Steve Hackett announces Foxtrot at Fifty North American tour

Steve Hackett onstage

Former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett has announced a US tour to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the band's 1972 album Foxtrot. The run of 29 Foxtrot at Fifty shows will kick off on October 3 at Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier in Montreal, QC, and wrap up six weeks later at the Lobero Theatre in Santa Barbara, CA, on November 18.

“I’m thrilled to be bringing my ‘Genesis Revisited: Foxtrot at Fifty + Hackett Highlights’ tour to the USA and Canada in the autumn," says Hackett, "and very much look forward to seeing you all then!”

Hackett played a run of 25 UK Foxtrot at Fifty dates in September and October 2022. In announcing those shows, he said, "We were a young, struggling band at that time. By the time we were doing Foxtrot the band was becoming more ambitious. 

"Foxtrot is a must for fans of the early Genesis work. Fifty years ago? It doesn’t feel like those ideas are fifty years old because it was-genre defining, rather than following trends. It still sounds current, now.” 

The North American shows are in addition to an extensive run of previously-announced European Foxtrot At 50 dates, which kick off on April 19 at La Seine Musicale in Paris, France. Full dates below - tickets are on sale now
