In the Air Tonight is the final mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories given to protagonist Victor Vance by avant garde film director Reni Wassulmaier from the Ocean View Hospital in Ocean Beach, Vice City.


Reni has got her fourth sex change and Phil Collins is going to perform his concert. Victor arrives at the hospital in Ocean Beach and is asked by Reni, if he can drive her to the Escobar International Airport because she is now wanted dead by the Mendez Cartel.

Victor takes Reni to the airport terminal avoiding Diego Mendez's goons. Victor quickly drives over to the Hyman Memorial Stadium in Downtown to fight off anybody trying to panic during Phil Collins' concert.

Upon arriving, Phil's manager Barry Mickelthwaite states his fear from Giorgio Forelli's hitmen who will likely try to do something. Victor heads further inside the stadium and spots someone trying to destroy the light-rigs. Victor, forced to leave his guns outside the stadium, fights off every hitman with his fists and Phil successfully manages to perform his concert. Upon the end, Barry states that he has to pay Giorgio the money he owes in order to stop risking his life.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Take Reni to the airport
  • Get to Phil's concert at the Stadium
  • They're cutting a cable! Stop them
  • They're cutting a cable! Stop them


Upon completing the mission you'll get $3,000 and you can purchase a ticket for Phil Collins' concert by paying $6,000 at the stadium anytime. The concert is the complete uninterrupted performance of "In the Air Tonight" without the Vic combat sections.


  • The mission's name is an obvious reference to Phil Collins' hit song, In the Air Tonight, which plays at his concert.
  • Even though Reni has received a sex change to become a woman, she still retains the walking and idling animations of a man.
  • The Forelli hitmen tearing the light-rigs look like members of the Mendez Cartel.
  • As with So Long Schlong, the first part of the mission (driving Reni to the airport) is made safer if you've purchased all the Empire Building sites, rendering the vehicles that spawn outside bulletproof, and transfer Reni into one before heading to the airport.
  • If you look carefully there is a guitarist wearing a Rockstar shirt.
  • If you adjust the brightness in the settings or TV to the highest, at the end of the concert, you'll notice that the stadium is empty.
