Steve Hackett's Genesis Extended World Tour - Place des Arts, Saturday November 29, 2014

by Peter Thelen, Published 2014-04-30

Hackett is best known as guitarist and composer with Genesis during the classic rock period from 1971 to 1977 and is the first ex-member to re-record live performances of that part of the band's material in Genesis Revisited I (1996) and II (2012). Hackett is also considered one of Britain’s finest musicians and his guitar playing produced some of Genesis’ most memorable moments. Taking the stage again with Hackett is an exceptional team of musicians, including Roger King on keyboards, Gary O'Toole on drums, percussion and vocals, Rob Townsend on sax, flute and percussion, Nick Beggs on bass & twelve string and Nad Sylvan on vocals. An enthusiastic Hackett explains: "Due to the success of the Genesis Revisited shows, we're extending the concept in 2014. We'll launch into a full Genesis set with favourites from last year such as "The Musical Box," "Dancing with the Moonlit Knight" and "Supper's Ready," with the addition of other Genesis classics which are often requested and the audiences deserve to hear... I'm really excited about this!" The Genesis Extended Tour will feature gems that Hackett did not play during the Award winning Genesis Revisited shows. With a career spanning decades including outstanding solo work, this will be the last opportunity for fans to see a whole set from the Genesis catalogue. If you missed the show last year or the show was missing your favourite track, here's your chance to relive the timeless magic of Genesis, with Steve Hackett and his remarkable band. PRE-SALE: Starts Thursday May 1 at 10 AM at www.progquebec.com.
