Steve Hackett has announced an extensive 20-date UK Tour for November 2019.
Kicking off at Aylesbury Waterside on Saturday 2nd November and wrapping up at London Hammersmith Eventim Apollo on Friday 29th November, Steve and his band will perform the 1973 Genesis album ‘Selling England by the Pound’ in its entirety for the first time ever.
2019 is also the 40th anniversary of Steve’s critically acclaimed third solo album ‘Spectral Mornings’ so to celebrate the milestone Steve will be performing tracks from the album on the November trek.
The setlist will also boast other Genesis classics from their distinguished back catalogue alongside songs from Steve’s new solo album, which will be released next year.
Steve enthuses: "I’m thrilled to be performing the whole of my favourite Genesis album, ‘Selling England by the Pound’, which caught the attention of John Lennon in 1973. I felt that I was now playing guitar in the world’s best band, and everything was opening up for us…
“Also, I look forward to playing all the favourite songs from ‘Spectral Mornings’, marking its anniversary, plus new album tasters, as well as additional Genesis gems in a terrific grand slam!"
Steve’s musicians on the tour will be Roger King (keyboards), Jonas Reingold (bass), Gary O’Toole (drums/percussion), Rob Townsend (saxes/flutes) with Nad Sylvan on vocals.
Planet Rock is running a 48-hour ticket presale to the tour, which kicks off right here at 10am on Wednesday 3rd October.
