Steve told us: "I'm excited to bring my latest show involving a new set of Genesis and Hackett numbers to the UK in 2017."

With an established solo career spanning over forty years, Steve will also be performing some of his popular hits such as 'The Steppes', 'Serpentine', 'Every Day' and the first ever live performance of 'Rise Again' from his 1999 album 'Darktown'. Steve will also be introducing fans to new music from his forthcoming album, which is due out early spring 2017.

Joining Steve on the tour are musicians Roger King (keyboards), Gary O'Toole (drums/percussion), Rob Townsend (saxes/flutes), Nick Beggs (bass, stick and twelve string) and Nad Sylvan on vocals.

Since the 1970s Steve has had a remarkable musical career, releasing more than thirty solo albums, seven Genesis albums and working alongside Steve Howe of Yes with supergroup GTR.
