  ADDITIONAL UK DATES ADDED TO STEVE HACKETT'S GENESIS REVISITED TOUR
4th December 2012



steve hackett



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.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
