GenesisLast Domino? tour kicked off in Birmingham on September 20, beginning a run of shows through the UK and North America that will end on December 16. That show, in Boston, may well be the last one Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks ever play together.

“This English and American tour, that will be enough for me,” Collins tells Tom Doyle in the new issue of MOJO (available to buy here). “We’re a good age,” adds Rutherford. “I’ve been doing it for over 50 years. It’s a long time. I’ve loved it. But at the same time, you can’t get too lost in work. And it’s a different music world out there. It’s very foreign to me.”

MOJO caught up with Genesis as they were rehearsing for The Last Domino?, and hears their stories stretching back over 50 years, with a focus on how the band evolved following the departure of original lead singer Peter Gabriel in 1975. “I don’t remember anything other than resilience,” Collins tells us. “I don’t think anybody thought that was the end. It was ‘That was the end of that’, there was a decision to carry on, made by all of us.”
