In the post, Collins was seen sitting on a piece of the band’s equipment backstage. Here is what she wrote in the caption: “Tonite marks the end of an era. To have witnessed this last show was truly the memory of a lifetime and an event I shall hold in my heart forever. Endlessly grateful doesn’t begin to do it justice. So much love was left on that O2 stage and an even bigger amount shared between an audience who didn’t want it to end.”

Collins continued, explaining how proud she is of both her father, whom she called an “inspiration,” and her brother Nic, who performs with the band.

“Thank you [Genesis] for the memories, thank you Dad for being such an inspiration and thank you [Nic] for making me the proudest sister there is. 50 years of songs later and still generations more to celebrate you long after this tour has finished,” the Windfall star wrote.

In a video Collins posted from the concert, Phil can be seen playing the tambourine for the large crowd, and hyping up fans while waving his hands in the air. Collins has spoken openly about his inability to play the drums any longer due to health problems, and his need to sit down while providing vocals on tour.
