Steve Hackett was a member of Genesis from 1971 till 1977, when he left the band to pursue his solo career full time. He had released his first solo album, Voyage of the Acolyte, in 1975 while still with Genesis, and has maintained a steady output since. He is a distinctive and versatile guitarist who also performs classical concerts and has released five classical albums in addition to many rock, progressive, and blues albums. He participated in the 1986 formation of GTR with Steve Howe
His concerts feature many songs from his days with Genesis, among them Firth of Fifth, Hairless Heart, Blood on the Rooftops, Fly on a Windshield, Horizons and Los Endos, while exploring his extensive catalogue of solo recordings. Tours alternate between acoustic performances (often accompanied by Steve's brother John Hackett (flute) and Roger King (keyboards) as the Steve Hackett Acoustic Trio) and more rock-oriented performances.
