Ground-breaking prog guitarist Steve Hackett recently announced the release of his acclaimed Acolyte To Wolflight With Genesis Revisited Tour as 2CD/2DVD deluxe package and standalone Blu-Ray. 'The Total Experience Live In Liverpool' is out now.
"When Inside Out told me that I could film a gig on the British leg of the 2015 tour for release, I thought that we should do it away from London (and) I felt doing it in Liverpool had a certain ring to it"- explains Hackett enthusiastically - "This is an extraordinary city and the Philharmonic Hall is an extraordinary venue. Besides, it's not as if Liverpool is known for having any good music - there's never been a good band from there. Ha!"
Hackett's love for Liverpool goes back to his time with Genesis: "We played there a few times in the '70s, and the fans have always been very good to me there. And as a huge Beatles fan, I also know the landmarks there, such as Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields. I have been on the Magical Mystery Tour. So, the city means a lot to me from that point of view as well. The Beatles set the benchmark for all of us who have followed; we take our imagination from them."
Celebrating the 40th anniversary of his first solo album 'Voyage Of The Acolyte' and following his latest 'Wolflight', the 'Acolyte to Wolflight with Genesis Revisited' tour was Steve's effort to represent the many chapters of his career. Featuring two sets - one highlighting his solo work, the second paying tribute to Genesis - the two hour performance was greeted with enthusiasm by both fans and critics.
We have 2 copies of this 2CD/2DVD set: The Total Experience - Live In Liverpool Acolyte to Wolflight with Genesis Classics to give away. All you have to do is answer this question:
What band was Steve Hackett with before he went solo?
