On Saturday, Phil Collins performed with Genesis for the last time. It was the last stop on their "The Last Domino?" Tour and took place at London's O2 Arena. He was on the stage the entire time with bandmates Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks and performed the show sitting down due to health issues. His son Nic Collins played the drums in his place.
Phil addressed the crowd, saying, "Tonight is a very special night. Of course, we're playing in London. It's the last stop of our tour, and it's the last show for Genesis," noting, "It's difficult for us to believe that you still came out to see it. I guess after tonight we've all got to get real jobs."
Genesis' original frontman Peter Gabriel was even in attendance for the final show and Phil acknowledged his presence during the concert joking that Peter was the one yelling to hear "Supper's Ready."
Post show, Phil's daughter Lily Collins posted on Instagram celebrating her dad's career. "Tonite [sic] marks the end of an era. To have witnessed this last show was truly the memory of a lifetime and an event I shall hold in my heart forever," adding, "Endlessly grateful doesn’t begin to do it justice. So much love was left on that O2 stage and an even bigger amount shared between an audience who didn’t want it to end." She continued, "Thank you @genesis_band for the memories, thank you dad for being such an inspiration and thank you @nic_collins for making me the proudest sister there is," she continued. "50 years of songs later and still generations more to celebrate you long after this tour has finished..."
