A to Z Challenge – 2020 – One More Night

I’m really stretching it here using “One More Night” by Phil Collins for my “O.”  Phil is one of our favorite performers and although he has had some pretty big health issues, I was excited to see that he was touring.  In looking at some of the clips from his tour, I saw that he sat for the entire show and sang from his seat.  My husband was thinking that it would be a tame show and decided he didn’t want to go so our son, Jeff, went with me instead.  We had a blast.

I went with this pretty paper collection.

Here’s the first page.  Before the show they were flashing pictures of Phil from his younger days.  He really has been around a long time, both with Genesis (my “G” in 2017), and solo.  My son was indulgent of his mom and took the concert selfie with me.   

 Here are a few of the pictures I’m working with.  I’m excited to scrap the ones of Phil and his son, who is the drummer for the band now.  How cool is that!

Son, Nick, on the drums.

One of the few times he stood during the show.

He definitely has aged but he can still belt it out, even sitting! 

Here’s the setlist from that show.  If you look closely, “One More Night” was not even on the list but given that his show was the “Not Dead Yet” tour, I think he wants one more night!  

In fact, he did do another tour which we didn’t see but it was called the “Still Not Dead Yet” tour – lol.  It was last year at the new Chase Center they built in San Francisco and from what I hear it was another great show.  Even more interesting, there was talk before the coronavirus hit that Phil was going to get back together with Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks and do some Genesis shows in Europe.  I’m sure those plans have been changed now and Peter Gabriel was not mentioned to be with them, a fact that disappoints my husband.  If they come around again, I may have to go with my son!

Here’s a bit of “You’ll Be In My Heart” from that night.

And just in case you’re a Phil Collins fan, I would recommend his book, also titled “Not Dead Yet.”
Whew.  Not as detailed and definitely not complete but man I thought I was going to have to skip some and that would have made me sad.  We are on to the letter “P” tomorrow and then we have a day to recoup.  I just may make it after all!

    “One more night” works for me, Janet. It is nice to see Phil Collins is/was touring again. You made me smile pointing out “Not Dead Yet” tour. I will check out his book.

      I thought “Not Dead Yet” was a pretty good title considering how ill he had been. When he came around the next time and it was the “Still Not Dead Yet” tour I really had to laugh.

    Still sounds great! That he’s still touring gives me hope he’ll hit the Midwest after this ordeal we’re living thru has ended.

    I was such a huge Phil Collins fan back in the day. I think I owned almost everything that he put out. And then for some reason my interest waned. I’m glad that he’s out there still and did If my memory serves me correct, he is passing the drumming torch on to his son.

      Thanks. That is actually my son, but yeah, I think he’s cute – LOL, and thanks for the compliment if I look like a 30-year-old! The book was really good and he seemed to tell it like it was, not holding back.

      Hi Laurie. It was a very good book. I did not realize all the wives he had had or that he was touring and writing songs for so long. He told a bit about the songs too and how they related to different aspects of his life.
