Steve Hackett has spoken about his current tour, and filmed exclusive live rehearsal footage.

The live run, which began this week, follows the release of the Genesis guitarist's latest solo album "Wolflight", and celebrates his 40th anniversary as a solo artist.

With a set list covering a huge range of tracks, from early solo albums including "Voyage of the Acolyte" and "Spectral Mornings", through to the new album and Genesis classics, the tour takes fans on an expansive journey through all aspects of the iconic musician's work.

Steve enthused: "I'm looking forward tremendously to creating a show celebrating both early material and my latest album 'Wolflight', using magical surround sound. We're also involving a whole new set of Genesis Classics, including several numbers I've not played since the Seventies, such as 'Can-Utility and the Coastliners', 'Cinema Show' and 'Lamb Lies Down On Broadway' and 'Get 'em Out By Friday...''"
