According to HackettSongs.com, Steve Hackett and his band will be performing a ‘Genesis Revisited’ show with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra (BPO) as part of the BPO Rocks season. Tickets are already on sale for the March 3rd 2017 show, available from the BPO website.
The only details on HackettSongs describes the show as follows: Exclusive Genesis show with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra with Steve and his band on March 3! Following the Cruise Feb 7-11, Steve will also be playing various N American dates all to be arranged shortly. Watch This Space!
Kleinhans Music Hall, Friday 3 March 2017, 8:00pm…
Other than Steve’s welcome return to the 2017 edition of ‘Cruise To The Edge‘, no confirmed North American dates have been announced yet, just hoping Canada is once again included in the tour which will presumably be around mid February to March 2017.
The BPO website adds little detail, other than to muddy the waters slightly with the following: Genesis lead guitarist and rock innovator Steve Hackett displays his chops in the world premiere of his symphony show, concert featuring Genesis classics and solo hits.
Whether the show is Genesis exclusively or Genesis with Solo material, the chance to see Steve performing these songs with an orchestra is not to be missed.
