Hackett‘s intricate guitar work was a key element of Genesis‘ albums from “Nursery Cryme” (1971) to “Wind And Wuthering” (1977) including the iconic “Selling England By The Pound.”   After leaving Genesis at the end of 1977, Hackett’s solo career, which now spans more than 30 albums, has demonstrated his extraordinary versatility with both electric and acoustic guitar. Hackett is renowned as both an immensely talented and innovative Rock musician and a virtuoso classical guitarist and composer and this was recognised in 2010 when he was inducted into the Rock And Rock Hall Of Fame. He has also worked alongside Steve Howe of YES in the supergroup GTR.   Hackett‘s compositions take influences from many genres, including Jazz, Classical and Blues. For his studio works “The Night Siren” (2017) and “At The Edge Of Light” (2019) Hackett has also explored the influences of world music. Recent tours have seen Hackett celebrate his time with Genesis including a spectacular 2018 tour in which he realised a long-held ambition to perform the works of Genesis live with his band and an orchestra.   The lockdown enforced by the 2020 global pandemic has proven to be a particularly creative period for Hackett. He began by releasing “Selling England by the Pound & Spectral Mornings: Live at Hammersmith,” a live recording of 2019’s hugely successful tour celebrating that Genesis classic together with the 40th anniversary of one of his most-loved solo albums. Lockdown also gave Hackett the opportunity to write and record two new studio albums in 2021: the UK Classical Chart hit “Under A Mediterranean Sky” and the hit Rock album “Surrender of Silence.”   Hackett and his band enjoyed a return to touring withGenesis Revisited – Seconds Out + More!” (2021) and “Genesis Revisited – Foxtrot At Fifty” (2022). Subsequently, the live album “Genesis Revisited – Seconds Out + More!, released in 2022, became Hackett’s most successful-ever live album reaching number 28 in the UK Album Chart and achieving highest-ever chart positions in several European countries.  He recently released the live album from the 2022 tour – “Foxtrot at Fifty + Hackett Highlights – Live in Brighton.” Hackett takes the “Foxtrot at Fifty Tour” to the USA from 3rd October through to 18th November.
