Visionary English musician, Steven Wilson, is set to return to Australia and New Zealand this October. Wilson was last here in 2013 for what was one of the most elaborate productions seen in a rock venue at the time, said to be a “audio-visual sensory experience simultaneously overwhelming and uplifting”.
This October, Steven Wilson brings the Hand. Cannot. Erase. tour to Australian and New Zealand audiences.
‘I collected my jaw from the ground and walked out slightly dazed. Steven Wilson does it again.’ Pure Grain Audio
“Hand. Cannot. Erase. is easily the strongest of Wilson’s solo output in terms of cohesive narrative and dynamic song structure.” PopMatters
The former Porcupine Tree leader has built a reputation as a musician’s musician with a track record venerated by fans and peers alike. As well as four solo studio albums and in excess of 20 Porcupine Tree albums, Steven has collaborated with a who’s who of forward thinking musicians, including Opeth, Robert Fripp, Yoko Ono, Anathema, Ian Anderson, Steve Hackett, Marillion, OSI and Dream Theater.

“Wilson is a star in a fiercely partisan, niche genre” Rolling Stone Magazine
But for all these achievements, it is in the live arena that Steven’s music truly comes to life. With a band of gifted and inspiring musicians behind him, an immersive visual experience filling the stage and full quadraphonic surround sound saturating the room with sound and effects, this is truly a show not to be missed. Steven Wilson will leave you spellbound with a performance you will remember forever.
‘What transpired over the next two and a half hours was a stunning musical exhibition that displayed all of Wilson’s talents, and then some.’ Guitar World
