STEVE HACKET AND RENAISSANCE TO JOIN FORCES THIS SUMMER! Guitar virtuoso, Steve Hackett (formerly of Genesis, founding member of "supergroup" GTR with Steve Howe and 2010 Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame inductee) and 70's progressive rock icons Renaissance will join forces to create one of the most musically stimulating packages of the Summer.
Renaissance was originally formed in 1969 by former Yardbirds Keith Relf and
Jim McCarty. By 1971, though, a series of personnel shifts had resulted in a
completely new lineup, and it's that incarnation of Renaissance that would
continue successfully through the end of the decade. The visionary approach
of their albums soon captivated American listeners, and the band experienced
considerable success as a touring act, thrilling concertgoers on such
prestigious stages as New York's Carnegie Hall and London's Royal Albert
In the 1980s, Haslam and Dunford took Renaissance into new sonic territory,
exploring a more electronic sound on the albums Camera Camera and Time Line
as well as performing with an all-acoustic version of the band. Following an
extended hiatus (during which they worked on individual musical projects,
and Haslam pursued her passion for painting), Haslam and Dunford reactivated
Renaissance for the 2001 studio effort Tuscany and the in-concert release In
the Land of the Rising Sun: Live In Japan.
Now, Renaissance begins an exciting new chapter, while honoring its beloved
body of vintage work. Haslam and Dunford promise that the new six-piece
lineup will perform the band's timeless classics with the same care with
which the material was originally crafted, while
utilizing technological advances to reproduce the music's original symphonic
textures like never before. They're also enthusiastic about introducing the
music to a new generation of listeners as well as longtime fans.
