Global music legend Phil Collins is set to make his much-awaited return to Australia with his 'Not Dead Yet: Live!' tour.

Phil Collin’s highly-anticipated comeback tour 'Not Dead Yet: Live!' began in the UK and Europe last June, with his 5-night show at Royal Albert Hall in London selling out within 15 seconds. He also sold out all five arena shows in Germany and five arena shows in France, along with successfully headlining a 65,000-capacity show at Hyde Park. With his South and Central America tour just completed and a North American tour scheduled for October 2018, 'Not Dead Yet: Live!' has received both fan and critical acclaim, with The Guardian saying, “Collins’ voice slips into gear, and a run of great songs sets the hall alight with excitement”, while Irish Independent exclaimed “…pop legend Phil Collins proved he could still deliver…”, and The Sheffield Star reported, “…he started with a standing ovation and finished with one that almost brought the house down.”

The hit-maker’s backing band will feature longtime touring members—guitarist Daryl Stuermer (his former touring mate in Genesis), keyboardist Brad Cole, bassist Leland Sklar and percussionist Luis Conte, along with a horn section and backup vocalists. Phil Collins’ 16-year old son, Nicolas, rounds up the band on drums, walking in his father’s footsteps with a “show-stopping performance” set to “send the crowd into ecstasy” as enthused by The Daily Mirror.

“I thought I would retire quietly,” says Phil of his return, “But thanks to the fans, my family and support from some extraordinary artists I have rediscovered my passion for music and performing. It’s time to do it all again and I’m excited. It just feels right.”

Starting out as a drummer-turned-reluctant-frontman in the 1970s, Phil Collins took Genesis from beloved rock group to one of the biggest bands in the world. He made his smashing global solo debut with 1981’s 'Face Value' and the album’s hit single 'In The Air Tonight'—both of which topped the charts around the world and went multi-platinum in Australia. He followed this with multiple chart-topping hits and 7 Top 10 Australian singles including 'You Can’t Hurry Love', 'Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now)', 'One More Night' and 'A Groovy Kind Of Love'.

Phil Collins is definitely a generational icon and cultural legend whose work continues to influence and inspire fans, critics and fellow artists such as Adele, Lorde, Pharrell, and Beyoncé. Throughout his almost 50-year career, he has sold over 280 million records, has won seven Grammy Awards and an Oscar among other numerous accolades, has had more UK Top 40 singles than any other artist of the 1980s, 20 Platinum albums and seven Top 10 singles in Australia.

'Not Dead Yet: Live!', titled after Phil Collins’ 2016 memoir of the same name, is a celebration of his life’s work.
