Steve Hackett: Carpet Crawlers with Ray Wilson

Steve Hackett has launched a clip from his upcoming live DVD in which he performs Genesis classic Carpet Crawlers with Ray Wilson.

Hackett was joined at London’s Royal Albert Hall for a unique Genesis Revisited show by guests Roine Stolt, John Wetton and Amanda Lehmann, and his band Roger King, Gary O’Toole, Rob Townsend, Lee Pomeroy and Nad Sylvan.

The guitarist said: “It was a thrilling musical experience for all concerned with a fantastic light and visual show. Paul Green and his team filmed it brilliantly too. It’s a feast for eyes, ears and all the senses.”

Genesis Revisited: Live At The Royal Albert Hall will be released via Inside Out on June 30. He’ll tour the UK in October with what’s planned to be the last of his retrospective treks, set to include material not previously performed or recorded in his long-running Genesis Revisited project.
