|Genesis concert chronology|
The A Trick of the Tail Tourwas a concert tour of the United States, Canada and European countries by English rock band Genesis. This was the first tour after Peter Gabriel left the band, and the only one with Bill Bruford on drums.
"A lot of the band thought he could sing better than I did anyway," remarked Gabriel of Phil Collins, who took over lead vocals. "The singing side he could handle, but I don't think he enjoyed singing some of my more obscure lyrics."
The tour began on 26 March 1976 in London, Ontario, Canada and ended on 11 July 1976 in Luton, England. Shows in Glasgow and Stafford were filmed for Genesis: In Concert (1976).
