Phil Collins will do a comeback tour next year.
The 'Another Day in Paradise' hitmaker announced he was leaving the music industry in 2011 in order to focus on his family and his health but has agreed to play a five-night residency at London's Royal Albert Hall next June.
And his run of shows won't just stop there as he's also decided to play gigs in Paris and Cologne afterwards.
Speaking at a press conference held at the venue, which featured a Q&A hosted by Jools Holland, on Monday (17.10.16), he said: ''I thought I would retire quietly but thanks to the fans, my family and support from some extraordinary artists I have rediscovered my passion for music and performing. It's time to do it all again and I'm excited.''
Phil - who was the former drummer of Genesis - announced he was retiring from music five years ago but has made various live appearances - including an event for his own Little Dreams Foundation and a performance of two of his biggest hits at the opening of the US Open tennis tournament in New York - at public events over the past two years.
However, his last official music tour was in 2007.
Phil's new memoir 'Not Dead Yet: The Autobiography' will be published later this week and tickets for his small European tour will go on sale on October 21.
Phil Collins' 2017 tour dates are as follows;
June 4-9: Royal Albert Hall, London, England
June 11-12: Lanxess Arena, Cologne, Germany
June 18-19: Accor Hotels Arena, Paris, France
