Phil Collins Tour 2019! Phil Collins announced his first major North American tour in 12 years. The 15-date “Not Dead Yet, Live!” launches October 5th in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and concludes October 28th in Los Angeles. The tour, titled after his 2016 memoir Not Dead Yet, is billed as a celebration of Collins’ career.
There are only 15 shows, all of them in October. He’ll begin at Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and conclude in Los Angeles. In between, Collins will hit Washington, Philadelphia, Boston, Toronto, Newark, Brooklyn, Montreal, Cleveland, Columbus, Minneapolis, Chicago, Oakland and Las Vegas. A complete list of dates, cities and venues is below. More information is available at philcollins.com. Collins last played a full-length concert in the U.S. on June 25, 2010, when his tour in support of the covers album Going Back wrapped up in New York. After that, Collin spent four years in a self-defined retirement, in part due to long-standing back issues that limited his ability to play the drums. In 2014, however, Collins began a tentative return to the stage by singing two songs at his sons’ school. He followed that up two years later with a seven-song set at a fundraiser for his Little Dreams Foundation.

Phil Collins Biography
Phil Collins’ status as one of the most successful pop and adult contemporary singers of the ’80s and beyond was probably as much a surprise to him as it was to many others. Balding and diminutive, the Genesis drummer-turned-vocalist was almost 30 years old when his first solo single, “In the Air Tonight,” became a number two hit in his native U.K. (the song was a Top 20 hit in the U.S.). Between 1984 and 1990, Collins had a string of 13 straight U.S. Top Ten hits.
