Steve Hackett // Tour // CD/DVD Release

October 14th, 2013

Steve Hackett Hammersmith Digi w info.inddOctober will prove to be quite an eventful month for the Genesis legacy. Not only will former vocalist Peter Gabriel be touring the ‘Back to Front’ re-enlivening of his So album, but Steve Hackett will also embark on another leg of his acclaimed ‘Genesis Revisited’ world tour.

Paying tribute to his successful time with Genesis has been a regular feature throughout Hackett’s endeavours. Indeed various Genesis songs written during his time as lead guitarist with the band (1971-77) have been performed alongside his own works across numerous solo tours. Furthermore, Hackett produced two studio albums providing updated interpretations of Genesis material: Genesis Revisited I (1996) and Genesis Revisited II (2012). Since releasing the recent edition, Hackett has chosen to dedicate a solo tour entirely to the successes he enjoyed with the band. This move has clearly proven popular, as Hackett has already toured ‘Genesis Revisited’ extensively across the UK, Europe and more recently the USA. Capitalising on the avid demand Hackett will resume the tour for the following shows:

October 2013
22 Birmingham Symphony Hall
23 Bristol Colston Hall
24 London Royal Albert Hall
26 Manchester O2 Apollo
27 Newcastle City Hall
29 Liverpool Philharmonic
