Peter Gabriel has announced that he and the “classic lineup” of Genesis will be reuniting.

Gabriel quit Genesis in 1975, and the last time all five members played together was in 1982 at the Milton Keynes Bowl in England (see video below).

Don’t get carried away just yet, because this isn’t exactly what fans have been hoping for: the reunion is specifically for a documentary being produced by the BBC.

But hey, we’ll take what we can get, right?

The feature length documentary will include the participation of Gabriel, Tony Banks, Phil Collins, Steve Hackett and Mike Rutherford.

According to

The film recounts an extraordinary musical story, exploring the band’s songwriting as well as emotional highs and lows, alongside previously unseen archive material and rare performance footage across their entire career.

Rolling Stone magazine reports:

The project….will trace the band’s evolution from their early prog days to their transitional period following Gabriel’s departure (and Collins taking over as frontman) to their radio-friendly commercial success in the Eighties.

“Genesis: Together and Apart” has had no official air date announcement yet.
