MetalTalk is going progressive for our Gig Of The Week as Steve Hackett comes to Dublin on Wednesday April 26th, followed by the start of his UK tour in Cardiff on April 28th. Hackett will be touring throughout the UK for the next three weeks with the final show at the prestigious London Palladium on May 19th.

He will be performing songs from his new album, 'The Night Siren', which hit the Top 40 in the national album charts, plus he'll be revisiting the Genesis album 'Wind And Wuthering'.

It’s forty years since Hackett recorded his last studio album with prog giants Genesis before leaving the band to embark on his highly successful solo career. That album was 'Wind And Wuthering'. Now Steve and his incredible band celebrate this classic work's fortieth anniversary by treating audiences to thrilling renditions of tracks from the album.

The show features more Genesis gems, including fan favourites such as 'The Musical Box' as well as 'Inside & Out' which was released on an EP shortly after 'Wind And Wuthering' and 'One For The Vine' which have never been performed by Steve and his band until now.

Steve told us:

"I'm thrilled to bring my latest show of Genesis and Hackett numbers to the UK, adding additional numbers such as ‘One For The Vine’ and celebrating the fortieth anniversary of 'Wind And Wuthering', one of my favourite Genesis albums and popular with Genesis fans the world over."
