The Digital Age has done a number on the music business. But old rockers - from Rush to Rod - have brought millions back into the world's concert halls. A Fortune picture portfolio.

GENESIS
Top songs: "Invisible Touch," "Land of Confusion," "In Too Deep"

Essential albums: The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, Invisible Touch, Abacab

Why they rock: Genesis is among the top 30 highest-selling recording artists of all time. In his pre-rock star days, Phil Collins played the Artful Dodger in the original London production of Oliver

Bottom line: This year's reunion tour is expected to gross more than $150 million in the U.S. alone.
