Phil Collins’ highly-anticipated comeback tour Not Dead Yet: Live! began in the UK and Europe last June, with his 5-night show at Royal Albert Hall in London selling out within 15 seconds.
He also sold out all five arena shows in Germany and France, along with successfully headlining a 65,000-capacity show at Hyde Park.
Collins’ backing band will feature longtime touring members – guitarist Daryl Stuermer (his former touring mate in Genesis), keyboardist Brad Cole, bassist Leland Sklar and percussionist Luis Conte, along with a horn section and backup vocalists, and his 16-year-old son Nicholas will round up the band on drums.
“I thought I would retire quietly,” Phil Collins says of his return. “But thanks to my 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.”
Not Yet Dead: Live! is titled after Phil’s 2016 memoir of the same name and is a celebration of his life’s work.
