Steve Hackett on Merseyside!!!
Photograph and report by Patrick Trollope

THE world famous Steve Hackett was in Liverpool on, 13 November 2010, to have a look around Liverpool ahead of his tour visit to Merseyside which will see him playing, on 27 November 2010, at the Pacific Road Arts (pacificroad.co.uk) in Birkenhead. Having spent much of this year touring the world with his 'Around the World in 80 Trains' show, he now returns to the UK. The tour has been set up to promote Steve Hackett’s 2009 album, 'Out Of The Tunnel’s Mouth' which has received unanimous acclaim from the media and fans alike. Also, that album has also been nominated for Album of the Year in the Classic Rock Magazine’s Roll of Honour Awards! Steve is joined on the road by Roger King (keyboards), Nick Beggs (bass, stick and vocals), Gary O’Toole (drums & vocals), Rob Townsend (Various saxes, flute, whistle and vocals) and Amanda Lehmann (guitar and vocals). Steve promises that his new show will feature at least one additional Genesis song, as well as Sierra Quemada, Golden Age of Steam, Shadow of the Hierophant and Valley of the Kings. Fans will also be treated to a brand new, never heard before track. Steve told the media in a press release that:- “It's been great to take the Train on the Road tour around the world, but as Dorothy says... ''There's no place like home'' and I'm really looking forward to touring the UK again -  My electric band will be celebrating the special edition of my album "Out of the Tunnel's Mouth", along with some surprise numbers...!” So get your name down for a ticket as this will be a whirlwind of a show! Anyway, as Steve was in our good city, we had to get over and do an interview with him. Very kindly he agreed to do a video interview and not only on here, but also on our video archive site Southport.TV now...!!!  Also if you cannot get to the show, we recommended you visit his new online shop at hackettsongs.com and also keep an eye out for a Live Recording of this tour, that he will be doing in London! If you do not know who he is, we recommended you also visit his Wikipedia link.
