Phil Collins once again performed from a chair, as he took to the stage for his Not Dead Yet tour in Berlin on Friday, after undergoing multiple surgeries on his back.

The music icon, 68, delivered another triumphant show as he took to the stage in Germany, after he was previously forced to reschedule his tour following a fall in November 2017.

The Against All Odds hit-maker cut a casual figure as he belted out his hit songs, clad in a black hoodie and matching trousers.

The Oscar winner looked in his element as he passionately performed, surrounded by his band and backing singers.

Phil has been performing from a chair for the last couple of years and, not letting his ailments get in the way, he has further dates lined up in Europe throughout June.

The Against All Odds hitmaker announced his comeback tour in October 2016 after coming out of retirement.

The musical icon had planned to kick off his return with five nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall with tickets for the shows selling out in 15 seconds.

But following a fall on the way to the bathroom a year later, the British singer was forced to cancel the shows and reschedule them for November.

A statement was released at the time, which read; "Phil suffers from "drop foot" as a result of a back operation which makes it difficult to walk.'

Phil kicked off his Australian leg of the Not Dead Yet tour in Brisbane last month and two months before that, he toured around America following a ten-year break.

Meanwhile, Phil and his wife Orianne, 45, famously announced they were reconciling in 2016, eight years after their shock £25 million divorce settlement.

She has also suffered serious health woes and suffered a paralysing back injury in December 2014 following an op to treat a slipped disc in her back.

The jewellery designer filed a criminal complaint against the Swiss surgery who treated her after she was left in a wheelchair for some years.

Speaking to Swiss website, Le Matin, at the time, Ms Collins said: 'On December 16 I had an operation for a slipped disc in my neck.

'Afterwards, I woke up paralysed. I had absolutely no feeling in my whole body, from my head to the tips of my toes.'
