Former Genesis guitarist and prog legend Steve Hackett is returning to Canada as part of his North American tour in February 2018.
From the 1970s and onward, Steve has had an unbelievable career, starting with Genesis before going solo and releasing over 30 albums, to a massive North American hit album with supergroup GTR.
Recognized as one of the most innovative rock musicians of our time, Steve was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2010.
The new tour will see Steve bring back Genesis favorites not seen by many since the 1970s. His solo set will celebrate 40 years of ‘Please Don’t Touch’ and will include the GTR number ‘When The Heart Rules The Mind‘, as well as songs from his groundbreaking new album, ‘The Night Siren’.
“Talking about Massey Hall, I remember doing a show there with Genesis, where we were supporting Lou Reed, where fights were breaking out in the audience — those who wanted to hear Lou Reed and those who wanted to hear us. And you know those things are always fun to remember.”
Prior to his return to Toronto, (on his birthday Feb 12,) Andy Frost had the chance to sit down and chat with Steve Hackett about fond memories of the Canadian city, changes to the music industry since the beginning of his career and the evolution of his innovations in sound.
