Phil Collins will play live once again.

Collins has long been retired from performing, mostly avoiding the stage since a Genesis reunion tour in 2007. But he’s just announced a string of solo concerts.

“I’ll play these shows and then I’ll have a lie-down,” said Collins of his decision to return (via NME). “I’m old-school. Touring used to be like going to war: it went on so long, you didn’t know when you’d come back. But now, I can do it all in three weeks.”

Collins will play a short run of dates next summer including five shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall as well as gigs in Germany and France.

Collins does not plan on playing drums for these shows, his son Nicholas will handle those duties.
