Prog icon Steve Hackett has added 2 new dates to his October tour of Genesis Revisited, which features his band and a 41-piece orchestra as the London show at the Royal Festival Hall has already sold out!

Steve says “I always hoped that the Genesis music would one day involve an orchestra and I’m proud to say I’ll now be able to make that dream a reality on my next British tour, involving my own extraordinary rock band alongside a full-sized orchestra.” He goes on to say “I’m thrilled the forthcoming UK shows featuring full orchestra with the band are selling so well, and I’m excited we’re adding two extra dates… This promises to be an incredibly special experience!”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
