“I guess after tonight we’re all going to have to get real jobs,” Collins joked at the end of this concert, which was scheduled for late last year.
From Friday’s gig. There’s no better band in my life and I will miss them so much. Here’s #carpetcrawlers quite honestly a classic that babies should be forced to listen to so they grow to love “real” music #O2Arena #genesis @PhilCollinsFeed @WorldofGenesis @genesis_band pic.twitter.com/DpFk6IcNQh

It should be remembered that Phil Collins’ health problems began in 2007, as part of the Genesis reunion tour, when he ended up with a dislocated vertebra in his neck. This led to nerve damage in his hands, forcing him to give up drumming. Added to this was a domestic accident in 2017.
In addition, in the final concert he was peter gabrielwho had not been part of the band since 1982.
