In conjunction with the start of their first tour in 14 years, Genesis are releasing The Last Domino?, a collection of what’s described as “the band’s best-loved songs, including their biggest hits and album cuts.” Available as a double-CD and a 4-LP set, the packages (which shares its title with the tour) were released on September 17, 2021 in the U.K. They arrive on November 19 in the U.S.

Order is available now. Scroll down for details and to watch several “behind the track” clips.

From a press announcement: When Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford announced the tour, it became one of the fastest selling of the year…It kicks off on September 20 with two nights at the Birmingham Utilita Arena (U.K.) and they play a total of 16 arena shows through the U.K., followed by an arena tour through North America.

In a band interview broadcast by the BBC on Sept. 9, Collins intimated that this reunion tour would be their last. “We’re all men of our age and I think to some extent it probably is putting it to bed,” he said. “I think, just generally for me, I don’t know if I want to go out on the road any more.”

The album’s press release continues: “The Last Domino?’ is the perfect companion to the tour. Containing 27 songs selected with the band and with a majority being performed on the tour, it is a package that represents their incredible journey as one of rock’s true pioneering bands through to their global dominating hits that has seen them play sold-out stadiums and arenas all over the world for decades. The 4-LP set is housed in a hardback gatefold book-style package, which includes rare and unseen images of the band from their archive and images of the rehearsals of ‘The Last Domino? Tour.’ The evolution of Genesis is unique; their sound developed and progressed throughout their career and with multiple lineup alterations in the early years. The lineup of Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford took shape in 1976.”

And Then There Were Three (1978) was the first album the band released as a three-piece and spawned the single “Follow You Follow Me,” which was their first U.K. top 10 and U.S. top 30 single and proved to be the start of huge commercial global success.

The albums Duke (1980), Abacab (1981), Genesis (1983), Invisible Touch (1986) and We Can’t Dance (1991) followed for the trio, alongside almost constant global stadium tours cementing the band as one of the most successful of all time.

“I Can’t Dance” is about “guys that look good but can’t string a sentence together.”

Genesis have sold in excess of 100 million records worldwide.

The band describes “Land of Confusion” as “a political song about the mess we have landed in.”

Banks, Collins and Rutherford reunited again as a band in 2007 after almost 10 years for the “Turn It On Again Tour,” which went on to be one of the biggest grossing tours of the year playing sold-out stadiums around the world.
