Genesis Guitarist Steve Hackett Talks ‘Selling England by the Pound’ Tour

“Genesis is a very competitive band, and there’s still that tension when we get in the same room,” Hackett says. “But at the end of the day, I honor the music politics-free”

The last time Steve Hackett played New York’s Beacon Theatre, it was April 1976, and Genesis had been on their first tour without frontman Peter Gabriel for a mere two weeks. They’d just promoted Phil Collins from drummer to singer, but they were very unsure if audiences would accept the change. “Everything is clear in hindsight,” says Hackett. “But we didn’t know if we’d be accepted by audiences that wanted us in the batwings playing ‘Watcher of the Skies.’ It wasn’t a foregone conclusion that this would work.”

It worked better than anyone could have ever dreamed, and during the next decade, Genesis went from theaters to arenas and eventually football stadiums. Hackett jumped ship in late 1977, prior to much of that success, but he’s spent the last few years on a series of Genesis Revisited tours where he plays classic songs from the band’s catalog along with a set of his solo tunes. He’s spent the last few months playing their landmark 1973 LP Selling England by the Pound in its entirety all across Europe, and on September 12th, he’s kicking off a North American tour that wraps up on October 20th. It includes a September 25th return trip to the Beacon, which will be his most high-profile New York show since he left Genesis 42 years ago.

We spoke to Hackett about the Selling England by the Pound tour, what compels him to keep playing this music when his former bandmates largely don’t go anywhere near it, and the ever-dwindling prospects of a Genesis reunion.
