Steven Wilson's Live Rig 2016. On Stage In Bristol, UK

Published on Jan 29, 2016

In this episode, Daniel and Mick join progressive rock titan, Steven Wilson, on stage to check out his live rig.

This was filmed during the 2016 Hand. Cannot. Erase. Tour, with Steven kindly taking some time before the show to talk and play us through his pedalboard and rig.

Steven is a master of tone shaping and sculpting to add colour, texture and dynamics to his ambitious approach to composition and performance. We'd urge you to check out his solo records, particularly Grace For Drowning (2011), The Raven That Refused To Sing and Drive Home (2013), Hand. Cannot. Erase (2015) and also his latest 4 1/2 (2016).
And please please please go and see Steven and the band live – it's a sonic and sensory experience that you'll never forget.
