Legendary guitarist Steve Hackett is currently finishing his North American dates and about to embark upon the UK leg of his tour performing his favourite Genesis album ‘Selling England by the Pound.’ He will also play songs from his solo album ‘Spectral Mornings’, which celebrates its 40th anniversary along with tracks from the current album, ‘At the Edge of Light’.   

Today, he presents another clip from the forthcoming live release ‘Genesis Revisited Band & Orchestra: Live’, Steve comments:  “The huge team with band and orchestra adds a rich beauty to the ambience of “Afterglow”, one of my favourite Genesis songs.

Watch the clip for ‘Afterglow’ here:

‘Genesis Revisited Band & Orchestra: Live’ will be released on 25th October 2019 via InsideOutMusic, this release will be available 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.
