Former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett’s total experience continues with an exciting new show!
Following the success of his 2015/16 tour, Steve and his band are returning with a different Genesis/solo set, including several gems from Genesis album Wind and Wuthering celebrating its 40th anniversary, along with big favourites such as ‘The Musical Box’ as well as Genesis numbers never performed before by Steve’s band such as ‘Inside & Out’ and ‘Anyway’.
This spectacular tour will also introduce numbers from Steve’s new album, due out early Spring 2017, with special favourites spanning Steve’s solo career, including ‘The Steppes’, ‘Serpentine’, ‘Every Day’ and never previously performed ‘Rise Again’.
Steve Hackett has released more than 30 solo albums in addition to the 7 he did with Genesis, as well as his work with the supergroup GTR together with Steve Howe of YES. Productive and of a high quality, Steve Hackett’s music is not to be missed!
Musicians playing with Steve for the Spring tour will be Roger King, keyboards; Gary O’Toole, drums and percussion; Rob Townsend, saxes and flutes; Nick Beggs, bass, stick and twelve string and Nad Sylvan on vocals.
Some of the biggest names in music visit the banks of the Tyne this May and June while we also have innovative talks and performances as part of Thinking Digital Arts 2017 & Hexham Gathering returns.
Get ready to put your dancing shoes on as we welcome a stellar line-up for a great night out!
