As UK fans rush to get their hands on the May Genesis Revisited Tour tickets, Steve Hackett is happy to announce that further dates have been added to make sure no one is left out; the legendary guitarist will be back in October/November, with a second leg of the tour including a performance at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London.
Following the success of the 'Genesis Revisited II' album, which is still enjoying great sales after entering the UK charts at 24 on its release a month ago, tickets to the May shows have been going fast; Birmingham is already sold out and there are only a few tickets still available for the London Hammersmith Apollo date on 10th May.

"Sales have gone ballistic with demand from promoters and fans for extra dates", says Hackett enthusiastically. "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'..."
The Genesis Revisited Tour will be Hackett's biggest production in recent years, giving his audience a chance to re-live the legendary band's Golden Era through classic tracks from both his Genesis Revisited albums. Steve is the first ex-Genesis member to revisit their 1971-77 repertoire on stage and fans are looking forward to relishing the opportunity to see the live shows.
