Phil Collins Marks Return To Stage With An Old Favorite
He’s been gone a long time, but as of Friday night Phil Collins is back – and boy, is he ready to make up for lost time. The 66-year-old music legend hit the stage in Liverpool, England for his first show in over a decade, giving fans a taste of what’s to come before Collins and his band embark on an historic five night run at London’s Royal Albert Hall next week and brought along some of his best loved hits – including some that have never seen the light of day as solo performances, like Genesis’ “Follow You Follow Me”.
Fun Fact: Featured on Collins’ 1985 album No Jacket Required, “Sussudio” came about when Collins “improvised” the lyric. While in the studio, he was playing around with a drum machine and the lyric “su-sussudio” was what came out of his mouth.
The moment that took the crowd by the collar and refused to let go, however, came when Collins dusted off “Sussudio” for the first time in 12 years, earning cheers from the audience as they immediately set to clapping, singing, and dancing. One of those songs that makes it damn near impossible to sit still for even a single moment, “Sussudio” turned the atmosphere into a party – if you missed the fun the first time around, never fear, because we’ve got it all right here for you in the video below. Enjoy!
