Phil Collins – MGM Grand – Las Vegas NV : October 27th 2018

Definitely worth the wait to see Phil Collins. I have loved his work since the early days of Genesis and have wanted to see him in concert for a long time. Tonights show at the Garden Arena at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas was absolutely awesome. Phil Collins’ voice was incredible and he sounded exactly like I remember form all those albums.

He play a great set of songs ranging from of course his Genesis material like Throwing It All Away and Follow You Follow Me. He opened with an interesting choice, that I didn’t think was that popular however it was one of my favorite songs when it came out…Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now), then went in to some great solo music Another Day in Paradise and I Missed Again. Of course one of the crowd favorites was In the Air Tonight which was very powerful with his very talented 17 year old son Nic slamming it on the drums. My favorite song of the night was one in which Nic played piano and Phil sang You Know What I Mean…very nice, mellow song for father and son to perform together.

It was a quick trip down to Vegas for the day, but very much worth it, and another great artist that I was finally able to see live in concert.
