Rock band Genesis announced plans for their reunion tour yesterday after a break of 15 years.
Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks are reforming for a series of money-spinning stadium gigs next summer.
And while other bands get back together because they need the money, Collins insisted Genesis have no such motive.
"I think we are all loaded enough not to worry about where the next million or two is coming from," the star told a press conference in London.
Collins - who has an estimated fortune of £300 million but is in the process of a costly divorce from third wife Ori-anne - said he had simply missed his former bandmates.
"I just felt now was the right time to have a go at it," the 55-year-old explained.
"I left the band and I did some things on my own, and the guys carried on. I used to listen to odd bits and pieces at home and I missed the camaraderie a bit.
"We all get on, we've seen each other many times since I left, and we would bring it up every time we sat down
together. Sometimes we talked ourselves out of it and finally we decided this was as good a time as any to do something."
The 20-date tour will kick off in Finland on June 11 and end with a free gig in front of the Colosseum in Rome on July 14.
There will be two British dates: Twickenham Stadium in London on July 7 and Old Trafford in Manchester on July 8.
A series of US dates will follow.
The band will be playing a selection of hits from their back catalogue.
