Since its release in October 2012,whenitentered the UK album chart at number 24,Genesis Revisited IIhas collected rave reviews:works wonderfully (Classic Rock),It's faithful, full-blooded(Mail on Sunday),a wonderful listen(Music News) are only a few of the expressions used by critics to describe this outstanding tribute to the unforgettable prog pioneers. The album celebrates the Genesis period between 1971 and 1977 - known as the band's 'Golden Era' - and follows the first instalment released by Hackett in 1996.  

TheGenesis Revisited Tourwill be Hackett's biggest production to date, incorporating classics from both Genesis Revisited albums in a unique show not to be missed.
