Saying that “it just feels right,” Phil Collins has announced a summer 2019 European tour with concerts beginning June 2. The dates continue his renewed enthusiasm for the road as he has brought his Not Dead Yet Live tour to the U.K., South America and the U.S. so far, and now a return to Europe. Ticket sales were so strong that, on Nov. 29, second dates were added in several cities.

The musician begins the year with a tour of Australia and New Zealand, beginning January 19.

In the November 26 announcement, Collins said: “I have rediscovered my passion for music and performing! It’s time to do it all again and I’m excited… it just feels right.”

A ticket pre-sale begins Nov. 28; general sale starts Nov. 30. Tickets 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.)

Collins, who turns 68 on January 30, has had back surgery as well as hip issues in recent years and now drums only sparingly. (He now sits throughout most of these performances.) His band includes his son, Nicolas, on drums.

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.

On Nov. 27, 2017, Collins announced the first dates of his 2018 tour, with stadium concerts in South America, Mexico and Puerto Rico earlier this year.

Watch Collins sing a Genesis favorite in Mexico City on March 9
