Steve Hackett unveils Wolflight live video

Exclusive: See Steve Hackett performing Wolflight – taken from upcoming live package The Total Experience

Steve Hackett has premiered his performance of Wolflight from upcoming release The Total Experience Live In Liverpool exclusively with Prog.

The 2CD, 2DVD and Blu-ray package was recorded during the guitarist’s Acolyte To Wolflight With Genesis Revisited tour last year and will be released on June 24 via Century Media/Inside Out.

He previously released a video featuring his performance of The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway from the DVD.

Hackett says of the show’s setlist: “It wasn't an easy job to decide what to include, but I think there was a good balance between old and new.

“What I have always born in mind when choosing the songs is what they mean to the fans. Time has a way of turning them into an emotional calendar for people.

"These songs take on an importance and become part of their lives. So, when I do them live, authenticity is important. I am aware that what I have to do is find a connection between nostalgia and what things can sound like in a contemporary setting."
