A Flower?... from BCFC Tim, 04/11/14
Absoulutely stunning. I have seen Steve many times since first watching Genesis in 1974 and this was an immensely powerful show, with an outstanding group of musicians. Nad Sylvan sounded unnervingly like Peter Gabriel throughout. Fountain of Salmacis and The Musical Box exemplified this with the latter bringing the huge audience to their feet. The whole show was a high spot and rolled back the years, but with more power than originally. The Knife was as brilliant as it was unexpected and even predated Steves time with the band. His wonderful guitar solo on Firth of Fifth has never sounded better but best of all was the flawless Suppers Ready, still majestic after all this time. To those who think this was just a trip back to yesteryear, wrong. It was a showcase of stunningly good rock music that had the hall in raptures and endures undimmed. I am now off to California to see it all over again in December. Thanks to Steve and his superb band!

Fabulous band from Jockabroad, 04/11/14
Thoroughly enjoyable evening. Plenty staff at the bar and plenty security staff on duty. The venue was warn and clean and the seats more comfortable than most West End theatres. Support band The Von Trapp family were good but were only on stage for 30 min. Pink Martini were simply fantastic. China Forbes ( lead vocalist) has a world class voice that just gets better and better, and a support band that are all individually brilliant and together even better. Go see!

Superb as always from GR10, 03/11/14
Great band, great lights, great sound and a terrific set of many old Genesis favourites. Ive seen Steve lots of times and this performance scores 10. Just like the rest. Havent been to the Apollo in a very long time, but its charm remains, just like the Genesis back catalogue that Steve still loves playing.

B.R.I.L.L.I.A.N.T from Geoff Dominy, 03/11/14
An absolutely brilliant performance in a wonderful venue. Magical renditions of classic early Genesis by arguably one of the best guitarists in the world. So happy to see Steve still flying the Genesis flag although lets not forget the brilliant work he has done since leaving Genesis. A virtuoso performance by Steve and the rest of the band. Cheers

Great music with charm and wit from Nerolia, 03/11/14
What a blast! First Pink Martini performance for me but will not be the last. Wonderful energy and superb musicianship; I could have danced all night to the music.

Fantastic Event from Happy, 03/11/14
Im a great fan of Pink Martini, they certainly were just as terrific this time as they have always been in the past and I look forward to their next concert. The Von Traps were also most enjoyable and entertaining, they were the perfect act to prepare us for Pink Martini.

Great Show from Mr Grumpy, 03/11/14
If you like the older Genesis prog rock music this show is for you. Great versions of the old songs well performed by Steve and the band. A truly memorable experience for those who were too young to see them perform this stuff in the 70s or for those who just want to hear it again and again. Great stuff Steve I hope you continue to perform this era of music and keep it alive.

Musical Box Do It Better from wingcommander, 03/11/14
I am a huge fan of Steve Hacketts solo work. Unfortunately the concert on Saturday was below par, you could hardly hear his playing at times and some of the songs leant more to the keyboard player rather than the guitarist. Its time to close the museum Steve and let reimaginers like Musical Box keep the dream going. I got a little bored half way through and I was sober, I just thought the playlist was unimaginative. It does not detract from the genius that is Steve Hackett, its just time to let it go.

Great concert from Bren, 03/11/14
Travelled from Ireland for this show.Brilliant to hear the old stuff played in its original form. Sound mix was a bit off - bass too heavy and couldnt always hear Steves guitar. Not like in the Royal Albert Hall last year where the sound was impeccable.

Fantastic Show! from billy bob, visitor from Texas, 03/11/14
A must-see event for any fan of Genesis from the Classic era. Great mix of material with Suppers Ready bringing down the house.

Memorable Performance from Anousheh, 03/11/14
even though almost all the performance by Mastero Shajarian was new, at least to me, I found the whole performance overall great, memorable, and delightful. Great choice of poems. The Acoustic at the venue however was NOT at all fit for such instrumental performance, the lights at the very back was on, making it difficult to ficus on the stage, and not much strict control of audience preventing them form walking constantly on the stairs making noise.

Fantastic evening from Mandy H, 29/10/14
My husband and I took my daughter who is a great fan of Hans Zimmer s music for her 18th Birthday. She plays the Clarinet and has performed Pirates of the Caribbean, Gladiator and Madagascar along with some other great film scores. She and us had a great time. The musician were amazing. Hans was exceptional. We look forward to going to another concert if Hans comes to London again.

unforgettable event from Meike, 23/10/14
We came specially to this event from a small town in Germany, because my daughter had been a fan of the band for a long time, already. And as the date of the concert was during our Autumn holidays we were able to go. It was nerveracking booking the tickets: first there were 2 seats in the second row near the stage - but as I pressed the button, they had already gone! But in the end we were lucky to get seats in the first and second row in a circle block and had a good view of the stage! All in all it was a great experience! We enjoyed the concert, the venue and were even estonished by the relaxed, funny, helpful and well organized security! Thanks a lot to everyone!!! And last but not least: I think we were very lucky to have seen the band in this location rather than in one of the arenas on their next tour!

I had a fantastic time! from Becky, 22/10/14
I admit that I wasnt expecting much but boy was I wrong! Tristans drum solo and the accompanying music and lighting actually blew my way and it was absolutely unforgettable. Their interaction with the audience was second to none and the atmosphere was electric. The staff on the doors were lovely and wonderfully friendly faces. Congratulations all around :)
