Guitarist/composer Steve Hackett will be at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury on Friday, Sept. 27.
Hackett is touring North America in support of his recent double album, “Genesis Revisited II.”
The set list will include all Genesis material including fan favorites such as “Musical Box,” “Firth Of Fifth,” and “Supper’s Ready.” The performances will also include a specially designed light show. The Steve Hackett Genesis Revisited 2013 World Tour has already broken box office records in the UK, Europe and Japan.
“Genesis Revisited II” features reinterpreted Genesis classics from the period dearest to Hackett, the “golden era” 1971-1977, with a stellar array of guest performers. Hackett enlisted the help of 35 special guests to provide the songs with a new unique edge. The star-studded line-up includes respected vocalists Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), Mikael Akerfeldt (Opeth), Simon Collins (Phil Collins’ son), Amanda Lehmann, Conrad Keely and more.
Steve Rothery of Marillion and Roine Stolt of The Flower Kings and Transatlantic joined in to share guitar duties, while Jeremy Stacey and Gary O’Toole are amongst the chosen drummers.
In 2010, Hackett was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame alongside his Genesis bandmates from the classic line-up: Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford. For more than three decades, Hackett has been known for his extraordinary versatility as a guitarist and composer. He helped define Genesis’ sound as lead guitarist and went on to have a successful career as a solo artist and as part of the 80s supergroup GTR with Steve Howe.
