News: STEVE HACKETT – orchestral tour, box set, radio interview

Prog-meister Steve Hackett tours with a 41 piece orchestra in October, plus there is the release of a 6-CD/2-DVD box set covering the years 1984-2006.

Steve’s orchestral tour stems from a one-off performance in March 2017 in the USA.  He’ll bring a symphonic slant to his “Genesis Revisited” catalogue.

October also sees the release of Broken Skies – Outspread Wings (1984 – 2006) a multi-disc collection of albums including the world music-inspired ‘Til We Have Faces’ and the live album ‘Feedback 86′ – all newly remastered, alongside a host of bonus tracks.

In addition to this, 2 DVD’s feature several recent live rarities and 5.1 mixes of selected songs, including the ‘Somewhere in South America’ live set.  This limited edition is rounded off by brand new artwork from Roger Dean and a 60-page book with liner notes, rare photos, lyrics and more.

On Monday 24 September (16:00 GMT; repeated Thursday 27, 23:00) he chats to Get Ready to ROCK! Radio in a new interview as part of the radio station’s ’10 Years in the making’ celebration in September.
