Legendary guitarist Steve Hackett will bring his new show “Genesis Greats, Lamb Highlights & Solo” to Germany and will headline the Final Night Of The Prog Festival on Saturday!
His new show celebrates the 50th anniversary of The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway, and Steve Hackett is including a selection of highlights from this iconic Genesis album.
Steve Hackett’s timeless guitar-work was woven throughout Genesis’ classic 70s catalogue of albums. In recent years he and his outstanding touring line-up of Roger King (keyboards), Nad Sylvan (vocals), Jonas Reingold (bass, backing vocals), Rob Townsend (saxophone, flutes, additional keyboards) and Craig Blundell (drums) have brought many of these albums back to the concert hall to great acclaim. Many fans have also been asking for more tracks from The Lamb to be included. What better way to celebrate half-a-century of this remarkable album than to include a selection of Lamb Highlights alongside some of Hackett’s finest solo work and unmissable Genesis Greats.
“I’m hugely looking forward to return to the Loreley and play a final Night Of The Prog Festival-Show,” says Steve Hackett, “I have played this location with both, Genesis and my own band many times and always enjoyed it. I am also looking forward to present parts of my new concept album “The Circus And The Nightwhale”, which will come out in February, and also ‘The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway’ favourites as well as other iconic Genesis numbers.”
Together with his former band Genesis, Steve Hackett was part of the first ever live show that took place on the legendary festival grounds on the Loreley in 1976. He returned many times for headlining shows for the Night Of The Prog Festival and always left enthusiastic crowds.
Steve Hackett and his band will perform on Saturday, 20 July 2024.
His new concept album The Circus And The Nightwhale will come out on 16 February 2024 via InsideOut and is now available for pre-order [click here]
