Steve Hackett, Genesis Revisited, Solo Gems and GTR

February 22, 2018
8:00 pm
The UC Theatre

Innovative rock musician, Steve Hackett, goes on tour to encompass his whole career with Genesis Revisited, new and old solo numbers and a touch of GTR. Steve Hackett is renowned as an immensely talented and innovative rock musician. He was lead guitarist with Genesis as part of their classic line up with Gabriel, Collins, Banks and Rutherford, that produced acclaimed albums such as Selling England by the Pound (a favourite of John Lennon). As he embarked on his solo career he developed his exceptional range, pushing musical boundaries into exciting areas, inventing new sounds and also techniques such as 'tapping'. His solo career went from strength to strength and the mid eighties not only saw the hit single Cell 151, but also the Steve Hackett and Steve Howe super group GTR, highly successful in America. Steve's live electric gigs take his fans on an extraordinary journey drawn from a rich musical heritage. Supported by some of the best musicians on the planet, Steve's unique guitar work remains the fulcrum on which this challenging and exhilarating show is balanced. Following the success of his album Wolflight, his latest album The Night Siren gained even more notoriety, charting in several countries and reaching the top 30 in the UK charts. He tours worldwide. Don’t miss Steve Hackett performing hits from his entire career, including Genesis Revisited, new and old solo numbers and a touch of GTR in Berkeley this February!
