The hitmaking edition of Genesis — Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford — announced Wednesday North American dates for their first tour in 15 years.

The 13-city “Turn It On Again” tour kicks off at BMO Field in Toronto on Sept. 7, stopping in East Rutherford, N.J. at Giants Stadium on Sept. 27 and Los Angeles at the Hollywood Bowl on Oct. 12.
