Phil Collins was Thursday night and his Still Not Dead Yet tour, at the Goffertpark in Nijmegen, and the critics were of mixed enthusiasm about the show. The lead singer had the whole of the action, spend it in a chair because he’s having trouble with his back and his feet had been.

The AD – ‘elevator music? Yes, of course, but from the highest levels of

“It’s phil Collins on the same day. Not dead yet, that’s true.

(…) He was warming up by Throwing it All the Way in, but even then, the glowing schuifelnummer Follow You, Follow Me.” Elevator music? Yes, of course, but of the highest quality. (…) Not a Mom or a Land of Confusion, alas, the small, Separate Lives, and the inevitability of the Group cover-You Can’t Hurry Love”. Collins is living there, except for the stick, primarily based on his four-six, over and over again in the nick of time from it.”

De Volkskrant, a Three-star

“It would have been given all of the inconveniences, however, quite surprising, a tour designed as a therapy? For Collins, there is mental again in addition to help, and after many years of misery? If that’s the case, then it should be in this community zelfhulpsessie really have to be strengthened. (…) And of course, the songs and sounds are sometimes a little dated, even though it is the version of the Genesis song ” Follow You, Follow Me, ethereal and almost psychedelic.
