Phil Collins announces Comeback Tour in 2017

Phil Collins is getting back on the road with the "Not Dead Yet" tour. The legendary singer announced the trek Monday, revealing nine dates in Europe in June 2017.

He'll kick off the run in London on June 4, playing five nights at the Royal Albert Hall, before heading to Cologne, Germany for two nights. The tour will end in Paris with two nights at Accor Hotels Arena. Tickets go on sale Friday at 9 a.m.

"It's going to be a romp through my songs that people love," Collins told The Guardian.

Collins announced his retirement from music back in 2011; but told Rolling Stone "I'm no longer officially retired" in October 2015. Since then he's announced an autobiography, Not Dead Yet (out Oct. 25), played the U.S. Open in New York with Leslie Odom Jr, and performed at small charity gala in Miami back in February.

"People ask me, 'When are you going to make another record? When are you going out on tour again?'" Collins told EW earlier this year "And that makes me want to work. I feel, 'Yeah, I'll do that if there's an audience'."

1. I was listening to an old Phil Collins this weekend. It made my driving so much better.

He still has an audience.

2. He certainly does.

He may be a little dated to some, but to me Phil Collins is timeless. He wrote at least one composition for just about any emotion or situation, and always with such harmony and talent. No fillers ever!

Hard to pick a favorite Phil Collins song, but here's mine:

3. One More Night still gets to me in a way not many songs do.

4. Ah, you're a lot like me, In The Wind:

A hopeless romantic.

Here's to us, then. We make the world more interesting, I think.
