Steve's live gigs, such as the one represented here on 'Live Rails', take his fans on an extraordinary journey drawn from a rich musical heritage. His unique guitar work remains the fulcrum on which this challenging and exhilarating show is balanced.

Steve Hackett is renowned as an immensely talented and innovative rock musician. He was lead guitarist with Genesis as part of their classic line-up with Gabriel, Collins, Banks and Rutherford, that produced acclaimed albums such as 'Selling England by the Pound' (a favourite of John Lennon). With Steve's extraordinary versatility in both his six-string work as well as composing, he incorporates influences from many genres, including jazz, various world musics and blues.

Steve's live electric gigs, such as the one represented here on 'Live Rails', take his fans on an extraordinary journey drawn from a rich musical heritage. Perennial Genesis favourites such as the mighty "Firth of Fifth" sit alongside solo classics, while more recent material, with much of 'Out of the Tunnel's Mouth' now included, demonstrate that Steve is an artist still at the very top of his game. Supported by some of the best musicians on the planet, Steve's unique guitar playing remains the fulcrum on which this challenging and exhilarating show is balanced.
