Rock veteran Phil Collins is going to perform in Cologne, London, and Paris.
The star, whose hits include In The Air Tonight and Against All Odds, announced his retirement in 2001 following a nerve damage that left him unable to play the drums. He has since recovered dexterity but said he’s unlikely to sit behind the kit on the new tour.
After revealing that he’s planning to go on tour last year, he said: "I think I'll be just singing. I don't think I'll ever be able to play the way I used to.
He then revealed that his 15-year-old son would fill for him on tour.
Explaining why he is coming out of retirement, he said: "I thought I would retire quietly.”
"But thanks to the fans, my family and support from some extraordinary artists I have rediscovered my passion for music and performing.
"I changed my mind. I'm living with my young kids and they want me to go out on the road, do some new things, and there's no reason why not."
Tickets for his comeback tour, which is entitled Not Dead Yet Live, will go on sale on 21 October.
Meanwhile, his memoir, Not Dead Yet: The Autobiography, will be published later this week.
