The No Jacket Required World Tour was a concert tour by the Englishmarker singer-songwriter Phil Collins, which took place in between February 1985 to July 1985, in support of his 1985 album, No Jacket Required & His upcoming albm But Seriously.... The concert and the albums were a prelude to his international success, participating at the Live Aid concert in Europe and North America on 13 July 1985, and his success with Genesis having their highest selling album, Invisible Touch and its corresponding tour, The Invisible Touch Tour.

A television special was recorded in Dallas and aired on HBO, titled No Jacket Required... Sold Out. The broadcast was released as a home video in 1985 with extended footage and the title changed to Phil Collins: No Ticket Required.

Another television special was recorded for Cinemax for a show titled Album Flash, taped in London, England at the Royal Albert Hall.

While on the No Jacket Required Tour, Collins wrote the song "Do You Remember?", which would appear on his next album ...But Seriously. In the US, the song would go to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1990.

His Live Aid performances also received further recognition, notbale for Collins performing at both the Philadelphia and Wembley Stadium Live Aid shows on the same day. Bob Geldof, the collaborator of Live Aid, originally asked Collins through Geldof's first charity effort, Band Aid. Collins provided the drums and was a part of the backing vocals for Band Aid's number one UK hit in 1984, Do They Know It's Christmas?.

Collins first performed with Sting in Wembley, and together they did various songs by both singers. Roxanne, Driven to Tears, Against All Odds, Message in a Bottle, In the Air Tonight, Long Long Way To Go, and Every Breath You Take were the songs that both of them performed. After Collins finished performing, he took a concorde flight to the Live Aid benefit concert in Philadelphia. On the plane, he met Cher, and convinced her to be a part of the event. There, he once again met Robert Plant, who had asked him if Collins would perform with him, Jimmy Page and Tony Thompson in a Led Zeppelin "reunion" of sorts. He first played drums for Layla White Room, and She's Waiting with friend Eric Clapton. Then, Collins performed "Against All Odds" and "In the Air Tonight" again, and finished the night providing backing drums for Led Zeppelin's aforementioned act.


For the tour, Phil retained his usual cast of musicians, including Chester Thompson, Leland Sklar and Daryl Stuermer. The band was nicknamed the "Hot Tub Club".
