Steve Hackett, as the powerhouse guitarist for one of the most important progressive rock bands ever, has been a guiding influence for musicians and guitarists for over 40 years.
Following the one/two punch of Nursery Cryme & Foxtrot, both driven by the muscular guitars of new member Steve Hackett, Genesis were ready to launch what would become their finest album, Selling England By The Pound.
Easing back on the throttle marginally, and immersing themselves in English whimsy and eccentricity, Genesis delivered just under an hour of delicate prose, wondrous melodies and, of course, the soaring leadlines of Steve Hackett.
Finally, now, 47 years after the album’s release, Steve Hackett will be performing Selling England By The Pound in full in a series of Australian concerts.
“I think (Genesis) really nailed the best of what that band as an entity could have done with that album.” Neil Peart (Rush)
“the definitive Genesis album” Fish (formerly of Marillion)
In addition, in celebration of the 40th anniversary of its release, Steve will be performing his critically acclaimed solo album Spectral Mornings.
And if that’s not enough, Steve will perform selections from his stunning new album At The Edge Of Light, and may even be munificent enough to throw in another couple of Genesis tunes.
Steve’s exceptional debut antipodean tour in 2017 left audiences stunned by the majestic performances by Hackett and his virtuoso band. How do you top that? Come witness the spectacle of Steve’s incendiary 2020’s shows to see how it’s done.
“I’m excited to bring my Genesis Revisited show back to Australia. It was fantastic to play there last time and to visit that amazing country. This time will be a special show, including the whole of Genesis album Selling England by the Pound, celebrating my solo album Spectral Mornings 40th anniversary, plus more! I can’t wait!” Steve Hackett
