'With both the Genesis Revisited tour and album I feel I've given people something they had really wanted for a long time' says legendary guitarist Steve Hackett, and that certainly seemed to be the case when he released 'Genesis Revisited II' in October 2012. Met with a vociferous and fantastic response from fans and critics alike, it was clear that there was an appetite for these classic songs, with the album reaching the number 26 spot in the UK National Album Charts.
The ensuing tour was met with an equally stunning reception, and on the 10th May 2013, Steve Hackett and his band performed a sold-out show at London's legendary Hammersmith Apollo. For that night, his usual band which includes Nad Sylvan (vocals), Lee Pomeroy (bass & twelve-string), Roger King (keyboards), Gary O'Toole (drums) and Rob Townsend (saxophone, woodwind) were joined by a host of guests that had previously appeared on the studio album, to create a special show. As Steve himself remarks, 'playing to a sold-out Hammersmith Apollo was truly a homecoming to remember and in front of such a great crowd.'
Joining him for the rapturously received performance that evening were Nik Kershaw, John Wetton, Amanda Lehman, Steve Rothery and Jakko Jaksyzk, who all gave sublime performances on the night, providing their considerable talents on tracks like 'The Lamia' and 'Afterglow'. Not only that, but the band tackled the full 23- minute progressive rock classic 'Supper's Ready' as well as other fan favourites such as 'Watcher Of The Skies' and 'Dance On A Volcano'. 'A particular moment from the London show that I remember is the standing ovation to The Musical Box; I felt the team really delivered 'says Hackett, but the reality is that the evening was full of these kind of moments from start to finish, and this DVD document is proof of that.
