Phil Collins is coming to Liverpool as part of his huge 2017 tour

Legendary recording artist Phil Collins has confirmed that he’s coming to Liverpool’s Echo Arena in June as part of his Not Dead Yet: Live tour.

With 100 million record sales to his name, No.1 albums the world over and songs have that soundtracked millions of lives, Phil Collins’ iconic status continues to grow.

His 2017 comeback tour already includes five massive sold-out shows at the Royal Albert Hall, London, and a 65,000 capacity show at Hyde Park. Now, the addition of the single show in Liverpool on 2 June rounds out the artist’s first live shows in 10 years.
