(New York, NY) – World-renowned guitarist/composer Steve Hackett will soon return to North America with his acclaimed band for the “Acolyte To Wolflight With Genesis Revisited – The Total Experience” tour 2016. In celebration of his latest solo album, WOLFLIGHT and the recent 40th anniversary of the release of his first solo album, VOYAGE OF THE ACOLYTE, the tour will feature a blend of Hackett solo material as well as Genesis songs resulting in an unforgettable evening of epic music. The first half of the show will focus on Hackett’s solo material, while the second half will highlight GENESIS songs.
Of the “Acolyte To Wolflight With Genesis Revisited – The Total Experience” tour, Steve Hackett commented, ““I’m thrilled to return to North America to play these dates. The band and I played to terrific crowds in the Fall and we’re looking forward to taking this show to a whole bunch of different states this Spring!” Hackett will be joined on the tour by his longtime band: Roger King (keyboards), Gary O’Toole (drums and percussion), Rob Townsend (saxophones and flutes), Roine Stolt (bass and guitars) and Nad Sylvan (vocals). Please see below for tour dates.
Steve Hackett’s latest solo album, WOLFLIGHT (InsideOut Music) explores a new chapter in Hackett’s career. The tracks take the listener through a journey in space and time looking at the different faces of the endless fight for freedom. Wandering between parallel universes, Hackett explores contemporary and ancient cultures, from Greece (“Corycian Fire”) to the Far East (“Wolflight”), the United States and Martin Luther King (“Black Thunder”), and also his very own childhood memories (“The Wheel’s Turning”) and the unresolved drama of domestic violence (“Love Song To A Vampire”). The video for the title track can be seen here.
In 2010, Steve Hackett was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame at The 25th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony alongside his Genesis bandmates from the classic line-up: Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford. For more than three decades, Steve Hackett has been known for his innovative tone and extraordinary versatility as a guitarist and composer. He helped define Genesis’ sound as lead guitarist in the classic line-up and went on to have a highly-successful career as a solo artist, and also as part of 80s supergroup GTR with Steve Howe.
