Steve Hackett celebrates the 50 years of the mythical album Foxtrot, October 3rd at salle Wilfrid-Pelletier, Place des Arts
Tickets for the guitarist’s 2nd Montreal concert in less than a year will be on sale March 21st
March 15th, 2023 – Hot on the heels of his most successful solo tour ever, Steve Hackett announced his Steve Hackett Genesis Revisited – Foxtrot at Fifty + Hackett Highlights tour in 2022. The tour marks the 50th anniversary of the legendary Genesis album Foxtrot which, in 1972, was pivotal in establishing the band as a major force in British rock.
Guitarist Steve Hackett joined Genesis in 1971, making his band debut on the Nursery Cryme album. After extensive touring, the band were encouraged, by audience reactions, to further experiment with ever longer compositions and develop their ability to incorporate strong narratives. This, in turn, allowed frontman Peter Gabriel more opportunity to indulge in the theatrics which helped to raise the band’s profile.
Now, for 2023, Steve brings Foxtrot at Fifty to North America for a string of eagerly awaited dates following the huge selling UK 2022 tour, with a stop in Montreal, October 3rd, 2023, at salle Wilfrid-Pelletier, Place des Arts.
“I think Foxtrot was a terrific achievement for Genesis at that time,” says Steve Hackett. “I think there is not one weak track on the album, they all have their strong points and I’m really looking forward to doing the whole album live.”
The Steve Hackett Genesis Revisited – Foxtrot at Fifty + Hackett Highlights concert features gems such as Watcher Of The Skies, Supper’s Ready, Horizons and more, including songs from Steve’s solo repertoire.
