Legendary guitarist Steve Hackett will release ‘Genesis Revisited Band & Orchestra: Live’ on 25th October 2019 via InsideOutMusic as 2CD + Blu-Ray digipak and 2CD + DVD Multibox internationally, and 2CD + Blu-Ray + DVD in North America.
The album was recorded on 5th October 2018 at The Royal Festival Hall, London, during the 2018 Genesis Revisited Tour which fulfilled a long held ambition of Steve’s: to perform the music of Genesis with a live orchestra. The concert featured Steve’s regular touring band of Roger King (keyboards), Gary O’Toole (drums/percussion), Rob Townsend (saxes/flutes) with Nad Sylvan on vocals and Jonas Reingold (The Flower Kings) on bass, together with special guests John Hackett and Amanda Lehmann, and augmented by the 41-piece Heart Of England Orchestra conducted by Bradley Thachuk.
Now, a first track from this stunning release is available, ‘Dancing with the Moonlit Knight’ from Genesis’ iconic ‘Selling England by the Pound’ album, watch the clip here:

He and the band then embarked on the Selling England/Spectral Mornings Tour across Europe and the USA before they return for 20 dates in the UK in November. This tour marks the first time Steve has performed the whole of his favourite Genesis album ‘Selling England by the Pound’ together with Steve’s favourite songs from his solo ‘Spectral Mornings’ album, celebrating its 40th anniversary, and tracks from his current album.
