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 non 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, onto stage came Chris Hayward. The front man settled down behind one of two drum kits and 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.
