AND THE STORY CONTINUES...
Steve Hackett is renowned as an immensely talented and innovative rock musician. He was lead guitarist with GENESIS when they produced acclaimed albums such as Selling England by the Pound (a favorite of John Lennon).
With GENESIS, Hackett's guitar playing produced some of the most memorable moments, from the sensitivity of his acoustic sound on “Horizons” and “Blood on the Rooftops” to the dramatic rock guitar solos of “Firth of Fifth” and “Fountain of Salmacis.” As he embarked on his solo career he developed his exceptional range, pushing musical boundaries into exciting areas, exploring unchartered depths, and utilizing sounds and instruments from the four corners of the globe.
Since 2013 with the reintroduction of his album Genesis Revisted, Hackett has re-ignited the passion, drama, and sheer musical mastery with his highly acclaimed tours which span not only the splendid years of Genesis and their classic line up with Gabriel, Collins, Banks, and Rutherford, but also a vast repertoire of his highly successful solo career which sprang to life with magical and mysterious debut album Spectral Mornings in 1979. 2019 saw the peak of Hackett’s performances with the sell-out tour combining the entire albums of Spectral Mornings and Selling England by the Pound, together with gems from his other solo works, most notably from his latest album At the Edge of Light. Reviews from this tour show Hackett to be arguably at his peak of his career.
And now for 2022, following the postponements caused by the COVID crisis, Hackett is proud to tour the GENESIS live album, Seconds Out, which was recorded from their concert at the Palais de Sport in Paris, in June 1977. As is familiar with all Hackett’s tours, this show will commence with a select variety of material from his extensive solo career, which will set the scene for the magnificence of Seconds Out … all live on stage.
Supported by some of the best musicians on the planet, this tour promises to surpass Hackett’s 2019 successes.
