Phil Collins takes a big tumble while performing live, gets straight back up again

music news 01/10/2019

There must have been something 'In The Air Tonight' as legendary singer Phil Collins was performing on his Not Dead Yet tour in the United States (the same tour which saw Collins in NZ at the start of this year).

While the singer is normally pretty limber for his age, while he was in between songs he decided to sit down for a breather side of stage to take in the ambience and watch his son's epic drum solo.

But, Phil's momentum as he went to sit down saw him go flying backwards from the seat and take a tumble onto the ground.

Luckily Phil's stage team and crew was there to swoop in and make sure he was all okay.

Glad to hear you're okay, Phil! Having a fall can be very scary!
