Steve Hackett has premiered footage of his performance of ‘El Niño’ from ‘Wuthering Nights: Live in Birmingham’ exclusively on Planet Rock.

One of the standout tracks from the former Genesis guitarist’s 2017 album ‘The Night Siren’, Steve played ‘El Niño’ two songs into his set at Birmingham Symphony Hall on the Genesis Revisited & Classic Hackett tour in May 2017.

Watch Steve performing ‘El Niño’ here:


‘Wuthering Nights: Live in Birmingham’ is released on Special Edition 2DVD + 2CD Digipak, Blu-Ray, Digital album and Blu-Ray in stereo & surround sound formats via Inside Out Music on Friday 26th January 2018.

Marking the 40th anniversary of the Genesis album ‘Wind & Wuthering’, Steve’s last record with the band, the set list boasted five tracks from the album: ‘Eleventh Earl of Mar’, ‘One For The Vine’, ‘Blood On The Rooftop’, ‘...In That Quiet Earth’ and ‘Afterglow’.

Elsewhere, other Genesis songs were revisited including ‘Dance on a Volcano’, ‘Inside & Out’, ‘Firth Of Fifth’, ‘The Musical Box’ and ‘Los Endos alongside songs from Steve’s own distinguished back catalogue and material from his latest studio album ‘The Night Siren’.

“I'm excited about imminent release of 'Wuthering Nights'. It felt special to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Wind & Wuthering, the Genesis album I had the most songwriting involvement with and a favourite among many fans,” says Steve.

“Songs like One for the Vine, Eleventh Earl of Mar and Blood on the Rooftops come across powerfully on this release, which also features other Genesis and solo Hackett favourites along with songs from my latest album The Night Siren... Sit back and enjoy!”

Steve’s band on the tour consisted of Roger King (keyboards), Gary O’Toole (drums/percussion), Rob Townsend (saxes/flutes), Nick Beggs (bass, stick & twelve string) and Nad Sylvan on vocals plus special guests John Hackett and Amanda Lehmann.
