If there’s one thing you need to know about me, it’s that I love Phil Collins. See tweets from 2013 for further proof:
I am tired of pretending that I don’t think Phil Collins is some kind of musical genius. #philcollinsissomekindofmusicalgenius

And it’s not just me, whenever we’ve discussed Phil Collins on the show, the response is good because… PHIL COLLINS!

SEE! PHIL COLLINS IS A MUSICAL GENIUS.
And now that musical genius is officially out of retirement and touring in 2017. So far, only UK dates have been announced, but my excitement and hope is growing that he’ll come stateside!
In a press conference at London’s Royal Albert Hall, Collins announced that he will play five nights at that venue, as well as selected dates at Cologne’s Lanxess Arena and Paris’ Accors Hotel Arena in 2017. Tickets go on sale on Friday, Oct. 21.
