Steve Hackett has never been afraid to break up and move on. The british virtuosgitarristen learned to play by three different bands, and became known as a member of Genesis mytologiserade early 70 talsuppställning and left in 1977, when the group's success began to stand in the way of creativity.
He began a solo career that quickly spread in all possible directions – progressive rock, classical, world music and well-known partners came and went in a steady stream. Brian May, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Jimmy Page and The Yardbirds-members. In the 80s there was a quick stint in the supergroup GTR. It held in two years.

Hackett with friends have put together a full-scale concert program, complete with the pee break and easily provided intense contact to the audience. They deserve a teatersal and seated visitors who may be listening properly.
