Farewell after nearly four decades:Mike Rutherford, left, Daryl Stuermer (one of the band’s touring members), Phil Collins and Tony Banks will launch the North American leg of their tour Friday in Toronto.

After the North American leg of the group’s reunion tour opens tonight in Toronto, Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford will play what they say will be Genesis’ final U.S. concerts. Then, as their hit goes, that’s all. “Basically, this is the last time we are doing it,” Collins says.
