Genesis legend Steve Hackett announces New Zealand & Australian shows in 2020!

Presented By DRW Entertainment

Following the one/two punch of NURSERY CRYME and FOXTROT (both albums driven by the muscular guitars of new member Steve Hackett), Genesis were ready to launch what would become their finest album, SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND.

Finally, now, 47 years after the album’s release; Hackett will be performing SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND in full in New Zealand and Australia (One Date only in New Zealand).  

In addition, in celebration of the 40th anniversary of its release, Hackett will be performing his critically acclaimed solo album SPECTRAL MORNINGS.

And if that’s not enough, Hackett will perform selections from his stunning new album AT THE EDGE OF LIGHT, and may even be munificent enough to throw in another couple of Genesis tunes.  

Says Hackett “This time will be a special show, including the whole of Genesis album SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND, also celebrating my solo album SPECTRAL MORNINGS 40th anniversary, plus more! I can’t wait!”
Hackett’s exceptional debut antipodean tour in 2017 left audiences stunned by the majestic performances by Hackett and his virtuoso band. How do you top that? Come witness the spectacle of Steve Hackett’s incendiary 2020’s shows to see how it’s done.
