[edit] Appearance in Vice City

Phil Collins is the only major celebrity to play a significant role in the Grand Theft Auto series as himself and not as a caricature or parody of himself. Phil appeared in Vice City circa. 1984 with his manager, Barry. At that time, Phil was touring Vice City, while getting suspicious of his manager's activities and the increasing crime in the Vice City area. He is only heard singing 'In the air tonight' during one mission and on the radio. Phil has several missions that are taken through Reni Wassulmaier. His missions are Kill Phil, Kill Phil Part 2 and In the air tonight.

Phil Collins arrives to Vice City with his manager, Barry Mickelthwaite for a concert by helicopter. When Vic arrives in a bulletproof limo, being chased by Forelli goons, Phil is immediately suspicious that Barry never mentioned the high crime rate in Vice City (although most can be attributed to Vic himself) and the trio in the bulletproof limo escape to Phil's hotel.

Vic enters the Hyman Memorial Stadium to kill several goons who are trying to kill Phil Collins. Phil himself is arriving soon to do a sound test.

It's finally showtime for Phil, but Vic spots activity up in the rafters, and it turns out to be Forelli hit men trying to cut the rafters. They plan for the rafters to land on Phil Collins, while he is singing his popular song 'In the Air Tonight'.
