Former Genesis man had not performed live since his retirement in 2011
Phil Collins made a surprise appearance at his sons’ Miami school last week, performing ‘In The Air Tonight’ and other songs for pupils.
Collins appeared at Miami Country Day School and shared the stage with the school’s middle school band at a spring music concert, reports the Miami Herald.
Collins reportedly told the crowd that he was nervous playing his first show since retiring in 2011. The singer performed his hit singles ‘In The Air Tonight’ and ‘Land Of Confusion’ in front of the students, including his sons who attend the school in Miami Shores. Orianne Collins Mejjati, Collins’ ex-wife and mother to his sons said he performed because one of his sons asked him to.
Earlier this year Collins revealed that he is working on new music with Adele for her next album. He claimed to have not really heard of the singer but that he was writing new music with her having been impressed with her voice and level of success.
