The Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival: Steve Hackett, Genesis Revisited
November 25 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm€65
November will Rock at the Opera Garnier Monte-Carlo with Steve Hackett! Do not miss this amazing concert!
Stephen Richard is his real name, a British songwriter and performer known as the guitarist for Genesis from 1971 to 1977. A pioneer of the progressive genre, his electric guitar playing is based on an ethereal and experimental sound, favouring harmony and musicality rather than technical demonstration. This is how he developed a very particular poetic, offbeat and dreamlike sound universe, specific to his solo career which he began in 1975, producing key and critically acclaimed albums such as Selling England by the Pound (a favourite of John Lennon). Absent from tours for (too) a long time, in 2013 he released a new edition of his album Genesis Revisited which awakened the passion of his fans and gave way to feverish tours all around the world. In 2019, Steve’s live performances reached their peak and Hackett played a sold-out tour in which he merged the albums Morning, Selling England by the Pound and At the edge of Light. At the height of his career and acclaimed by critics, the artist announced a 2021 tour of Genesis’s live album, Seconds Out, recorded during a concert at the Palais des Sports in Paris in June 1977.
