A few days following a tease from British rock veteran Phil Collins late last week, it was announced on Monday morning that the former Genesis drummer and singer will be touring North America for the first time in 12 years this coming fall. The 15-date tour is set to start on Oct. 5 in Ft. Lauderdale and run until the end of the month with a final concert scheduled for Oct. 28 in Los Angeles. Tickets for select shows on the upcoming tour will be going on sale starting next Tuesday, May 15, at 10 a.m. local time, and can be purchased by clicking here.
As Consequence of Sound reports, the “Not Dead Yet” tour (named after his autobiography) will feature Collins performing alongside his longtime guitarist Daryl Stuermer, keyboardist Brad Cole, bassist Leland Sklar, percussionist Luis Conte, and his 16 year old son Nicolas handling the drumming duties.
Collins returned to performing in 2017 with his first full-length concert in seven years taking place in the British city of Liverpool. He would go on to also perform a run of shows in Ireland and the U.K. throughout the rest of the summer and into the fall months, but not before having to put a hold on his residency at London’s Royal Albert Hall after suffering a "severe gash" on his head which would require stitches to heal. His first performance in the U.S. after a number of years came back in 2016 when he sang at the U.S. Open tennis tournament in New York City (see video above), and then appearing on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to perform his timeless hit "In the Air Tonight" alongside the show’s house band, The Roots.
