Just Announced: Phil Collins

Posted on 07 July 2017

OUT OF RETIREMENT AND STILL… NOT DEAD YET: LIVE METRO RADIO ARENA, NEWCASTLE SATURDAY 2ND DECEMBER 2017

Night after night on his incredible comeback tour, Phil Collins has introduced his show to the audience by simply saying that he has missed them.

And he wasn't kidding.  After postponing two shows of his recent Royal Albert Hall series until November due to an injury, Phil has decided to keep the celebration going by announcing more live dates for the end of the year.

One of the great British musicians is back performing, having just returned to the stage for his first live dates in 10 years.  His performances have received rave reviews from media and fans alike, with his incredible band storming venues every night, including his 16 year old son Nick taking his dad's place on drums.

"It took just a few moments on stage and singing with the fans to convince me that this was the best idea I've had in years," says Phil of the recent shows, "There's so much love and so much fun.  We decided to share that with as many people as we could."

Tonight, Phil plays a triumphant homecoming gig at the Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park festival in the heart of London to 65,000 fans, after earlier receiving the Icon Award at the Nordoff Robbins Silver Clef Awards.

With 100 million record sales to his name, Number 1 albums the world over and songs that have soundtracked millions of lives, Phil Collins is a legend whose work has received growing acclaim as a new generation of artists have discovered and been inspired by an incredible career.

Artists from Adele, to Pharrell, Lorde, Kanye West and Beyoncé have talked of their love for his music in recent times, since Phil announced his retirement from music in 2011. He last toured in 2007.

"I thought I would retire quietly," said Phil at the time, "But thanks to the fans, my family and support from some extraordinary artists I have rediscovered my passion for music and performing. It's time to do it all again and I'm excited.  It just feels right."

One the most successful artists of his generation, with more UK Top 40 singles than any other artist of the 1980s, Phil Collins came to prominence first as drummer and then as frontman of Genesis, making his solo debut with 1981's album Face Value, containing smash hit single 'In The Air Tonight.'
