The legendary British rock band Genesis has confirmed that they’ll be reuniting for the first time in 13 years for a 2020 tour!

The band’s members — Phil Collins, Tony Banks, and Mike Rutherford — made the announcement Wednesday morning on Zoe Ball’s BBC Radio 2 breakfast show. They said they’ll be performing shows across the UK later in 2020.

They’ll be joined by Collins’ 18-year-old son Nicholas on drums and Daryl Stuermer, the band’s longstanding associate, on guitar and bass.

Founding member Peter Gabriel, who left the band in 1975, won’t be part of the reunion.

Prior to the announcement, the band hinted that something was happening with an Instagram post of Collins, Banks, and Rutherford on the band’s page. The post was captioned, “And then there were three…,” an ode to the band’s first album as a trio.

Genesis last performed together in 2007 on the Turn It On Again Tour for their 40th anniversary, which Collins said was supposed to be a final farewell.
