English rock band – Genesis – performed Misunderstanding for the first time in 37 years at Chicago’s United Centre, November 15th. Phil Collins and the gang blew cobwebs off the group’s 1980 single from their 10th studio album, Duke, for the first show on the Last Domino? tour’s US leg.
As reports note, Genesis had not played the track since their Mama tour of ’84, before incorporating a segment into a live medley in ‘88. However, frontman Phil Collins did also make it part of his solo gig setlists in 2004. The recent revival of Misunderstanding came during an acoustic section of the band’s Chicago show, according to Setlist.FM.
Genesis were last month forced to postpone their remaining UK appearances for 2021 “due to positive COVID19 tests within the band”. News followed shortly after the announcement declaring that the band will return to fulfil the London dates in March 2022.
The Last Domino? tour, which kicked off in Birmingham on September 20, marks the first live Genesis show in 14 years. Ahead of the UK leg beginning, Phil Collins ruled out any further dates, saying these will be the last Genesis shows ever. The frontman ruled out any further tours from the band, stating that these will be the band’s final shows ever.
Collins had previously said, that “this English and American tour, that will be enough for me”. Genesis will tour around the US before returning to the UK for three gigs in London’s O2 in mid-October. Meanwhile, Phil Collins also spoke recently about his ongoing health battles. He recently confirmed that he will probably never be able to play the drums again due to his health. The soon to be 71-year-old said, “I’m kind of physically challenged a bit which is very frustrating because I’d love to be playing up there with my son.”
