STEVE HACKETT Announces 'Genesis Revisited: Foxtrot At Fifty + Hackett Highlights' North American Tour

March 21, 2023

Prog rock legend Steve Hackett will revisit his stellar work with GENESIS when he launches the North American leg of his "Genesis Revisited: Foxtrot At Fifty + Hackett Highlights Tour" in the fall (which will be predated by a tour throughout Europe in the spring).

He said: "I'm thrilled to be bringing my 'Genesis Revisited: Foxtrot At Fifty + Hackett Highlights' tour to the USA and Canada in the autumn, and very much look forward to seeing you all then!"

As advertised, the show will feature the 1972 GENESIS album "Foxtrot" performed in full, plus additional fan favorites. Long considered one of the classic progressive rock releases, "Foxtrot" spawned such all-time great GENESIS tracks as "Watcher Of The Skies" and the over-20-minute-long epic "Supper's Ready".

Hackett joined GENESIS at the beginning of 1971 and gained an international reputation as the guitarist in the band's classic lineup alongside Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford and Phil Collins. Hackett's intricate guitar work was a key element of GENESIS's 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, Hackett's solo career, which now spans more than 30 albums, has demonstrated his extraordinary versatility with both electric and acoustic guitar. Hackett is renowned as both an immensely talented and innovative rock musician and a virtuoso classical guitarist and composer and this was recognized in 2010 when he was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. He has also worked alongside Steve Howe of YES in the supergroup GTR.

Hackett'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),Hackett has explored the influences of world music. Recent tours have seen Hackett celebrate his time with GENESIS including a spectacular 2018 tour in which he realized a long-held ambition to perform the works of GENESIS live with his band and an orchestra.

The lockdown enforced by the 2020 global pandemic has proven to be a particularly creative period for Hackett. He began by releasing "Selling England By The Pound & Spectral Mornings: Live At Hammersmith", a live recording of 2019's hugely successful tour celebrating that GENESIS classic together with the 40th anniversary of one of his most-loved solo albums. Lockdown also gave Hackett the opportunity to write and record two new studio albums, the U.K. classical chart hit "Under A Mediterranean Sky" and "Surrender Of Silence".
