Phil's Genesis Turn It On Again

Genesis Turn It On Again Rock superstars Genesis are hitting the road again... for the first time in 10 years.

The group - Phil Collins, 55, Mike Rutherford, 56 tomorrow, and Tony Banks, 56 - will reunite for a money-spinning world tour. Last night a music biz source said: "Genesis were massive in Britain and America and there remains a huge amount of affection for them. The tour will make them millions."

Genesis - who met at Surrey public school Charterhouse in the 1960s - first rose to fame as a progressive rock act fronted by Peter Gabriel. He left in 1975 and the band replaced him with Collins, already their drummer. They became one of the biggest rock acts in the world with hits like Turn It On Again and Invisible Touch.

Collins left to go solo in 1996 and the band battled on for two years before announcing an "indefinite hiatus".
