One of the great British musicians is back performing, returning to the stage for his first live dates in ten years.
June 2017 will see Phil Collins perform a five night residency at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall, as well as shows in Paris and Cologne.
With 100 million record sales to his name, number one albums the world over and songs that have sound tracked 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.
Phil made his live return at an event for his own Little Dreams Foundation last year, before performing two of his biggest hits at the opening of the US Open tennis in New York in August, inspiring him to announce his first headline tour in a decade.
“I thought I would retire quietly,” says Phil of his return, “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.
He followed this with an extraordinary run as a prolific hit maker. With three UK number ones, Easy Lover, You Can’t Hurry Love and Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now), as well as seven US Number ones and global smashes including One More Night, Separate Lives, Two Hearts, Another Day In Paradise, I Wish It Would Rain Down, Both Sides Of The Story and Dance Into The Light to name but a few.
