PHIL Collins was seen being pushed in a wheelchair before his show in Atlanta, Georgia this weekend.

The 68-year-old British music legend appeared frail just one day before he fell on stage at a show in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The former Genesis drummer and singer was helped into the wheelchair from his chauffeur-driven car by an assistant.

He is defiantly carrying on with his Still Not Dead Yet Live! tour in America despite suffering from debilitating back pains.

On Sunday, the Easy Lover singer suffered a fall at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte.

He fell backwards in his chair while watching his 18-year-old son Nicolas perform a drum solo, according to the Daily Mail.

Video footage shows the audience screaming as the veteran rocker falls flat on his back before he is helped back up.

The In The Air singer bravely carried on with the show and he is still scheduled to continue with his tour. Phil announced his retirement in 2011 after nerve damage left him unable to play the drums, but he later announced he was going back on tour.

The star was then admitted to hospital in 2012 at the height of his battle with booze, prompting fears for his well-being.

Phil has been using a walking stick since he had major surgery on his back in 2015.

Back in 2017, he was forced to cancel his last two London shows after The Sun’s Bizarre column exclusively revealed he had slipped in his hotel and had been rushed to hospital.

The star tripped over a step in his bedroom at his London hotel following his concert and badly gashed his forehead.

Ambulances immediately dashed him to a London hospital for treatment and he was believed to have required surgery on his forehead.
