Phil Collins and Genesis aren't far away from embarking on their upcoming UK tour, however Phil Collins has revealed details about his health.

Appearing on TV alongside bandmates Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks, Phil confirmed that it would likely be the band’s last tour together due to his declining health and the band getting older.

Phil mentioned that he was 'physically challenged' and finds it 'frustrating' because he’d like to be playing the drums alongside his son on the tour.

"I’m kind of physically challenged a bit which is very frustrating cause I’d love to be playing up there with my son," Phil told BBC Breakfast.

Phil’s son Nicholas Collins will be joining Genesis on the road as part of the band and will be playing drums for the entirety of the UK tour.

When asked if he’d be doing any drumming on tour, Phil explained that it’s no longer possible for him to hold drumsticks.

"No, I’d love to I mean I can barely hold a stick with this hand. So, there are certain physical things which get in the way."
