Phil Collins has announced he will play Ireland next year.

Phil Collins will return to Ireland for the first time in 12 years as he announces an Irish concert for 2017.

The In the Air Tonight singer will take to the stage at the Aviva Stadium on June 25th.

Collins (65) will perform all of his greatest hits as part of his comeback tour, Not Dead Yet.

The announcement follows five sold out dates at the Royal Albert Hall, London, as well as one date in Hyde Park.

Tickets, from €89.50 including booking fee, will go on sale this Tuesday, 20th December at 9am from Ticketmaster.ie

Following his retirement from music in 2011, Collins said "it's time to do it all again."

"I thought I would retire quietly," he said.

"But thanks to the fans, my family and support from some extraordinary artists I have rediscovered my passion for music and performing. It's time to do it all again and I'm excited.  It just feels right."

Collins, who was the lead singer in the rock band Genesis, last performed in Ireland at The Point, Dublin, as part of the First Final Farewell Tour in 2005.
