Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member & former Genesis lead guitarist, Steve Hackett returns to the Bilheimer Capitol Theatre on a special Anniversary Tour! For the first time ever, Steve will perform Selling England By The Pound and Seconds Out.
Acclaimed by many to be GENESIS’S finest album, Selling England By The Pound will be performed by Hackett and company in its entirety. Supported by some of the best musicians on the planet, Steve’s unique guitar work remains the fulcrum on which this challenging and exhilarating show is balanced. In addition, Hackett will perform selections from Seconds Out.
Steve Hackett is renowned as an immensely talented and innovative rock musician. He was lead guitarist with GENESIS as part of their classic line up with Gabriel, Collins, Banks and Rutherford, that produced acclaimed albums such as Selling England By The Pound (a favorite of John Lennon). With Steve’s extraordinary versatility in both his electric guitar playing and his composing, he involves influences from many genres, including Jazz, World Music and Blues. He is equally adept in his classical albums.
With GENESIS, Steve’s guitar playing produced some of the most memorable moments, from the sensitivity of his acoustic sound on Horizons and Blood on the Rooftops to the dramatic rock guitar solos of Firth of Fifth and Fountain of Salmacis. As he embarked on his solo career he developed his exceptional range, pushing musical boundaries into exciting areas, inventing new sounds and also techniques such as ‘tapping’. His solo career went from strength to strength resulting in the highly successful single Cell 151 in the mid-eighties, as well as the Steve Hackett and Steve Howe super group GTR, highly successful in America.
