Craig Blundell (Steven Wilson, Pendragon) will be on drums & percussion - he was voted by Modern Drummer and Rhythm Magazine readers as one of the top progressive and forward thinking drummers in the world...... Steve’s autobiography, A Genesis In My Bed is published on 24th July. Steve talks candidly about his early life, his time with Genesis, and in particular his personal relationships with the other four band members, with great insight into the daily goings on of this major rock band. NOTES TO EDITORS Steve Hackett joined Genesis at the beginning of 1971 and gained an international reputation as the guitarist in the band’s classic line-up alongside Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford and Phil Collins. Steve’s intricate guitar work was a key element of Genesis’ albums from Nursery Cryme (1971) to Wind And Wuthering (1977) including the classic Selling England By The Pound. After leaving Genesis at the end of 1977, Steve’s solo career, which now spans more than 30 albums, has demonstrated his extraordinary versatility with both electric and acoustic guitar. Steve is renowned as both an immensely talented and innovative rock musician and a virtuoso classical guitarist and composer and this was recognised in 2010 when he was inducted into the Rock Hall Of Fame. He has also worked alongside Steve Howe of YES in the supergroup GTR. Steve’s compositions take influences from many genres, including jazz, classical and blues. For his later studio works The Night Siren (2017) and At The Edge Of Light (2019) Steve has explored the influences of world music. Recent tours have seen Steve celebrate his time with Genesis including a spectacular 2018 tour in which Steve realised a long-held ambition to perform the works of Genesis live with his band and an orchestra. Reviews from Steve Hackett’s most recent Genesis Revisited Tour ‘the night’s prog feast.. was Selling England’ ‘ which allowed the guitarist’s band to fully showcase their talents...’ ‘for one evening at least it was fantastic to dance with the Moonlit Knight once more.’ Simon Carter - The News Portsmouth ‘Hackett's guitar effortlessly carves a path through the songs mixing melodic lines with experimentation and flat out rock...’ ‘The individual personalities of the band also shine throughout...’ Stuart Avis -The Brighton Magazine ‘a great riff, great lyrics and another guitar solo to die for...’ ‘the magic seems never-ending...’ Alan Jones – Getreadytorock ‘complex time changes and elaborate melodies were recreated by Hackett’s superb band with verve and skill.’ ‘Hackett may well be the best guitarist around. Oh, and a great light show too. Obviously.’ S Copeland - Brighton Argus “This is a consummately highly talented group of musicians, possibly the best working band currently playing anywhere in the world. Seriously.” Paul H Birch - Ramzine...
