Steve Hackett to release new double live album and DVD

The package was recorded in Liverpool on the Acolyte to Wolflight With Genesis Revisited Tour.

Steve Hackett is set to release of a brand new double live album and DVD this summer.

Titled ‘The Total Experience Live In Liverpool’, the 2CD/2DVD deluxe package and stand-a-lone Blu-Ray was recorded on Steve’s Acolyte to Wolflight With Genesis Revisited Tour in 2015 at the Liverpool Philharmonic.

 “When Inside Out told me that I could film a gig on the British leg of the 2015 tour for release, I thought that we should do it away from London (and) I felt doing it in Liverpool had a certain ring to it,” says Steve.

“This is an extraordinary city and the Philharmonic Hall is an extraordinary venue. Besides, it's not as if Liverpool is known for having any good music – there's never been a good band from there. Ha!”

The tour celebrated the 40th anniversary of his debut solo album ‘Voyage Of The Acolyte’ and boasted two sets – one focusing on his solo career and the other containing a host of Genesis classics.

“It wasn't an easy job to decide what to include, but I think there was a good balance between old and new,” Steve explains.

“What I have always born in mind when choosing the songs is what they mean to the fans. Time has a way of turning them into an emotional calendar for people. These songs take on an importance and become part of their lives.

“So, when I do them live, authenticity is important. I am aware that what I have to do is find a connection between nostalgia and what things can sound like in a contemporary setting.”

Released on Friday 24th June, ‘The Total Experience Live In Liverpool’ will be available as double CD plus double DVD digipak, separate Blu-Ray edition as well as digital album including the two audio CDs.

Steve Hackett plays Stone Free Festival at London’s O2 Arena on Sunday 19th June alongside headliner Rick Wakeman, Marillion, Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here Symphonic Live and more. Tickets are on sale from Planet Rock Tickets now.
