I would like to know whether Phil Collins will be touring the U.S.A. as part of his Not Dead Yet Tour 2017? There are rumors that Phil said his Not Dead Yet Tour would bring him to the United States.
The answer to this question is no. As of the time writing this article, which is on January 24, 2017, Phil had not made any plans to include the United States in his 2017 Not Dead Yet Tour. If you are therefore a fan of Phil Collins living in the United States, then it is rather unfortunate you might not be able to see your favorite singer perform in the United States as part of his Not Dead Yet Tour. While there have been a number of rumors that Phil’s Not Dead Yet Tour will send him to the United States, these rumors are all false.
There are two reasons why I am so confident of this. The first reason is obviously the fact that Phil himself hasn’t said he would be touring the United States as part of the upcoming Not Dead Yet Tour. The second reason is simply because the Not Dead Yet Tour is purely a European concert tour, which means the tour doesn’t include any countries outside Europe. Currently Phil will only be touring 4 European countries during the Not Dead Yet Tour. These countries are: England, Germany, France and Ireland.
The highly anticipated tour officially kicks off on June 4, 2017 at the Royal Albert Hall in London, England and ends on June 30, 2017 at Hyde Park in London, England.
In concluding this post, let me quickly shed some light about the reports that Phil’s alleged upcoming Not Dead Yet Tour in the United States. The truth of the matter is that on October 26, 2016, Phil actually talked about concerts in the United States during an interview with CBS’ Anthony Mason at 92nd Street Y (92Y) in New York City during which he told an audience it would only be a matter of time before he and his band visited the United States to perform. But that was all the multi Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter said with regard to performing in America in the near future.
