Phil Collins and Genesis have cancelled their Glasgow and London tour due medical related issues.

According to the information gathered,
most members of the band group contracted the dreadful coronavirus, and this led to the cancellation of the tour

In a statement shared by Phil, Genesis said: “Following guidance and advice from the Government, it is with huge regret that the final four shows of Genesis’ Last Domino? Tour (this evening (8/10) at Glasgow SSE Hydro and 11, 12, 13 October at The O2 in London) have had to be postponed due to positive COVID-19 tests within the band.

“All tickets will remain valid and ticket holders will be contacted by their ticket providers. This is a hugely frustrating development for the band who are devastated with this unlucky turn of events.”

“We are working to reschedule them as soon as possible and will announce the new dates through our website ( http://genesis-music.com ) and social media channels as soon as possible,” the statement continued.

“They hate having to take these steps but the safety of the audience and touring crew has to take priority. They look forward to seeing you upon their return.”

Phil, apparently, has not been in his best form of health as he sat down throughout the performance period.

He told The Guardian: “I don’t do anything at all. I don’t practise singing at home, not at all. Rehearsing is the practice.

“These guys are always having a go at me for not, but I have to do it this way. Of course, my health does change things, doing the show seated changes things,” he added, explaining how he didn’t feel him having to sit down got “in the way” of the show.

“But I actually found on my recent solo tours, it didn’t get in the way; the audience were still listening and responding. It’s not the way I would have written it, but it’s the way that it is.”
