FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

1st April 2014

 

Prog pioneer Steve Hackett proudly announces the DVD release of his critically acclaimed live spectacular Genesis Revisited, filmed at the sold out show at London’s legendary Royal Albert Hall in October 2013. The DVD of this landmark performance will hit the stores on 30th June 2014.

 

Genesis Revisited: Live at the Royal Albert Hall – the next best thing after being there – was recorded in 5.1 Surround Sound and will beavailable in the following formats:

      Standard 2CD/DVD digipak

      Limited 2CD/2DVD/Blu-Ray art-book with liner notes, photos and bonus interview features

 

An ecstatic Steve Hackett comments: “I’m excited the Steve Hackett Genesis Revisited show at the extraordinary Royal Albert Hall is being released on both DVD and Blu-Ray in 5.1. It was a thrilling musical experience for all concerned with a fantastic light / visual show!  Paul Green and team filmed it brilliantly too. It’s a feast for eyes, ears and all the senses…”

 

In order to re-live such a seminal chapter of prog rock history live on stage for Genesis Revisited, Hackett surrounded himself with a team of exceptional musicians including keyboardist Roger King (Gary Moore, Snoop Dog, Jamelia), Gary O’Toole (Chrissie Hynde, Kylie Minogue) on drums, percussion and vocals, Rob Townsend (Eddie Henderson, Bill Bruford, Django Bates) on sax, flute and percussion, Lee Pomeroy (Rick Wakeman, Take That) on bass, and Nad Sylvan (Abbas’s Michael B Tretow) on vocals.   

 

 

Prog Magazine’s Grant Moon wrote: ‘The Genesis Revisited incarnation represents perhaps the last chance we’ll have to hear it as it should be. It’s hard to recall a performance that sounded so good at this venue’.

NOTES TO EDITORS:

Steve Hackett was the lead guitarist for Genesis from 1971 to 1977 and is the first ex-member to re-record that part of the band’s repertoire in his albums Genesis Revisited (1996) and Genesis Revisited II (2012). Following the huge success of both albums, Hackett toured Genesis Revisited extensively.
