Steve Hackett : Genesis Revisited II

Se viene lo que promete ser un discazo infernal :
Following the release on 22nd October of legendary guitarist Steve Hackett's newest album, Genesis Revisited II which comes in a limited edition 2CD Media-book, as well as a 4LP & 2CD version, Steve is proud to announce details of his forthcoming 2013 world tour. The tour will be a special production and something of a departure from his recent live shows.

This will mark the first time any original former member of Genesis has toured the band's repertoire solely from the 1971 ' 1977 period and will comprise songs co-written by Steve from that period, including such classics as Supper's Ready, Dancing with the Moonlit Knight and The Musical Box. The line-up will feature the addition of Nad Sylvan as principal vocalist on several songs. The tour will commence in the US in early March and reach the UK in May 2013. For anyone who was a fan of Genesis, this will be a 'must see' event. Further dates to be announced.

The eagerly awaited album includes some of the most respected vocalists of our days in Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), Mikael Akerfeldt (Opeth), Simon Collins (Phil Collins' son), Amanda Lehmann, Conrad Keely, Francis Dunnery, Neal Morse, John Wetton, Nad Sylvan and Nik Kershaw; Steve Rothery of Marillion and Roine Stolt of The Flower Kings and Transatlantic also join in to share guitar duties, while Jeremy Stacey and Gary O'Toole are amongst the chosen drummers.

Tracklist con comentarios de Hackett, acá. Mikael Akerfeldt cantando Supper's Ready ! Steven Wilson en Can Utility ! No puedo esperar.


  1. Cómo lo amo. Gracias Mike! Son de esas cosas por las que dejaría de hacer lo que esté haciendo para sentarme inmediatamente a escuchar. El set list es impecable. Son los sonidos de mi adolescencia, con sus raíces todavía cercanas a mi infancia musical. Riesgoso revisitar aquellos sueños originales. Pero seguro que Steve lo logró, sueños transmutados para quienes ya somos otros y los mismos a la vez.

  2. Genesis se terminó cuando se fue Steve y entonces Quedaron Tres.
    Bienvenido sea pues este proyecto!

    1. Yo banco a Genesis hasta "Duke". Y te diría que hasta el primer tema de "Abacab" (cuando empieza "No Reply At All", es el fin). A partir de ahí es algún que otro tema. Y vuelvo a bancarlo después, con "Calling All Stations", el disco de 1997 con Ray Wilson como vocalista.
