Phil Collins ‘Not Dead Yet’ Tour will Hit U.S. this Fall
Phil Collins is hitting the road this Fall and will be hitting North America for the first time in 12 year at select cities this October. That's the good news.
Phil Collins announced his retirement in March of 2011 via his website and stated it was time to focus on his family. There were also health issues at the time that effected his drum and piano playing that were the result of spinal surgery in 2009. Speculation about his return began to percolate in 2013 when he told German media that he was again interested in performing again and that included more work with Genesis, though nothing developed from that. However, he did perform "In The Air Tonight" and "Land of Confusion" in 2014 at his son's school after they asked him.
In 2015, after remastering his eight solo albums, Collins announced that following October that he was out of retirement and planned not only writing a new album but also hitting the road for a tour.
Phil Collins announced this week a limited tour that will hit 15 cities in North America this October. Now for the bad news: he does not currently have a date scheduled in Colorado. These things can always change. Here the itinerary for his "Not Dead Yet" tour:
