Former Genesis Guitarist Steve Hackett To Release Live DVD In January

On Friday, January 26th, 2018, Inside Out Music will release Wuthering Nights: Live in Birmingham, a new live DVD/Blu-ray Disc from guitarist Steve Hackett.
Filmed at the Birmingham Symphony Hall during Hackett’s recent Genesis Revisited & Classic Hackett tour, the set will also be released on CD, as well as digitally.

This tour marked the 40th anniversary of Wind & Wuthering, Hackett’s last album with Genesis.
Hackett and his band played five tracks from the album:  "Eleventh Earl Of Mar, "One For The Vine," "Blood On The Rooftops," "…In That Quiet Earth" and "Afterglow."

Others from Hackett’s Genesis days that were revisited, include "Dance On A Volcano," "Inside & Out," "Firth Of Fifth," "The Musical Box" and "Los Endos."
This show marks the first-ever live performances of "One For The Vine" and "Inside & Out." It also includes many solo songs, including  material from his 2017 release, The Night Siren.

“I'm excited about the imminent release of Wuthering Nights," Hackett remarks. "It felt special to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Wind & Wuthering, the Genesis album I had the most songwriting involvement with and a favorite among many fans. Sit back and enjoy!”

The DVD / Blu-ray Disc also includes behind-the-scenes footage, most of which was filmed on the day in Birmingham. There are also three videos for tracks from The Night Siren: "Behind The Smoke," "Fifty Miles From The North Pole" and "West To East."
