Phil Collins Announces First North America Tour In 12 Years

Phil Collins is bringing his Not Dead Yet! tour back to North America. This October the pop icon — a personal favorite of Stereogum founder Scott Lapatine — will play 15 shows from coast to coast, dipping into Canada twice along the way. According to a press release, his band will include his 16-year-old son Nicolas on drums in addition to guitarist Daryl Stuermer, keyboardist Brad Cole, bassist Leland Sklar, percussionist Luis Conte, and a horn section and backup singers.

Collins retired from touring in 2002, but he has been gradually returning to the stage in recent years. He toured Europe and the UK last summer, although some shows were delayed due to Collins falling and hitting his head.
