Steve Hackett – Live at the Royal Festival Hall on 25th October – UK Tour starts 2nd November

Genesis Revisited with Orchestra – released on the 25th October

The album was recorded on 5th October 2018 at The Royal Festival Hall, London, during the 2018 Genesis Revisited Tour. The tour (2018) fulfilled a long held ambition of Steve’s: to perform the music of Genesis with a live orchestra.
