Steve Hackett Southend Gig Review 6/10/22


"So another fantastic evening delivered by the Keeper of the Flame and this fantastic band. Everything represented faithfully and accurately (as it should be) by a band of consummately gifted and egoless musicians. Roger, Rob and Nad as flawless as ever, and (relative) new boys Jonas and Craig now firmly settled after a couple of tours to the extent where they are presenting a solo spot each and also adding very slight and subtle embellishments to the parts they have learnt and play so well."


As part of his Foxtrot at Fifty + Hackett Highlights 25-date UK tour that ends at London's Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith next Wednesday 12th October, legendary guitarist and 2021 WRC Best Prog Performance winner, Steve Hackett, stopped of at Southend's Cliffs Pavilion on Monday night, so today not only read Mark C's complete take on proceedings, but also check out some of Mark's photos plus our 'Watcher Of The Skies' Video Of The Day from the night.
