Following Phil Collins‘ announcement that he is “no longer officially retired,” a petition has been launched to try and stop him from touring.
“Phil Collins has announced he is ‘no longer in retirement.’ There is far too much suffering in the world as it is. This must be stopped.”
Presently 2,443 people have signed the petition. We get the feeling they’ll need a few more supporters than that if they plan to get anywhere with it.
Collins recently told Rolling Stone that he was working on a solo album ahead of a comeback tour. He stated “I don’t think I want a very long tour. But I would like to play the stadiums in Australia and the Far East, and that’s the only way to do that. But there’s a part of me that just wants to do theaters, so we’ll see.”
Asked he was considering a Genesis reunion, he responded: “Let’s start with this [solo] bit first. I love the guys. I would just prefer to do this first. For now, let’s just see how this goes.”
