Fifteen seconds: that's how long it took to sell for Phil Collins to sell out five Royal Albert Hall gigs and seriously disappoint anyone with slow reaction times and a serious case of Philophilia. Luckily, though, music’s most famous disliker of jackets has just announced that he’s doing (hem hem) one more night.
He’s just announced his biggest ever solo show – a headline slot at the British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park next year, or as the promoters are calling it: ‘another day of paradise’. Given how quickly tickets went for the Albert Hall shows, it’s probably worth being poised to book when they’re released at 9am on Friday morning. It’ll be worth the rush. If you’re successful, you’ll get an incredibly rare chance to see Mr Collins live. Plus you get to send the following tweet: ‘I’m in the (open) air tonight’. Thank us later.
