News: Steve Hackett Releases Live DVD of Royal Albert Hall Genesis Revisited Show

Ex-Genesis Steve Hackett announces live DVD/CD.

The legend guitar player Steve Hackett is set to release a live CD/DVD. Recorded at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London, in October 2013, in 5.1 surround sound, Genesis Revisited: Live At The Royal Albert Hall (2014) is going to be released on DVD and CD on 30th June.

The release will come in 2 formats: Standard 2CD/DVD digipak & Limited 2CD/2DVD/Blu-Ray art-book with liner notes, photos and bonus interview features.

Steve Hackett comments on the project: “I'm excited. The Steve Hackett Genesis Revisited show at the extraordinary Royal Albert Hall is being released on both DVD and Blu-Ray in 5.1. It was a thrilling musical experience for all concerned with a fantastic light / visual show!  Paul Green and team filmed it brilliantly too. It's a feast for eyes, ears and all the senses...”

In order to re-live such a seminal chapter of prog rock history live on stage for Genesis Revisited, Hackett surrounded himself with a team of exceptional musicians including keyboardist Roger King (Gary Moore, Snoop Dog, Jamelia), Gary O’Toole (Chrissie Hynde, Kylie Minogue) on drums, percussion and vocals, Rob Townsend (Eddie Henderson, Bill Bruford, Django Bates) on sax, flute and percussion, Lee Pomeroy (Rick Wakeman, Take That) on bass, and Nad Sylvan (Abbas’s Michael B Tretow) on vocals.
