Steve Hackett Announces Foxtrot At Fifty U.K. Tour Dates

Former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett has announced dates for his “Genesis Revisited – Foxtrot at Fifty + Hackett Highlights” tour for 2022.

The tour will mark the 50th anniversary of the legendary Genesis album Foxtrot. The album was critically acclaimed and became the first Genesis album to make the U.K. album charts.

The trek is set to kick off on September 9 in Swansea and conclude on October 12 at Hammersmith’s Eventim Apollo in London. Tickets go on general sale at 10 am on Friday, December 10.

“I think ‘Foxtrot’ was a terrific achievement for Genesis at that time. I think there is not one weak track on the album, they all have their strong points and I’m really looking forward to doing the whole album live,” Hackett said in a statement.

“We were a young, struggling band at that time. By the time we were doing ‘Foxtrot’ the band was becoming more ambitious. ‘Foxtrot’ is a must for fans of the early Genesis work,” he added. “Fifty years ago? It doesn’t feel like those ideas are fifty years old because it was-genre defining, rather than following trends. It still sounds current, now.”
