Phil Collins Announces First Concert In 4 Years

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.
