LONDON, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- The British rock group Genesis is set to tour together for the first time in 15 years when the band launches its European tour in Finland next summer.

With the band scheduled to launch its "Turn it on Again" tour at the Olympic Stadium in the Finnish capital of Helsinki June 11, The Daily Mail reported that the group will continue on across Europe for a series of profitable stadium concerts.

With original group members Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford, the newly reformed band will play shows throughout next summer including a show at Britain's largest stadium, Twickenham Stadium.

After replacing original lead singer Peter Gabriel with drummer Collins in 1975, Genesis went on to worldwide fame and totaled more than 130 million albums sales prior to the band's final dissolution in 1998.

In conjunction with Genesis' tour next year, EMI Records will make reissues of the "Land of Confusion" rockers' 14 studio albums available for purchase, said the paper.
