PUBLISHED: 15:45 02 December 2010
MULTI-MILLION selling Mike + The Mechanics will return in 2011 with a brand new album, UK tour and a new line-up having signed a new record deal with Sony Music label Arista.
The group will appear at the Bristol Colston Hall on May 13.
Following a six-year hiatus and a massive reunion world tour with Genesis, Mike Rutherford has joined forces with one of the UK’s most successful R and B acts Andrew Roachford and Canadian born actor and singer Tim Howar for a new generation of Mike + The Mechanics.
The result is a stunning new and refreshing album entitled The Road, which will be released in April 2011.
Formed in 1984, Mike + The Mechanics was a side project that would go on to sell over 10 million records worldwide. Originally featuring vocalists Paul Carrack and Paul Young (formerly of Sad Café), the group developed a rich catalogue of hit after hit, including Silent Running, All I Need Is A Miracle, Over My Shoulder and the massive worldwide hit single The Living Years.
The Hit The Road Tour 2011 will bring all these hits and more back to life alongside the debut live performances of new tracks from ‘The Road’.
Tickets, priced £35-45, are available via www.colstonhall.org
