Phil Collins Return To Music Will Not Include Touring

(Classic Rock) Phil Collins has said he's not planning to tour even though he's come out of retirement. But he'd still like to play a number of concerts, and he's in the very early stages of working on an album of new material.

The former Genesis frontman and drummer last year announced he's changed his mind about ending his career, and later discussed the possibility of work with Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford again - while also saying that a reunion with Peter Gabriel was unlikely.

Collins, 65, tells Consequence Of Sound: "This thing is accelerating a little bit quicker than I would like it to. I have said that I would like to do a few shows, and now people are saying, 'You're going back on tour.'

"But I'm not going to go back out on tour. I like the rhythm of my life. It's very important to be with my kids - I do not want to go back on the road. Same thing with the record. People are saying I'm making a record, and I'm not. I haven't written a song yet. Things have been elaborated upon to make a better story, but I'm not sure how that will take shape yet."
