Steve Hackett Band – Genesis Revisited – Glenside, PA

Ah, the completion of my trifecta of Steve Hackett Band concerts on this 2013 US/Canadian Tour.  I had a chance to see the second of two shows held in Glenside, PA at the Keswick Theater (even better to attend the concert with my brother!).  It’s evident that the theater is undergoing a restoration…so a bit of the feeling of Darktown was the aura of the venue (with Gog and Magog swarming around and the ghosts of Keswick conspiring a bit on the house PA system, briefly!).

It was another fabulous night and the band was energetic and tight for this penultimate show on the US tour (the last being tonight in New Jersey before returning to the UK for a brief rest and then a series of UK shows).  If you can, go see the concerts–they are a real treat.  Last night The Lamia returned to the setlist once again.  As always, if you copy and share the photos, please credit “wajobu.com”–thank you.

    Great pictures from a great show!
    I was there at the Saturday show as well. You could tell the true professionals as they kept at it despite the two (or three?) quirks with the PA system. It was a real treat hearing the audience singing along with Supper’s Ready despite no sound coming from the stage (myself included).

    Friday nite at the Keswick was flawless! The band was tight and having fun. Kudos to the chap handing out the Hackett live at the Keswick pins!
