Phil Collins is to return to Ireland after 12 years with a show at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on June 25.
Collins will play a mix of new and his old greatest hits on the night. He has inspired future generations like Adele, Lorde, Kanye West and Beyonce. In his career in music, he has sold over 100 million records.
On his return at Little Dreams Foundation last year he commented on his retirement from the music industry in 2011 by saying, “I thought I would retire quietly. 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.”
Collins was the drummer then frontman of Genesis, then going on to releasing a solo debut record Face Value in 1981. Now, he has released a memoir titled Not Dead Yet: The Autobiography. A selection of his The Singles are available on 2 CD, 3 CD, 5 LP and digital download from Atlantic Records.
Tickets are from €89.50 via Ticketmaster.
