Cool.


He's doing the half Genesis, half solo material again.
Wind & Wuthering will be the theme. 'Anyway' from TLLDOB will be played. :lol:

Yes thanks, I read that too.

I gotta think he'll do Blood On The Rooftops and Unquiet Slumbers>In That Quiet Earth.

^ He's never played Wot Gorilla live before.

One For The Vine would be amazing to see live again. (I saw the Duke tour in 1980).

Wot Gorilla would be awesome. I've heard it thrown around that he might be playing it. Is it on the setlist?

The new album

Image

PRESS RELEASE

Guitar virtuoso Steve Hackett is pleased to announce the release of his latest solo album "The Night Siren" on 24th March 2017 through InsideOut Music (Sony). As implied in the title, The Night Siren is a wake-up call… the warning of a siren sounding in this era of strife and division.

The Night Siren showcases Steve’s incredible guitar playing as strongly as ever, along with regular Hackett collaborators and also musicians from several different countries who Steve invited to join him in celebrating multicultural diversity and unity.

The setlist from 2/17/17, Victoria Theater, NJPAC, Newark, NJ:

Every Day
El Nino (new)
The Steppes
In The Skeleton Gallery (new)
Behind The Smoke (new)
Serpentine Song
Shadow of the Hierophant (second half)

Eleventh Earl of Mar
One for the Vine
Blood On the Rooftops
...In That Quiet Earth
Afterglow
Dance On A Volcano
Inside and Out
Dancing With the Moonlit Knight
Firth of Fifth
The Musical Box

Encore:
Los Endos (including Slogans)

The new stuff was excellent.

The Wind and Wuthering material was good, but not ideally suited for Nad Sylvan's voice.
His performance actually gave me a greater appreciation for Phil's vocals on this material.

Steve was having technical difficulties with his acoustic prior to Blood. As the venue was so small, almost every comment from the audience could be heard.
As he and his tech were trying to get a sound, someone yelled, "Now's the time when Peter would tell a story." The audience laughed. Steve repeated the comment, shaking his head and laughing.
Someone yelled something about John Wetton. The audience applauded and Steve gave a moving tribute, saying how we knew him as a musician, but he knew him as both a musician and dear friend.
Finally, unable to fix the problem, Steve suggested scrapping the performance entirely! The audience groaned. When things quieted down, someone yelled, "Do it the old fashioned way. Lower the mic and play the guitar into it." The audience applauded and yelled encouragement to Steve.
The tech made the adjustment, and despite Steve's initial reservations about feedback, the performance went off without a hitch, and with perfectly acceptable sound!

It was fantastic hearing Inside and Out, a great performance!

The older Genesis material was outstanding!

It was great to hear Slogans as the middle bit of Los Endos.

New tour dates -

Image

Steve's exciting new show will bring back huge Genesis favourites he co-wrote such as 'Supper's Ready', 'Dancing with the Moonlit Knight', 'Fountain of Salmacis', 'Firth of Fifth' & 'The Musical Box', also including songs like 'One for the Vine' and 'Inside & Out', not seen by many since the 1970s...

His solo set will celebrate 40 years of Please Don't Touch and will also include special GTR number 'When The Heart Rules The Mind', with other old favourites and songs from his ground-breaking new album 'The Night Siren'.

Joining Steve on this tour are Roger King (keyboards), Gary O'Toole (drums / percussion), Rob Townsend (saxes / flutes), Jonas Reingold (bass / twelve string) and Nad Sylvan on vocals.

Since the 1970s Steve has had an extraordinary career, first with Genesis and then solo, releasing over 30 solo albums and a huge North American hit album with supergroup GTR. Steve has invented techniques like tapping and sweep-picking with both Eddie Van Halen and Brian May acknowledging his influence. Renowned as one of the most innovative rock musicians of our time, in 2010 he was inducted into the prestigious Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Don't miss this outstanding live concert, Steve Hackett Genesis Revisited, Solo Gems & GTR 2018 Tour de Force!
