This show had an amazing impact at The Pavilion in 2022 and we are proud to have the Seriously
Collins show back for 2023. Led by a charismatic frontman with stunning vocals, Seriously Phil
Collins has amazed audiences worldwide! Chris was the front man for the award winning Phil Collins
Tribute Band at the 2016 National Tribute Awards. Featuring highly experienced professional
musicians, Seriously Phil Collins is the ultimate tribute.
This lively none stop show guarantees you a truly amazing experience both musically and visually.
The band performs some of Phil Collins biggest hits such as “In The Air Tonight”, “Sussudio”, “You
Can’t Hurry Love”, the very memorable “Easy Lover” and many many more. They also feature the
top hits from Genesis, from Invisible Touch, Land of Confusion, In Too Deep and Turn It On Again.
As the audience settled down for the start of the show and onto stage came Chris Hayward.
The front man settled down behind one of two drum kits then launched into a solo…When
Hayward began to sing, his resemblance to the soulful Collins vocals was uncanny. I closed
my eyes. It sounded exactly like him.
The highlight of the set for me was the seminal 'In the Air Tonight'. When Hayward moved to
the drums to play that famous 'da-dum da-dum da-dum da-dum dum dum!' the hairs stood up
on the back of my neck.
After the set came to a close with 'Take Me Home', the audience rose to give a standing
ovation. Talking to people on the way out, the verdict was unanimously positive. Hayward is
vocally as close to the real thing as you can possibly get.
