Phil Collins To Perform Unplugged For Charity

Fifteen months ago, Phil Collins appeared at the first Dreaming On the Beach benefit concert in Miami Beach to benefit the Little Dreams Foundation.

While it was first billed as Collins’ “comeback” concert, he later said that he would only be playing three or four songs. On that night, he was also sharing the bill with Laura Pausini, Alejandra Guzman and special guests.

On March 11, Collins will once again take the stage for the organization but, this time, it looks like it will be his first full show since 2010. Being billed as “Phil Collins Unplugged”, the bill, so far, does not have additional artists pointing towards a full evening of Collins’ music.

The show will be at the Fillmore Miami Beach in the Jackie Gleason Theater with tickets available through Live Nation ($378.75 / $278.75 / $153.75).

The Little Dreams Foundation was founded by Collins and his former wife, Orianne Collins-Mejjati, with a mission to “fulfill the dreams of young aspiring talents without financial means to achieve their goals.”

Collins’ last full show was July 1, 2010 at the Montreux Festival in France, the last date on his Goin’ Back tour playing the songs of Motown. Prior to that, he had not performed his solo repetoire since a November 24, 2005 show in Prague although the Genesis reunion tour occurred between those dates.

After the Goin’ Back album and tour, Collins retired to spend more time with family and write, only recently saying he was coming out of retirement although he had no interest in extensive touring.
