The Duke Tour was a 3-month tour orchestrated by the English progressive rock band group Genesis.[1][2] The tour followed the release of their 1980 album, Duke, which was well received by both critics and fans alike[3]. The tour began in March of 1980 in Paignton, England and ended on June 30th the same year in Saratoga, New York.

It was the band's fourth tour since the departure of singer Peter Gabriel, the second tour since the departure of guitarist Steve Hackett, and the band's second tour featuring the three-man formation of Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks and Phil Collins augmented by session musicians Daryl Stuermer (guitar) and Chester Thompson (drums).

The 103 city tour saw the band begin to play at big stadiums like Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto and Coliseum Arena in Oakland, while still playing at small theatres like Orpheum Theatre in Boston and during their UK leg. The tour overall was generally like by critics, mainly commenting on Collins' and Thompson's drumming preformance as well as Rutherford and Stuermer's guitar playing[4], with a mixture of fans at the concerts from hardcore fans, to younger fans attracted by the "radio friendly material and videos."[5]

While younger and hardcore fans enjoyed the tour, some disliked how the band not only steered away from a large majority of Gabriel-era songs like The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, Supper's Ready, and Watcher of the Skies, but also disliked the band's "toning down the theatrics of their stage act"[4] and how they "relied more on the strengths of their music than their special effects."[4]
