Steve Hackett follows up his 2013 release Genesis Revisited: Live at Hammersmith with the new DVD Genesis Revisited: Live at the Royal Albert Hall out on June 30 in the U.K. (U.S. release TBD).
The new set was recorded in 5.1 Surround Sound and will be available in two formats, a two-CD/one-DVD standard digipack and a limited two-CD/two-DVD/Blu-Ray art-book with liner notes, photos and bonus interviews.
Hacket says of the new release “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…”
The album also features vocals from Ray Wilson, the guy who replaced Phil Collins in Genesis for just one album.
Hacket is joined by a backup band of 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 (Unifaun, Agents Of Mercy) on vocals.
