Steve Hackett at St David's Hall, Cardiff - live review
Venue: St David's Hall, Cardiff
Steve Hackett hails the Night Siren in the Welsh capital
Steve Hackett leads his band through a rocking rendition of In The Skeleton Gallery, from his eclectic current album The Night Siren. The three-part harmonies between himself, bassist Nick Beggs and drummer Gary O’Toole are delicious; in one fun section Hackett swaps his Les Paul for a blues harp and indulges in a musical duel with sax player Rob Townsend, and the song’s rhythms are as captivating as they are tricksy.
