Legendary guitarist and Prog pioneer Steve Hackett is bringing his Genesis Extended UK Tour to the Brighton Centre on Wednesday, October 22.

The show will feature a selection of Genesis classics as well as some of the gems he could not include on the award-winning Genesis Revisited tours in 2012 and 2013.

With a career spanning decades and a repertoire that includes a body of outstanding solo work, this will be the last opportunity for fans to see Steve perform a whole set entirely from the Genesis catalogue.

Mostly Autumn will perform an acoustic set as support on all UK dates.

Steve said: “Due to the success of the Genesis Revisited shows, we’re extending both the dates and the concept in 2014.

“We’ll launch into a full Genesis set with favourites from this year such as The Musical Box, Dancing with the Moonlit Knight and Supper’s Ready along with the addition of other Genesis classics, which are often requested and the audiences deserve to hear. I’m really excited about this.”

Steve was Genesis’ guitarist from 1971 to 1977 and is the first ex-member to re-record and tour that part of the band’s material in Genesis Revisited I (1996) and II (2012).

Taking the stage again with Steve Hackett is an exceptional team of top class musicians, including Roger King (Gary Moore, Snoop Doggie Dog, Jamelia) on keyboards, Gary O’Toole (Kylie Minogue, Chrissie Hynde) on drums, percussions and vocals, Rob Townsend (Eddie Henderson, Bill Bruford, Django Bates) on sax, flute and percussions, Nad Sylvan (Unifaun, Agents Of Mercy) on vocals.

Genesis Extended also sees the return of Nick Beggs on bass and twelve-string guitar.

The tour will visit some of the locations that Genesis Revisited missed, and will return to London where the two Genesis Extended shows – at Hammersmith Apollo and Royal Albert Hall respectively – sold out.

The show starts at 6.30pm.
