I saw some video of a recent show.  It hurts to see him diminished, but he seems to be having a good time.  He's a natural entertainer.

I’m thrilled to be going to see Collins’ concert at The Forum in Los Angeles at the end of this month.  After what he has been through, it’s no surprise he has to sit.  Dave Grohl had to sit through some concerts after a broken foot, so it happens.  With Collins, I think it is characteristic that he is handling his injury this way - rather than hide behind a piano, he knows the crowd is there to see him and he will appear in an honest way.  He’s doing this tour for all the right reasons - he hardly needs the money.  I’m really excited to heart the band, and really curious to see his son on drums.

The remixes of his catalogiue have been a great treat over these last months.  Inspired by the recent release of the PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS collection, I’ve been listening to the Collins produced Eric Clapton release BEHIND THE SUN and I am a bit hooked on “She’s Waiting”.  What an amazing song - Collins’ drums and snare bring one of his best collaborations.

This week’s Mastermind has Peter Gabriel as one of the topics. It also has the Alien films.
Let’s see which one I get more points on. My money is Peter Gabriel as I only like three films with Aliens in them

Hoping for a North American leg of the tour in 2021!

Great to see them playing arenas - Phil has been vocal in the past about
preferring the sound to a stadium, and I agree. My very first concert ever was
Genesis during the Mama tour, and it sounded great in an arena (Spectrum,
Philadelphia)

I couldn't get tickets to the wildly popular Invisible Touch arena tour, but I saw
them later at a stadium for that one. They have only done stadiums for the
remaining two tours - We Can't Dance in the early 1990s, and the 2007 Turn It
On Again tour.

I saw the 2007 show at the Hollywood Bowl - probably the most ideal venue to
be outside. I saw The Who there last year and it was magnificent.

I started listening to them during the Abacab days and eventually back-filled through almost their entire catalog but amazingly I've never heard them live. If they come to the States I imagine it could be pricy considering how long it's been but I will shell out.

Great to see some positive comments about the boys. I've been a fan since 1976's 'A Trick of the Tail' (my first ever album), and I'm unapologetic about it.

For me, their strength was in producing solid album tracks to go alongside the hits (I'm thinking of Ripples, Afterglow, Home by the Sea and Blood on the Rooftops here).

Sadly, they seem to be an easy target for many here in the UK (probably inspired by the attacks on Phil Collins from a certain brothers Gallagher in the late 90's).

As well as seeing them at Wembley, I like to remind people of an Eric Clapton Albert Hall concert in 1989 with Phil and Mark Knopfler in attendance. The setlist included Layla, In the Air Tonight & Money for Nothing, and it's still the best concert I've ever been to...

Craig, did that particular show have two drummers?

Hi Brian,

I'm pretty sure it was Steve Ferrone on the other kit, although I'm starting to doubt the actual date of '89 now (brain getting old). I saw EC at the Albert Hall in 1987, 88, 89 and 90, as well as a couple of times since. I'll have to check my programs!

There was one show in '89 where Collins and Ferrone both played.
Elton John also played a few numbers, as well. I've got the bootleg of
the show. If you were actually there, that was quite a night to
remember.

Thinking about it more, I don't remember a show with them both
drumming and In The Air Tonight being performed. Money For Nothing
or Solid Rock, yes, but not the Collins hit.

Looking at my programs, I reckon it was '87. It's possible that my memory of the four years that I went has blended them together somewhat, so Ferrone's appearance would have been a later one. But the show that stood out definitely featured Knopfler and Collins and Money for Nothing and In the Air Tonight. (Elton John didn't appear on any of the occasions that I went)
