What to expect from Phil Collins’ 2018 concerts
Phil Collins’ 2017 tour marked the first time the singer had toured since his 2006 reunion with Genesis.
While the ‘Easy Lover’ hitmaker hasn’t released any new material for the new tour, he told Rolling Stone he would likely play some songs that he hadn’t performed live before to give fans something fresh.
After the announcement, Collins performed a number of live television shows, proving the sexagenarian still has what it takes to wow audiences with his vocals.

You can catch a glimpse of Nicholas performing the famous drum fill from ‘In The Air Tonight’ at the US Open in 2016.
Nicholas said of the big moment in an interview with Rolling Stone, "Everyone knows that fill. But to be honest, it's not that hard to play. Still, doing it at the US Open was very nerve-racking."
