He is being kept under 24 hour observation and is recovering well. "He has had a fantastic week at his first shows in ten years, can not thank people enough for their warm reaction and is excited to return".
His shows for June 8 and June 9 have been cancelled with a view to reschedule them for November of this year. Collins has already experienced diffiulties walking following surgery done to his back, descibed as "drop foot" according to a post on his official Facebook page. His management said Thursday and Friday night concerts at London's Royal Albert Hall have been postponed until November.
However, the injury will not derail his planned concerts in Cologne, Germany, French capital Paris and Dublin, Ireland, nor his headline set at Barclaycard presents BST Hyde Park on June 30.
The In The Air Tonight and Another Day In Paradise star officially retired in 2002, but announced his return in October previous year. That would be something that I think I should do.
What's certain is that he won't be able to play his remaining two gigs in London - part of his Not Dead Yet tour. Something happened. I can remember, it was on the Genesis reunion tour, around the time of the drum duet, pushing it as we used to. "I'd messed my hips up as well", he explained in 2016.
