Eighties pop band Genesis are reforming a decade after lead singer Phil Collins left the group to focus on a solo career.

Eighties pop band Genesis are reforming a decade after lead singer Phil Collins left the group to focus on a solo career.

Collins, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks will reunite next year to embark on a tour of the US and Europe.

In their heyday, the group sold more than 130 million records worldwide with hits such as Land of Confusion, I Can't Dance and Invisible Touch, and are still one of the top 30 biggest-selling music acts of all time.

A spokesman for the group said: "Genesis were huge in Britain and America and there remains a lot of affection for them.

"And the tour is likely to make them millions."

A friend of Collins said:" The band really want to get it on again,"

"They always remained friends and just thought it was time to begin again, especially since Phil's break-up with (third wife) Orianne has left him with time on his hands."
