Steve Hackett will be revisiting his stellar work with Genesis when he launches the North American leg of his “Genesis Revisited: Foxtrot at Fifty + Hackett Highlights” tour in fall 2023. The concerts will be preceded by a tour throughout Europe this spring and summer, that begins April 19 in Paris. Tickets can be purchased here.

The show will feature the 1972 Genesis album, Foxtrot, performed in full, plus additional fan favorites. Long considered one of prog rock’s classic releases, the album featured such all-time great Genesis tracks as “Watcher of the Skies” and the epic “Supper’s Ready.”

Hackett joined Genesis in 1971 as the guitarist in the band’s classic line-up alongside Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford and Phil Collins. Hackett’s intricate guitar work was a key element of Genesis’ albums from Nursery Cryme (1971) through 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, born Feb. 12, 1950, 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 with Genesis into the Rock & Hall of Fame. He has also worked alongside Steve Howe of YES in the supergroup GTR.

In recent years, he released Selling England By the Pound & Spectral Mornings: Live at Hammersmith, a live recording of his 2019 tour celebrating that Genesis classic together with the 40th anniversary of one of his most-loved solo albums. The lockdown also gave Hackett the opportunity to write and record two new studio albums, Under a Mediterranean Sky and Surrender of Silence.
