Steve Hackett to perform Genesis’ ‘Seconds Out’ on 2020 UK tour

From Planet Rock.

After selling over 30,000 tickets for his triumphant November 2019 shows, Steve Hackett has lined up a fresh Genesis Revisited UK tour for late 2020.

The Seconds Out + More! Tour takes in 22 headline shows, and opens at Brighton Dome on Sunday 1st November before calling in at Cardiff, Stoke, London (two nights at The Palladium), Edinburgh, Dundee, Carlisle, Newcastle, Scunthorpe, Bradford, Southampton, Cambridge, Oxford, Guildford, Bexhill-on-Sea, Birmingham, Manchester, Leicester, Basingstoke, Liverpool and Glasgow.

The lengthy month-long trek will see Steve Hackett perform Genesis’ 1977 live album ‘Seconds Out’ in its unadulterated entirety plus other tracks from his Genesis and solo repertoire, including concert favourite ‘The Steppes’ to celebrate the 40th birthday of his fourth solo album ‘Defector’.

Making the tour extra special, the dates in Edinburgh, Dundee, Newcastle, Southampton and Leicester are at the exact same venues Genesis visited on their Wind & Wuthering Tour in 1977 – Steve’s final tour with the band.

Steve 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!”

24-hour presale tickets go on sale from Planet Rock Tickets at 10am on Thursday 28th November.

Originally released on 14th October 1977, Seconds Out dented the UK album chart at number four and featured material from all six Genesis albums Steve contributed to before he left the band.

The Genesis line-up featured Hackett on guitar alongside Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks and Phil Collins.
