Phil Collins is headed to Hyde Park on Friday 30 June.
The singer’s only European festival performance of 2017 will also be his biggest solo show ever. It takes place three weeks after his five-night run at Royal Albert Hall – which sold out in 15 seconds.
”The reaction from the British public has been overwhelming,” says Collins. “I can’t wait to play Hyde Park and see everyone there.”
Tickets for Collins’ headline appearance at British Summer Time Hyde Park go on general sale at 9am on 11 November.
The open-air performance is part of Collins’ comeback “Not Dead Yet: Live” tour that, apart from London, includes residencies in Koln and Paris.
“I will be playing all of the songs that people love,” the singer promised of his first live shows in 10 years.
With more UK Top 40 singles than any other artist of the 1980s, the Genesis drummer and then frontman made his solo debut with the single ‘In The Air Tonight’ from his 1981 album ‘Face Value’. The success continued throughout the decade with songs like ‘Easy Lover’, ‘You Can’t Hurry Love’, ‘Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now)’, ‘Sussudio’, and ‘Another Day In Paradise’ giving him 3 UK #1 singles and 7 US chart-toppers.
Collins joins the previously announced Green Day at 2017’s British Summer Time Hyde Park, an event that – since its inception in 2013 – has played host to acts like
The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, Kylie, The Who, Black Sabbath, and Taylor Swift.
