Serious Hits... Live! is the name of Phil Collins' 1990 live album with a CD as well as the DVD video recording of that concert. The songs on the CD version are taken from various concerts during the Serious Hits! tour, though it sounds as if the CD was recorded over one entire concert. It was recorded during the Seriously, Live! World Tour. At the Brit Awards in 1992, the album brought Collins a nomination for British Male Artist.

History[edit]

Instead of providing a live concert experience, they took the approach of putting a "hits only" selection for the album. The album has a very "stadium crowd feel" quality that various other live albums from the early 1990s had.

The live video and DVD version features one entire concert. The concert captures a live performance at Berlin's Waldbühne on 15 July 1990, which Collins has hailed as his best performance due to the energy of the German people after the fall of the Berlin wall. On the final song of the album, Collins thanks the fans in Chicago. The DVD presents an in-depth personal look at his solo concert experience. Special moments include the crowd not allowing the concert to continue with prolonged applause after "Something Happened on the Way to Heaven" and the lighter vigil during "Doesn't Anybody Stay Together Anymore".
