Steve Hackett celebrates the 40th anniversary of the release of his debut solo album – ‘Voyage Of The Acolyte’ – with an extensive UK tour starting in Guildford on Tuesday 6 October.

The set-list will take in highlights from his solo career along with “Genesis Revisited”.

On 16 October, a 14-disc boxed set – “Premonitions – The Charisma Recordings 1975-1983″ – is released featuring the first six solo albums together with previously unreleased material,  rarities and 5.1 remixes.

Get Ready to ROCK! Radio celebrates the 40th anniversary tour – “Acolyte to Wolflight with Genesis Revisited” by adding in more Steve Hackett tracks to their general playlists in October.

In addition, book-ending the tour, the radio station repeats two Steve Hackett specials.  On Sunday 4 October, in an hour long feature, Steve chats about his long career.  On Sunday 25 October, Steve selects ‘Favourite Tracks from Favourite Artists’ – those pieces that have influenced and inspired him over the years.

And in ‘Assume The Position’ on Sunday 4 October, David Randall gives away a copy of the recent biographical DVD ‘Steve Hackett – The Man, The Music’
