Collins has enjoyed success in his acting career as well. He has appeared in HBO's And The Band Played On and the feature Buster, a film in which he starred in and provided the songs for. He also provided the same-titled song for the hit film Against All Odds. On television, he has guest starred on Miami Vice.
He recently fulfilled a lifetime ambition by going on the road with his own 20-piece big band which made its debut in London's Royal Albert Hall in the company of conductor Quincy Jones and guest vocalist Tony Bennett. The band went on to play seven other European concerts including two shows at the Montreux Jazz Festival.
Collins embarked on his enormously successful solo career after taking a break from being frontman and drummer for the band Genesis, the band he'd been with for 25 years. On his own he has released Face Value, Hello, I Must Be Going, No Jacket Required, ... But Seriously, Serious Hits... Live! Both Sides, the very personal album Dance Into the Light (1996) and most recently his Hits album.
