Genesis evolved from a progressive art rock band - with complex song structures, elaborate instrumentation, and theatrical concerts (with 23 minute songs such as "Supper's Ready" and the 1974 concept album The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway) - to a more pop oriented sound during the 1970s and 1980s. Genesis' change of musical direction to accessible music with melodic hooks gave them their first #1 album in the United Kingdom, Duke, and their only #1 single in the United States, "Invisible Touch".
Initially fronted by Peter Gabriel, Genesis have changed personnel several times over their history. Collins took over from Gabriel after the latter's departure from the group in 1975. After over two decades of being the band's frontman, Collins left the group in 1996 and was replaced by former Stiltskin singer Ray Wilson for the 1997 album Calling All Stations. Due to the commercial failure of the album, and after three decades of activity, the band announced that they were on an indefinite hiatus.
In October 2006, the BBC announced that members of Genesis, including Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks, had agreed to reunite for a world tour and were exploring the possibility of recording new material.
