Steve Hackett lists 2015 UK dates

Steve Hackett has confirmed a 19-date tour of the UK in October 2015, to follow the release of his next solo album, Wolflight, in the spring.

It’ll be his first British run after completing his award-winning Genesis Extended series of performances.

The shows will feature material from throughout his 40-year career, from debut solo album Voyage of the Acolyte – celebrating its 40th anniversary – to Wolflight, along with a “sprinkling of Genesis.”

Hackett says: “I’m hugely excited about the new album and incorporating it into next year’s tour, which will involve both classic and contemporary, with several surprises.”

Full details are available via his website.
