Steve Hackett is renowned as an immensely talented and innovative rock musician. He was lead guitarist with Genesis as part of their classic line up with Gabriel, Collins, Banks and Rutherford, that produced acclaimed albums such as Selling England by the Pound, a favourite of John Lennon. With Steves extraordinary versatility in both his electric guitar playing and his composing, he involves influences from many genres, including Jazz, World Music and Blues. He is equally adept in his classical albums that include renditions of pieces by composers from Bach to Satie, his own acoustic guitar compositions that have gained the admiration of many, including Yehudi Menuhin, and ambitious guitar orchestra albums such as A Midsummer Nights Dream, recorded with the Royal Philharmonic.

Such a good show that we went online at the interval and ordered tickets for next year’s Selling England / Spectral Mornings tour!
Awesome. He gets better and better, the set list is to die for. Firth of Fifth, blood on the rooftops, suppers ready and the musical box.

Superb gig with added dimension with the 41 piece orchestra.Amazing to hear music from the classic Genesis era,as well as solo tracks which aren’t overshadowed in any way.Can’t wait for next year’s tour.
Great concert often a band plus orchestra doesn’t work but this one worked seamlessly with both elements complimenting one another perfectly. The acoustics in the RFH were also superb.

Could have used the backup singers on a few tracks, but it was well worth the price. Almost 3 hrs long! No deviation from Set List.

I was expecting a good show but I gotta tell you I was blown away. Steve Hackett is a guitar master. Backed by a tight and versatile band, Hackett ripped through a variety of solo material and his hit with GTR before taking a short intermission. When the band returned they worked their way through Hackett's Genesis catalog for the next hour and 45 minutes. Brilliant recreations kept the crowd spellbound.
