Steve Hackett Genesis Revisited - Seconds Out & MoreMonday 9 November 2020
25th November 2019: Off the back of his most successful solo tour yet, selling over 30 thousand tickets for his 2019 UK dates, Steve Hackett has announced that his 2020/21 World Tour will feature the whole of the 1977 Genesis live album Seconds Out in full, plus More!
Seconds Out was the hugely successful double album recorded on Genesis' 1977 concert tour together with The Cinema Show, from their 1976 tour, and featured Steve Hackett on guitar alongside Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks and Phil Collins who had taken on the role of vocalist
following the departure of Peter Gabriel. The tour included music from each of the six studio albums from Steve's time in Genesis and marked his final recordings with the band as he left to pursue his solo career upon its completion.
The Seconds Out + More! Tour will visit some of the venues Genesis played on that 1977 tour. There will also be additional material, including Steve's solo concert favourite The Steppes to celebrate the 40th birthday of his fourth solo album Defector.
Steve Hackett says: "I'm thrilled to bring Seconds Out back to life, featuring Genesis material at its most exciting and virtuosic, this time with all numbers played in full plus additional surprises!"
About Steve Hackett
Steve Hackett joined Genesis at the beginning of 1971 and gained an international reputation as the guitarist in the band's classic line-up alongside Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford and Phil Collins. Steve's intricate guitar work was a key element of Genesis' albums from Nursery Cryme (1971) to Wind And Wuthering (1977) including the classic Selling England By The Pound.
After leaving Genesis at the end of 1977, Steve's solo career, which now spans more than 30 albums, has demonstrated his extraordinary versatility with both electric and acoustic guitar. Steve is renowned as both an immensely talented and innovative rock musician and a virtuoso classical guitarist and composer and this was recognised in 2010 when he was inducted into the Rock Hall Of Fame. He has also worked alongside Steve Howe of YES in the supergroup GTR.
Steve's compositions take influences from many genres, including jazz, classical and blues. For his later studio works The Night Siren (2017) and At The Edge Of Light (2019) Steve has explored the influences of world music. Recent tours have seen Steve celebrate his time with Genesis including a spectacular 2018 tour in which Steve realised a long-held ambition to perform the works of Genesis live with his band and an orchestra.
Reviews from Steve Hackett's most recent Genesis Revisited Tour
'the night's prog feast.. was Selling England' ' which allowed the guitarist's band to fully showcase their talents…' 'for one evening at least it was fantastic to dance with the Moonlit Knight once more.' Simon Carter - The News Portsmouth
'Hackett's guitar effortlessly carves a path through the songs mixing melodic lines with experimentation and flat out rock...' 'The individual personalities of the band also shine throughout…' Stuart Avis -The Brighton Magazine
'a great riff, great lyrics and another guitar solo to die for...' 'the magic seems never-ending...' Alan Jones – Getreadytorock
'complex time changes and elaborate melodies were recreated by Hackett's superb band with verve and skill.' 'Hackett may well be the best guitarist around. Oh, and a great light show too. Obviously.' S Copeland - Brighton Argus
Gary Meikle - SurrealSaturday 12 December 2020
“After his meteoric rise through the ranks, Scottish Comedy Award winner and viral sensation Gary Meikle is back with his second tour show, Surreal! A word that perfectly describes Gary’s last twelve months. He started the year performing in comedy clubs, and ended it selling out big theatres in the UK as well as tours in America, Canada and Europe! .
Not one for mincing his words, Gary has been described as “playfully dark”. His cheeky chappie nature and ability to get away with talking about anything will have you laughing at things you probably shouldn’t be! As always, Gary will draw material from his own real-life experiences, including his unique family dynamic and his rapid rise to online fame. Quickly putting his audiences at ease, a night of stand up with Gary feels like a night in the pub chatting with friends!
Having performed to tens of thousands of people over the past year, Gary has found a new confidence and level of openness on stage, meaning he doesn’t hold back on giving his opinions, no matter how warped! The new show will cover topics such as evolution, social media, how to deal with burglars, single mums, bee sex, small man syndrome and much more. Gary is a fast paced, punchy storyteller that finds the funny in anything!”

GEORGE - Celebrating the songs and Music of George Michael Monday 4 May 2020
GEORGE UK TOUR 2020
The definitive celebration of the music of George Michael
Featuring: Rob Lamberti With: The National Philharmonic Concert Orchestra & Former Members of the George Michael Band: Carlos Hercules and David Baptiste
DUNDEE CAIRD HALL
MONDAY 4 MAY 2020
Following its premiere earlier this year in venues around the UK, including a sell-out performance at London’s Eventim Apollo, George - the definitive show celebrating the music of George Michael – will return for a UK tour in 2020, including a performance at Dundee Caird Hall on Monday 4 May 2020, presented by LHG Live in association with Derek Nicol and Paul Walden for Flying High.
Featuring the incredible voice of Rob Lamberti, alongside the National Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, as well as long-time members of George Michael’s original band, the show has wowed audiences around the country and lifted them to their feet, in a dynamic show that tactfully and appropriately celebrates the career of one of the most gifted performers of a generation.
From Wham! all the way through to the diverse eras of George’s hugely successful solo career, including the timeless hits like Careless Whisper, Faith, Fastlove, Club Tropicana, and so many more, the show tells the story of George Michael in the vast repertoire songs that made him an icon to so many.
George instantly became a fan favourite across social media. Quite simply, as leading theatre blog West End Wilma called, ‘a… brilliant show…. nothing short of perfection, and what a magical way to pay homage to the late and great, Mr George Michael.’
Rob Lamberti is a star in his own right after featuring on the BBC’s ‘Even Better Than the Real Thing’ in 2017. Bearing a voice worthy of performing George’s remarkable catalogue of hits, he has gone on to establish a successful career playing homage to his hero. Rob also features in the upcoming Steve Coogan film ‘Greed’.
Joining Rob to make the show even more of a special occasion is the addition of two of George Michael’s long-time band members: David Baptiste and Carlos Hercules.
Saxophone player David Baptiste performed with George Michael since his Wham! days, including their heralded show in China when the group became the first Western pop group to perform in the country in 1984. He has also performed with artists such as Billy Ocean and Alexander O’Neal.
Carlos Hercules performed as the drummer in George’s band for several years and was the first drummer to perform at the new Wembley Stadium as part of George’s huge show there in 2007. Carlos has also performed with artists such as The Eurythmics, Beverley Knight and performed live at the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony.
Together, Rob Lamberti, David Baptiste, and Carlos Hercules will be joined by an incredible band as well as the National Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, in a unique, definitive and powerful celebration of the incredible music of George Michael.
Liz Doogan-Hobbs MBE, CEO of LHG Live said, “We are delighted to be bringing yet another concert to Dundee off the back of the hugely successful summer of LHG Live produced and promoted concerts in this wonderful city. The George Tour has enjoyed immense success across the UK, and we have no doubt that it will prove popular not just with George Michael fans in Dundee but with anyone who is looking for a brilliant night out. George Michael remains one of the most iconic music stars to come out of the UK, and the George tour is a true celebration of his brilliance.
