Steve Hackett has announced on his newsletter that the Genesis Revisited shows will resume in 2014 after successful 2013 in Europe and North America. He also let drop that he's working on his next solo album, a possible 2014 release.

Here is the latest update from Steve Hackett himself:
The Genesis Revisited shows have continued to go down a storm in Europe, USA, Canada and back full circle round to the UK... with an amazing high point at the Royal Albert Hall, where band and crew excelled themselves, and the light show was breathtaking. Audiences everywhere have been fantastic. Thank you to everyone who came to these shows and made them so special for us all.
It’s all going to start up again in early Spring 2014 with Genesis Revisited/Extended! We’ll be kicking off in the States. Confirmed shows are in the list below. We’ll then join the Cruise to the Edge again, which promises to be as exciting as last time. Then continuing from April through to May we’ll play in Russia, the Baltic, Scandinavia and Europe. Keep a look out on hackettsongs.com for all additional tour dates from States through to Europe, as they are constantly up-dated...
The Live Hammersmith Genesis Revisited CD/DVD is now out, and is getting a great reaction, so I’m thrilled!
There hasn’t been much time to rest, but Jo and I did get a holiday for a week, exploring Greece, from Mount Olympus, the Meteora and one of the deepest gorges in the world to Delphi and an intriguing cave... and then on to Southern Italy joined by our friend Vania who showed us extraordinary Matera and the ghost town of Craco.
I’ve already started a new solo album, and virtually three tracks in it promises to be both energetic and surprising. I’ll be working hard on it both before and after Christmas. I hope it’ll be released in autumn 2014...
Once again, thank you everyone for all your support! See you all again soon...
