Phil Collins has announced his comeback concert after six years of not performing live. Collins will be coming out of retirement and performing at the Second Annual Little Dreams Foundation Benefit Gala at The Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater in Miami Beach, FL on March 11th.
Stereogum reports the concert is being billed as “Phil Collins Unplugged,” and a few “special guests” are set to make an appearance. The event is promoted by Live Nation with tickets ranging from $153.75 to $378.75.
In 2014, Collins was actually scheduled to perform at a similar benefit at the same venue, but pulled out citing health issues.
Collins recently told Entertainment Weekly (EW) in an exclusive interview that he is thinking of doing a tour.
People ask me, ‘When are you going to make another record? When are you going out on tour again?’” Collins states. “And that makes me want to work. I feel, ‘Yeah, I’ll do that. S—, if there’s an audience…”
The announcement comes the day that Collins releases his second round of Take A Look At Me Now remastered albums in deluxe editions featuring Hello, I Must Be Going! and Dance Into The Light. It was also announced that Collins will sit down with Dan Rather for The Big Interview on March 1st on AXS TV where he will discuss the remastered albums, working with Adele and other topics.
No other dates have been unveiled at this time. More will be revealed should that information be released.
