Ticket for Steve Hackett

Another Steve Hackett gig - the fifth since I started seeing him live again in the mid 2010s, and the sixth if you include the album launch for Wolflight.

Flyer for Steve Hackett

Another rainy night in Southend with virtually no parking all over town - I timed my entrance perfectly with about 30 seconds to spare. Steve's show this time round consisted of playing one of his early solo albums and one of his Genesis classics, as you can see from the flyer. It's become a tried and tested formula and it works perfectly.

The Selling England setlist was enhanced by addition of Deja Vu - a song that Hackett had worked on with Peter Gabriel when they were writing the album in 1972, and which Steve has recently completed with Pete's blessing.
