The concert was recorded at the Hammersmith Apollo, the final evening of the tour.
Steve Hackett is accompanied by his band: Roger King (keyboards), Jonas Reingold (bass), Rob Townsend (saxophones and flutes), Craig Blundell (drums and percussion) and Nad Sylvan on vocals.
Special guests for this performance were Steve's brother, John Hackett (flute) and Amanda Lehmann (guitar and vocals).
This was a very special tour for Steve Hackett, as he reunited his favorite album of his time as a guitarist with Genesis, "Selling England By The Pound", which Steve and his band performed live for the first time in full.
The show also featured selected tracks from Steve's favorite personal album from his long solo career "Spectral Mornings", along with tracks from his latest studio album "At The Edge Of Light".
Steve comments on his site Hackettsongs"Mixing together three favorite personal albums, including the entire Selling England by the Pound, most of Spectral Mornings and At The Edge Of Light was a very special live experience. Both the audio and video of this product give a stunning experience of an unforgettable evening at Hammersmith ".
The first set of the concert includes songs from "Spectral Mornings", which celebrates its 40th anniversary, and "At The Edge Of Light". Steve and the band were joined by Amanda Lehmann on vocals and on guitar and by John Hackett on flute for The Virgin And The Gypsy and The Red Flower Of Tai Chi Blooms Everywhere.
The second part is the live recording of "Selling England by the Pound" in its entirety, plus Déja Vu, a song started on the album by Peter Gabriel, but then completed by Steve.
