Rock legend Steve Hackett rolls back the years as he recaptures prog-rock giants Genesis at their best on his latest tour.

Hackett and his band Genesis Revisited will play the whole of the Genesis live album Seconds Out when they visit Cumbria next year.

Seconds Out was the hugely successful double album recorded on the Genesis 1977 tour together with The Cinema Show, from their 1976 tour.

It featured Hackett on guitar alongside Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks and Phil Collins who was vocalist following the departure of Peter Gabriel.

The tour included music from each of the six studio albums from Hackett’s time in Genesis and marked his final recordings with the band as he went solo on its completion.

The Seconds Out + More! Tour comes to The Sands Centre in November next year and will also feature additional material, including the guitarist’s solo concert favourite The Steppes to celebrate the 40th birthday of his fourth solo album Defector.

Hackett says: “I’m thrilled to bring Seconds Out back to life, featuring Genesis material at its most exciting and virtuosic, this time with all numbers played in full plus additional surprises!”

He joined Genesis at the beginning of 1971 and was a key element of Genesis’ albums from Nursery Cryme (1971) to Wind And Wuthering (1977) including the classic Selling England By The Pound.

After leaving Genesis at the end of 1977, he has produced more than 30 albums and is renowned as both an immensely talented and innovative rock musician and a virtuoso classical guitarist and composer.

This was recognised in 2010 when he was inducted into the Rock Hall Of Fame.
