Phil Collins is out of retirement. You can see a video of him performing In the Air Tonight and Land of Confusion with a Miami high school band below.
In November 2013 it was announced that Collins will be returning in 2014 doing some live performances, talking even about possible Genesis reunion.
“I have started thinking about doing new stuff,” Collins told German media back then. He made these comments at the Stuttgart premiere of Tarzan, a stage musical based on Disney’s Collins-soundtracked cartoon. “[Maybe playing] some shows again, even with Genesis. Everything is possible. We could tour in Australia and South America. We haven’t been there yet.”
Collins, 62, hasn’t played live since 2010, and not with Genesis since 2007. According to earlier interviews, he abandoned the drums after sustaining major damage to his spine. “I was going to stop drumming anyway,” he told Rolling Stone in 2010. “I don’t miss it.” He also confessed to having suicidal thoughts, exacerbated by his third divorce.
