Atlantic recording artist Phil Collins has revised the schedule for his upcoming series of concerts at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom. Due to scheduling and production difficulties, the first show, originally slated for June 22, has been cancelled. The remaining shows, on June 23, 24 & 25, will go on as scheduled. Tickets purchased for the June 22 show can either be refunded or will be good for one of the other shows. Those wishing refunds or exchanges should go to their point of purchase or call 800-745-3000.
The Roseland concerts will herald the forthcoming release of Collins’s new album, “GOING BACK,” a deeply personal labor of love that finds the eight-time Grammy winner faithfully recreating the Motown and soul music that played such an influential role in his creative life. The shows will be exclusively devoted to music from the album, along with other classic R&B/pop gems. Supporting Collins will be an extraordinary 18-piece ensemble of musicians and vocalists, including three of Motown’s legendary session players, aka The Funk Brothers.
Due for release on September 28th, Collins’s “GOING BACK” is the 2010 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee’s first new studio album in eight years, and marks the first time in his 30-year solo career that he has devoted an entire project to the work of other songwriters and performers.
