Steve Hackett: Genesis Revisited — Foxtrot at 50
Doors: 6:30PM | Show: 7:30PM
Hold onto your seats, music lovers! The guitar virtuoso extraordinaire, Steve Hackett, is gearing up to deliver a monumental performance at the legendary Kalamazoo State Theatre on Saturday, March 23, 2024. Brace yourselves for an unforgettable night as Hackett takes us on a time-traveling journey through the iconic Genesis Revisited – Foxtrot at Fifty + Hackett Highlights tour, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the legendary Genesis album Foxtrot.
Hot on the heels of his immensely successful solo tour, Steve Hackett’s Genesis Revisited – Foxtrot at Fifty + Hackett Highlights tour in 2022 became a resounding hit. This tour celebrates the timeless influence of Foxtrot, the album that played a pivotal role in establishing Genesis as a major force in British rock back in 1972.
Steve Hackett joined Genesis in 1971 and made his band debut on the Nursery Cryme album, which gained greater commercial success in Europe than in the UK. The band’s extensive touring and enthusiastic audience reactions encouraged them to push the boundaries of music, experimenting with longer compositions and narrative-driven performances. This artistic evolution allowed frontman Peter Gabriel to incorporate theatrical elements into their shows, further elevating the band’s profile.
Starting in 2023, Steve Hackett is set to bring Foxtrot at Fifty to North America, following the massive success of his 2022 UK tour. Speaking about the upcoming tour, Steve Hackett said, “I think Foxtrot was a terrific achievement for Genesis at that time. I think there is not one weak track on the album; they all have their strong points, and I’m really looking forward to doing the whole album live.”
Prepare to be transported back to the golden era of progressive rock as Steve Hackett and his talented band deliver a mesmerizing performance featuring the iconic tracks from Foxtrot and other Hackett highlights.
