Steve Hackett Issues Report From 2019 Tour

Unlike many of his peers’ rekindled flames, Steve Hackett‘s “Genesis Revisited” project doesn’t show any signs of dimming after a regular tours and regular live releases as their result. The secret to the success of this endeavor is each of Steve’s concert trek having a concept, a theme that allows Hackett – and his fans – not focus on the staples of the veteran’s repertoire but introduce deep cuts to the set, while offering an excuse for leaving out some aficionado’s favorites. That’s how it was in 2019, when the guitarist was celebrating the 40th anniversary of his "Spectral Mornings" album and also performing GENESIS classic “Selling England By The Pound” in its entirety.

The tour ended with a show at London’s “Eventim Apollo” – formerly known as “Hammersmith” – on November 29th, which was recorded for posterity and will be issued on September 25th, 2020 as a 2CD/DVD package, a usual format for Steve Hackett’s on-stage documents. Titled simply “Selling England By The Pound & Spectral Mornings – Live At Hammersmith” and featuring Steve’s brother John on a couple of cuts, the set will run like this:
