^ 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.

Also I look forward to playing all the favourite songs from SPECTRAL MORNINGS, marking its anniversary, plus new album tasters, as well as additional Genesis gems in a terrific grand slam!."

New music from Steve

Image

Release date: 25th January 2019

* PRESS RELEASE *

Following the tremendous success of 2017's 'The Night Siren' (charted at #22 in Germany, #28 in the UK), legendary former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett announces the release of his new studio album 'At The Edge Of Light' on the 25th January 2019. The album which features ten songs, sees Steve unite a vast amount of styles ranging from guitar driven rock to epic orchestration, from world music to the reflective and atmospheric all brought together in Steve Hackett's unique style.

Steve says: "In these dangerous times, deep shadows feel even sharper than usual and we find ourselves standing at the edge of light... The contrast between dark and light weaves its way throughout the album in many ways, from the sense of good fighting evil through to the interplay of dark and light opposites magically combining in cultures, including the heartbeat of India and primal tribal rhythms. Ultimately, this album embraces the need for all musical forms and cultures to connect and celebrate the wonder of unity in this divided world."

At The Edge Of Light is released in a number of formats including a Mediabook CD plus extra DVD with 5.1 surround sound mix & behind the scenes documentary, double vinyl LP + CD, Jewelcase CD and digital album.

Steve Hackett has established himself as one of Rock music's finest and recognisable guitarists through his time with the legendary Genesis who he joined in 1971 and a solo career following his departure from Genesis in 1977 and is a hugely influential guitarist particularly in the Progressive Rock genre. 'At The Edge Of Light' will be Hackett's 26th studio album in a solo career that began in 1975 with the release of his debut solo album Voyage Of The Acolyte.

'At The Edge Of Light' was mainly recorded in Steve's own studio but also around the world. The album features international artists, including Durga and Loreley of Pink Floyd vocal fame with drummers Nick D'Virgilio and Simon Phillips from USA, Sheema on sitar from India, Icelandic drummer/percussionist Gulli Briem, tar player Malik Mansurov and Swedish bass player Jonas Reingold... This album also features Paul Stillwell on didgeridoo, Rob Townsend on sax, bass clarinet and duduk, Amanda Lehmann on vocals, John Hackett on flute, drummer Gary O'Toole, Roger King and Ben Fenner on keyboards, Dick Driver on double bass, violinist and viola player Christine Townsend... All magically honed and engineered by Roger King.

Full Track Listing:

1. Fallen Walls and Pedestals
2. Beasts In Our Time
3. Under The Eye of the Sun
4. Underground Railroad
5. Those Golden Wings
6. Shadow and Flame
7. Hungry Years
8. Descent
9. Conflict
10. Peace
