Steve Hackett Announces Additional UK Dates

Steve Hackett Announces Additional UK Dates -

Due to huge public demand, prog-legend Steve Hackett has added another 9 shows to next year's 'Genesis Revisited Tour.

The additional shows will be in October and November (2013) and will take place in Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, Newcastle, Liverpool, Sheffield, Cambridge and London's Royal Albert Hall.

The Genesis Revisited Tour is shaping up to be Hackett's biggest production in recent years, giving his audience a chance to re-live the legendary band's golden era through classics from both his Genesis Revisited albums.

"Sales have gone ballistic with demand from promoters and fans for extra dates" says Hackett enthusiastically of next year's UK tour, "I'm knocked out with the overwhelmingly positive response and I'm thrilled we're going to do more shows... There'll be some set changes between the two tours but both'll have tons of classic faves including Supper's Ready, Dancing with the Moonlit Knight and Musical Box..."

Tickets for the aforementioned shows will go on sale Friday 7th December.
