Steve Hackett Live at the Keswick Theatre in Glenside PA. September 28, 2019



One of the great guitar players in progressive rock played at the Keswick Theatre, in Glenside PA on Saturday, September 28, 2019. For those of you who don’t know, Steve Hackett is of course, the original guitarist of Genesis, who co-wrote some of Genesis’ great works. Steve, unfortunately left Genesis after “Wind & Wuthering”. The touring band with Steve was great & included some big names in progressive rock. The band line up was Steve Hackett on guitar & vocals, Nad Sylvan (Agents Of Mercy) on vocals, Roger King (Gary Moore, Snoop Dog) on keyboards, Rob Townsend (Bill Bruford, James Taylor) on percussion, flute, saxophone, keyboards & vocals, Jonas Reingold, who you may know from the Flower Kings, and, Karmakanic, Tangent, and, Kaipa, on bass & vocals, and, Craig Blundell on drums. The set started off with “Every Day” then went into “Under The Eye Of The Sun”, “Fallen Walls & Pedestals”, “Beast In Our Time”, “The Virgin & The Gypsy”, “Tigermoth”, a nice instrumental piece, “Spectral Mornings”, celebrating 40 years of this album, “The Red Flower Of Tachai Blooms Everywhere”, “Clocks – The Angel Of Mons”. The band then took a 20 minute break, and came back with the “SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND” set, in it’s entirety, which started off with “Dancing With The Moonlit Knight”, then went into “I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)”, “Firth Of Fifth, “More Fool Me”, “The Battle Of Epping Forest”, “After The Ordeal”, “The Cinema Show”, and, “Aisle Of Plenty”. The band went offstage for a minute or so, then came back with a song that was written for this album, but, was never released. The song was “Deja Vu” written by Hackett & Peter Gabriel, and was played with Peter’s blessing. Then the band went into “Dance On A Volcano”, a Genesis favorite for most people. The band left again, & came back for their encore which was “Myopia/ Slogans/ Los Endos. It was a last minute concert for me that I’ve been wanting to see for the past few tours that he’s been in the Philadelphia area. I’m so very glad that I did. Steve enjoyed talking with the crowd & the band really made this show Exceptional. I give this show 5 out of 5 Music Guru stars.
