…he’s making his comeback!

Last I reported that Phil said he’s done with music and never returning…and now…he’s setting himself up for a full blown comeback!

Phil Collins made his claim to fame as the lead singer of the rock band Genesis and most people know him as the guy who sings “In The Air Tonight”, but he’s seriously one of the best voices I’ve ever known in music and I love him 😀

Phil lives in Miami now in the mansion formerly owned by Jennifer Lopez that he purchased this summer for $33 million! Don’t we all wished we were his roommates! lol

PC just had major back surgery, but while he’s relaxing at home this week, he announced to the press: “I’m no longer officially retired. The horse is out of the stable and I’m raring to go.”

There hasn’t been a new album from Mr. Collins since 2002 but there was a Genesis reunion tour in 2007. Rest assured, the man is on a mission to release not only a new album, but to go on tour in support of it as well!

According to him: “My kids are now 10 and 14 and they want to see what their dad does. They were in nappies when I was last on the road. They love my music and I’d like to take them out so they can enjoy it.”

Aren’t they adorable?!

So we get it, he’s a family guy, but what about Genesis?? Phil said to the press: “I love the guys. I would just prefer to do this first. For now, let’s just see how this goes.”

So it’s solo first, and possibly a rock band reunion to follow! Sounds great to me! I can’t wait to have Phil back in action! He’s meant to sing 🙂

He’s in a really happy place now and he’s really ready to show his kids what their dad does! I love his motivation to get back out there! How sweet!

Congrats on your comeback Phil! You rock!!!

Phil Collins makes a special appearance

Oh yeah! THAT guy! (He’s on the left) LOL 😀

So it just so happens that Phil Collins made his first performance since he announced his retirement in 2011 and he hasn’t performed in public since 2010!

This performance was last week at Miami Country Day School in Miami, Florida where his two sons attend middle school!

miami_country_day_schoolLooks like one heck of a middle school!

Phil performed two of his biggest hits with the middle school band! 🙂

#HowAdorable

Mr. Collins gave a performance of 2 songs: “In the Air Tonight” and “Land of Confusion”.

Before the show, Phil said: “I was nervous you know. I’ve been doing this all my life but how good can it be? How good can it be tonight? All of these kids came up to me yesterday and were very pleasant and nice and polite and made me feel like part of the band.”

Without further ado…here is Phil’s first live performance in 4 years:

He did a lovely job and the band sounded great! 🙂

I guess I got so lost in the music news shuffle that I didn’t know that Phil Collins retired, yet he did it in order to be a full-time dad. I have no complaints now that I know his reason 😀

And apparently he agreed to perform only because one of his sons asked him…so we all have his son to thank! HAHA

Since I’m so young…I wasn’t introduced to Phil Collins until I watched a movie called Tarzan from my friends at Disney. Phil was in charge of the soundtrack and did and amazing job.

Listen to “You’ll Be In My Heart” here:

Now I want to watch Tarzan! HAHAHAHA

Phil’s return to the stage came just days before Steve Perry of Journey performed for the first time in two decades!!! And surprisingly he sounded very, very good!!!

Check it out:

Thank you Phil for the long-awaited performance and whenever you want to come out of retirement…WE’RE READY!!!
