Phil Collins Unable To Perform At First Concert In 4 Years

Phil Collins was scheduled to perform a few songs semi-acoustically last night at a fundraiser for his Little Dreams Foundation, but he ended up not performing after being “overcome by some sort of neurological affliction that he said strikes every now and then,” according to The Miami Herald. It would have been his first show in four years, though he did sing with some Miami schoolkids at a benefit earlier this year. Collins came out at the end of the night and apologized for not being able to perform, and said that he had been with doctors over the past few days and that the crowd “wouldn’t enjoy” him performing based on the sound checks beforehand. A few years ago, Collins said that he had a nerve problem that made him unable to play the drums. He also opened up earlier this year about his struggle with alcoholism that left him with pancreatitis.
