"I think it's the right time"Banks said. "We are all good friends, we are all mature and ... here we are".
"I will do my best to play some parts of the tour", Phil Collins explained. "I have to start thinking about it seriously, but I've already calculated what I'm going to do and what songs to play."
"We all thought, 'Why not?', Collins said. "It seems a somewhat pathetic reason, but we like mutual company, we like playing together."
Banks added that the trio did not ask Gabriel to participate in the reunion tour, Because "Most of the songs people know came after he left. Peter left the band 45 years ago and has lived as he wanted since then."
"There is a Genesis sound that is still present", said Mike Rutherford. "I missed it, it's nice to play it again."
"It's a good feeling, it's the right time, we can't wait to do it", continued Mike Rutherford. Many of our contemporaries have played a lot, we've done two shows in the UK in the past 28 years. "
On eighteen year old son Nicholas, who will play the drums in ShowPhil Collins said: "He sounds like me and has the same attitude. So it's a good place to start."
On the potential lineup, Collins said: "There are songs that you feel you have to play because the audience would feel cheated if you didn't, then it's about putting together the rest of the material with songs that we haven't played for a long time. But there are some old dogs that won't run." .
The voices of one reunion they have been around since Collins and Rutherford performed together in Berlin last June.
Collins then hinted at the possibility of one reunion: "We remain close friends, so you never know."
Earlier this week, a photograph of the three members appeared on theaccount Genesis official Instagram with the caption: "And then there were three."
