Critically acclaimed guitar hero, singer-songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist, multiple Grammy-nominee and founder of legendary prog-rock band Porcupine Tree, Steven Wilson roared into The Egg in Albany with his solo band last month. And although the concert was just the second date of his U.S. tour, no early-tour jitters were evident.

Wilson and his all-star band – featuring guitarist Dave Kilminster, bassist/Chapman stickman Nick Beggs, keyboardist Adam Holzman and drummer Craig Blundell – are on the road in support of his fourth solo studio album, Hand. Cannot. Erase., released earlier this year on Kscope Records. And not surprisingly, the Albany concert was largely comprised of selections from the album. But Wilson & Co. did dig deep to bust out some earlier Wilson solo material and a couple of Porcupine Tree covers, as well.

The Egg show also featured the debut of the new Steven Wilson signature model Babicz Guitars USA acoustic guitar.
