Music news

Legendary Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett returns to Italy with the show “Genesis Greats – Lamb Highlights & Solo”.

After the summer leg with “FOXTROT AT FIFTY + HACKETT HIGHLIGHTS” here he is with the tour that marks the 50th anniversary of the magnificent “The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway”, an iconic album released in November 1974 and of which many will be played again during the live among the most successful songs.


I’m looking forward to the 2024 tour, which includes favorites from ‘The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway’ and other iconic Genesis songs along with some solo gems.”

Steve Hackett’s timeless guitar wove the sound of all Genesis’ 70s classics, brought back live in recent years with great success by Hackett himself and his exceptional band. On stage Steve Hackett is in fact accompanied by exceptional musicians: Roger King (Gary Moore, The Mute Gods) on keyboards; on drums, percussion and vocals Craig Blundell (Steven Wilson); Rob Townsend (Bill Bruford) on sax, flute and percussion; Jonas Reingold (The Flower Kings) on bass and guitar; Nad Sylvan (Agents of Mercy) on vocals.

Fans have always asked to hear more tracks from the album “The Lamb lies Down On Broadway” live again. What better way to celebrate half a century of this extraordinary album than to include a selection of Lamb Highlights alongside some of Hackett’s best solo work and the unmissable Genesis Greats?
