The newly reunited rock band Genesis have announced a massive free concert to take place in Rome.

Up to 400,00 fans are expected to attend the concert at Rome’s Circo Massimo on July 14.

As previously reported on, Genesis are to embark on their first European tour in fifteen years.

Entitled “Turn It On Again,” the shows kick off at the Olympic Stadium, Helsinki on June 11 and the free finale will take place in Rome.

Over 800,000 tickets have so far been sold for the tour which will call at twelve countries en route.

The concert in Rome will not be ticketed, and fans will be admitted on a first come, first served basis.

Logistical problems from embarking on a tour of this size means Genesis have had to slightly reschedule two previously announced shows.

The show in Austria will now take place one day later than originally planned, and their concert in Prague has a change of venue. All original tickets remain valid.

The full changes are:

Linz, Austria, Gugglestadium (June 19)
Prague, Czech Rep Strahov Football Stadium (20)

Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford will be joined on stage by long-time Genesis sidemen, Chester Thompson on drums and Daryl Stuermer on guitar.

Coinciding with the Genesis tour, EMI Records will be re-issuing 14 Genesis during the year. The first reissues out on April 2 are:
“A Trick Of The Tail” (1976), “Wind & Wuthering” (1977), “And Then There Were Three” (1978), “Duke” (1980)and “Abacab” (1981).
