The legendary Phil Collins returns to the stage in 2017 – and we’ve got all the details

Stepping out of retirement (which he’d previously announced in 2011), Phil Collins will bring his live show back on the road with a string of dates across Europe.

One of the best British musicians ever, Phil Collins will play a five-night residency at the Royal Albert Hall next June, along with further dates in Paris and Cologne.

With 100 million record sales to his name, No.1 albums the world over and songs that have soundtracked millions of lives, Phil Collins is a legend whose work has received growing acclaim as a new generation of artists have discovered and been inspired by an incredible career – artists like Adele, Pharrell, Lorde, Kanye West and Beyoncé have all talked of their love for his music in recent years.

Phil made his live return at an event for his own Little Dreams Foundation last year, before performing two of his biggest hits at the opening of the US Open in New York in August, inspiring him to announce his first headline tour in a decade. He last toured in 2007.

“I thought I would retire quietly,” says Phil of his return, “But thanks to the fans, my family and support from some extraordinary artists I have rediscovered my passion for music and performing. It’s time to do it all again and I’m excited.  It just feels right.”

The Not Dead Yet tour flies into London’s Royal Albery hall on 4 June 2017, followed by two nights in Cologne and a further two in Paris.

Phil’s long-awaited memoir, Not Dead Yet: The Autobiography, will also be published this week, after reissuing all of Phil Collins’ studio records throughout this year, a career-spanning selection of hits, The Singles, will be available on 2 CD, 3 CD, 4 LP and digital download from 14 October.

Tickets for the Royal Albert Hall dates go on sale via Ticketmaster.co.uk at 09:00 on Friday 21 October.
