Collins an­nounces come­back gigs for next sum­mer

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

LON­DON » There’ll be no early re­tire­ment for star singer Phil Collins.

The 65-year-old for­mer Ge­n­e­sis front­man Mon­day an­nounced plans for gigs next sum­mer in Lon­don, Paris and Cologne. The tour will be called: “Not Dead Yet, Live.”

He of­fi­cially re­tired in 2002, but that didn’t last. He last toured in 2007.

Collins told re­porters in Lon­don he ini­tially re­tired to spend more time with his fam­ily but started to drink after his fam­ily split up.

“I’ve changed my mind,” he said of leav­ing the stage for good. “I’m liv­ing with my young kids. They want me to go out on the road and do my thing, and why not?”

Collins says he’s not likely to play drums on tour but might try per­form­ing the in­tro­duc­tion to “In the Air Tonight.”
