Steve Hackett is renowned as an immensely talented and innovative rock musician. He was lead guitarist with Genesis as part of their classic line up with Gabriel, Collins, Banks and Rutherford, that produced acclaimed albums such as Selling England by the Pound (a favourite of John Lennon). With Steve’s extraordinary versatility in both his electric guitar playing and his composing, he involves influences from many genres, including Jazz, World Music and Blues. He is equally adept in his classical albums that include renditions of pieces by composers from Bach to Satie, his own acoustic guitar compositions that have gained the admiration of many, including Yehudi Menuhin, and ambitious guitar/ orchestra albums such as A Midsummer Night’s Dream, recorded with the Royal Philharmonic.

With Genesis, Steve’s guitar playing produced some of the most memorable moments, from the sensitivity of his acoustic sound on Horizons and Blood on the Rooftops the dramatic rock guitar solos of Firth of Fifth and Fountain of Salmacis. As he embarked on his solo career he developed his exceptional range, pushing musical boundaries into exciting areas, inventing new sounds and also techniques such as ‘tapping’. His solo career went from strength to strength and the mid eighties not only saw the hit single Cell 151, but also the Steve Hackett and Steve Howe super group GTR, highly successful in America.

    Having been a Genesis fan since the 70’s, I was disappointed that I never saw Steve Hackett play with the group though I saw the band live 11 times since the …And Then There Were Three tour. I still own Hackett to Pieces on vinyl and disc and play it at top volume. This would be a great present for myself (and a guest). I hope that you will consider me for the tickets.

    I’ve never seen Steve Hackett and I’d sure LOVE to win tickets.
    It would be so PROGRESSIVE of you to PICK ME!

    Thanks!

    Mr Hackett is a living guitar playing music legend. And he’s performing the Hell out of not only the old Genesis gems but his incredible solo catalog. I would love to be there for this one. Please consider me for the free tickets! And thank you for the opportunity!

    Phenomenal guitarist bring a brilliant album to life — what could be better? Genesis lost out big time when he left.
