, which features 14 confirmed dates, gets underway on November 15 in Chicago and is mapped out through a December 15 concert in Boston. Among the other major cities the tour will visit are Washington, D.C., Montreal, Toronto, Detroit, Cleveland, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

Genesis also will play two shows in the New York City area — at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan and at the new UBS Arena in the suburb of Elmont, New York. The trek will mark the first time Genesis has played the U.S. and Canada since its 2007 Turn It On Again tour.

Tickets for the concerts will go on sale to the general public on May 7, while a pre-sale will begin on May 5. Tickets will be sold through Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan program, which you can register for now through this Sunday, May 2, at 11:59 p.m. ET.

As previously reported, The Last Domino? tour will feature Genesis’ classic trio lineup of Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks, joined by Collins’ son Nic on drums and the group’s longtime touring guitarist, Daryl Stuermer.

The Ireland and U.K. portion of the trek, which originally was slated to take place in late 2020 before being delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, will launch with a September 15-16 stand in Dublin, followed by 17 U.K. shows, winding down with a three-date London engagement, October 11-13.
