Being honest, I thought the same when I couldn't get tickets for them in 2007. But I reckon you're right, if this tour goes ahead, it probably will be their last tour.

I did manage to see Phil Collins on his Not Dead Yet tour at the Albert Hall a couple of years back, so that was at least something. The poor bloke had to be helped on and off stage, and sat on a barstool through-out, so maybe he should have renamed it "Not Dead, but Nearly" tour.

I was at the show that made the news. He fell right out of that chair in Charlotte, NC.

I’m not a fan of live albums at all so I wasn’t familiar with the 2007 setlist until today. Holy shit, if they play a set like that I’ll be in heaven. Forty minutes of that 2007 setlist was pre top 40 Genesis. I probably would have driven 500 miles to see them in Pittsburgh if I had known they were going to play those songs.

The When In Rome DVD and Live Over Europe CDs, are both great tracklistings. I'll admit Phil was probably a much better singer on the Way We Walk tour though.

Do you think Phil will play the drums a little on this tour? I know he said he’s going to when he can but he also said he wanted to play the drum fill on In The Air Tonight on his last solo tour.

After seeing him at the RAH, I doubt it.

Depends if there's any recovery available to him from his ongoing conditions.

Well, as to be expected, March 2020 become the end of gigs for a very long time, and sadly, five of the shows I had booked were cancelled outright, including my first times seeing David McAlmont (Something I'd been meaning to do for years) and Levellers. Also kiboshed was the Green Day/Manics show that was taking us to Helsinki for the first time - postponed to this year but then cancelled altogether.

I got a ticket for the Manic Street Preachers in Glasgow, just a few days before the Genesis concert over there.

I guess we'll see in a few months if I can even enter the UK :shock: :lol:

Having just booked three more shows today, I also have to say... I went to my first live entertainment in 450 days on Sunday (Russell Howard @ HOMEground, Manchester) and it was just so wonderfully joyful to be surrounded by other people watching someone perform again. Honestly, folks, if you haven't yet done it after over a year of lockdowns, you're in for a treat.

Updated schedule for me, then...
