Following on from their sold out UK tour earlier this year Mike & The Mechanics, who have sold over 10 million records worldwide announce ‘The Hits Tour 2015’ including a date at Sage Gateshead.
Genesis founding member Mike Rutherford joins forces with a new generation Mike + The Mechanics which includes one of the UK’s most prolific R&B singer, Andrew Roachford (whose previous hits include Cuddly Tour and Family Man) and Canadian-born singer, Tim Howar who formed and toured with his band Vantramp, with the likes of Rod Stewart and Paulo Nutini.
Tim shares vocal duties with Roachford and they both add a new soulful dimension to the band’s already established sound.
‘The Hits Tour 2015’ will include their massive 80s hit single ‘The Living Years’ which became a number one hit in the US. The single then went onto become a global success. Their other classic hits will include; ‘Silent Running’; ‘All I Need Is A Miracle’; ‘Word Of Mouth’, ‘Another Cup of Coffee’, and the unforgettable ‘Over My Shoulder’ to name a few.

After almost a decade with his enormous yet somehow tender, fragile voice fronting multi-million selling band Starsailor, James Walsh has emerged as a singer-songwriter in his own right, with the arrival of his debut solo album, ‘Turning Point’.
