VIP Meet & Greet
We regret to advise that Steve Hackett and David Roy Williams Entertainment have rescheduled Steve’s Australian and New Zealand dates to the first half of 2022. The tour has regrettably been postponed due to difficulties getting Steve and band into the country.
The concert scheduled for Friday 21 May 2021 will be rescheduled to Friday 17 June 2022 at the same venue.
Now bringing in a bigger and better show, not only will be Steve being performing “Selling England By The Pound” in its entirety, but Steve will also be including our favourite Genesis live album “Seconds Out” featuring ‘The Carpet Crawlers’, ‘Afterglow’, ‘The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway’, ‘Suppers Ready’ and more !
A statement from the Artist:
“We’ve been wanting to come back to Australia and New Zealand so much, and whilst the unavoidable postponements are disappointing, we know the anticipation will be such that when we do finally get there, the concerts will be so much sweeter. We are really looking forward to bringing back live music to you all” Steve Hackett

‘… their arguable high-water mark’ - All Music
‘…the band’s most adventurous album…’- NME
Steve Hackett, as the powerhouse guitarist for one of the most important progressive rock bands ever, has been a guiding influence for musicians and guitarists for over forty years.
Following the one/two punch of Nursery Cryme and Foxtrot, both driven by the muscular guitars of new member Steve Hackett, Genesis were ready to launch what would become their finest album, Selling England By The Pound.
Easing back on the throttle marginally, and immersing themselves in English whimsy and eccentricity, Genesis delivered just under an hour of delicate prose, wondrous melodies and, of course, the soaring lead lines of Steve Hackett.
Now, forty-seven years after the album’s release, Steve Hackett will be performing Selling England By The Pound in full, in a series of Australian and New Zealand concerts.
In addition, in celebration of the fortieth-anniversary of its release, Steve will be performing his critically acclaimed solo album Spectral Mornings.
And if that’s not enough, Steve will perform selections from his stunning new album At The Edge Of Light, and may even be munificent enough to throw in another couple of Genesis tunes.
Steve’s exceptional debut Antipodean tour in 2017 left audiences stunned by the majestic performances by Hackett and his virtuoso band. How do you top that? Come witness the spectacle of Steve’s incendiary 2020 shows to see how it’s done.
We are pleased to advise that The Steve Hackett Show will now take place on Friday 21 May 2021 at Auckland Town Hall. Please retain your ticket/s as they will remain valid for the rescheduled show.
