Steve Hackett was a member of the classic Genesis line up in the seventies. He joined the band in 1970 and his complex and distinctive guitar playing was an integral part of their success on albums such as Foxtrot, The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway and A Trick Of The Tail. He released his first solo album, Voyage Of The Acolyte, in 1975 while still a member of the band before going completely solo in 1977. He has now released a total of 21 solo albums covering the whole spectrum from rock to classical.This concert was recorded in Budapest in April this year during the European tour in support of Hackett’s most recent album To Watch The Storms. It combines songs from across his career including classic Genesis tracks like Blood On The Rooftops and Firth Of Fifth, early solo material like Ace Of Wands and Spectral Mornings and more recent tracks such as Mechanical Bride and Darktown. The evening ends appropriately with the old Genesis showstopper Los Endos.
