An ecstatic Steve Hackett comments: "I'm excited the Steve Hackett Genesis Revisited show at the extraordinary Royal Albert Hall is being released on both DVD and Blu-Ray in 5.1. It was a thrilling musical experience for all concerned with a fantastic light / visual show! Paul Green and team filmed it brilliantly too. It's a feast for eyes, ears and all the senses..."
