This October, Phil Collins will tour North America for the first time in 12 years. The North American leg of Collins’ "Not Dead Yet Tour" spans 15 dates kicking off October 5th in Ft. Lauderdale.
The "Not Dead Yet Tour" is the culmination of a multi-year comeback for Collins that has also included an extensive reissue campaign along with the penning of a memoir, also titled, Not Dead Yet. In March 2016, he first returned to the live stage at a benefit concert in Miami, and in August, he sang "In the Air Tonight" and "Easy Lover" during the opening ceremonies of the US Open. In October, he performed "In the Air Tonight" with accompaniment from The Roots on The Tonight Show. The tour kicked off in Europe in June 2017 and has seen Collins perform a mixture of solo staples and Genesis classics. Earlier this year, he brought the tour to South America.
As has been the case for past performances of his "Not Dead Yet Tour," Collins’ North American leg will feature guitarist Daryl Stuermer, keyboardist Brad Cole, bassist Leland Sklar, percussionist Luis Conte, and Collins’ 16-year-old son Nicolas on drums along with a horn section and backup singers

Glad to see Phil stick it out. The rap has been a bit negative when some heard he wanted to continue performing but like it says... “ I’m not dead yet”! I also would like to see all the guys perform as Genesis 1 last time with Phil and Peter sharing Vocals.
