Tarzan Musical Premiere

UPDATE: Collins has released this statement to temper expectations for his live return:

“I will be performing three or four songs semi-acoustically, and maybe one more with my 13 year old son Nicolas on drums, but that’s all as I am not ready to return to the full concert stage at this time.”

Back in May we saw the long-dormant Phil Collins singing “In The Air Tonight” with middle-schoolers, but that wasn’t a proper Collins gig. This one is: On 12/6 he’ll headline the Dreaming On The Beach Concert at the Fillmore Miami Beach, his first concert in four years. It’s a benefit for the Little Dreams Foundation, the charity he co-founded with ex-wife Orianne Collins-Mejjati, and it will also feature Laura Pausini, Alejandra Guzmán, the Little Dreams band and “special guests.” Read more here.

For fans, this has to be more exciting than Collins writing songs with Adele but maybe not quite as exciting as that rumored Genesis reunion.

  1. This is great news. Phil’s a pro. Good to see he’ll be performing again.

  2. I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, Oh Lord. OWWWOOOOOOOOOO!

  3. Is he still retired as a drummer though?

    Seventies (Hackett era) Genesis is one of the most underrated bands in the history of music, even if Patrick Bateman thinks that they were too arty back then.
