Phil Collins announced today (May 7) his Not Dead Yet, Live! tour is coming to North America this October for 15 shows. The limited engagement by the classic rock legend runs from Oct. 5-28. (See dates below.)

Collins has had back surgery as well as hip issues in recent years and now drums only sparingly. (The 66-year-old now sits throughout most of these performances.) His band includes his son, Nicolas, on drums, veteran bassist Leland Sklar, longtime guitarist Daryl Stuermer, keyboardist Brad Cole, and percussionist Luis Conte, along with a horn section and backup singers.

Tickets for the general public go on sale May 15 and will be available here and here.

After testing the waters in 2016 with a couple of brief live performances, Phil Collins announced in October 2016, his Not Dead Yet tour of the U.K. plus five nights each in Paris, France and Cologne, Germany, his first extended time on the road as a solo act since 2004-2005. (The tour name is derived from Collins’ 2016 autobiography, Not Dead Yet.)

The veteran musician began his comeback on June 2, 2017 in Liverpool but after just four dates, he suffered a serious fall in his London hotel room, causing him to postpone several dates at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

Last Nov. 27, Collins announced the first dates of his 2018 tour, with stadium concerts in South America, Mexico and Puerto Rico earlier this year.
