FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Mike + The Mechanics Come to The Wilbur
WHAT: On Saturday, March 5th, 2015, Mike + The Mechanics are coming to The Wilbur in Boston’s historic Theatre District.
Mike + The Mechanics hit the road in 2014 to celebrate the 25th anniversary “The Living Years.” The revelry will spill into 2015—which also happens to be the band’s 30-year anniversary—as the group kicks off a North American tour in Virginia on February 26. This will mark the first North American trek the band has made since their tour supporting the initial release of Living Years in 1989. LIVING YEARS DELUXE EDITION will also make its U.S. debut on February 10 when Rhino releases an expanded version of the group’s biggest album.
Formed in 1985 by Genesis founding member Mike Rutherford, Mike + The Mechanics has recorded seven studio albums and enjoyed a series of hit songs with “Silent Running (On Dangerous Ground),” “All I Need Is A Miracle,” “Word Of Mouth,” and “Over My Shoulder.” However, the #1 smash “The Living Years” from 1989 would become the largest hit of the band’s career.
For the upcoming tour, Rutherford will lead the current incarnation of Mike + The
Mechanics, which includes vocalists Andrew Roachford and Tim Howar, keyboardist Luke
Juby, guitarist/bassist Anthony Drennan, and drummer Gary Wallis. For the shows, the band will perform all of its best-known songs, as well as a selection of Genesis favorites like “I Can’t Dance” and “Turn It On Again.” The 18-date tour will conclude on March 21 in Chicago.
The LIVING YEARS DELUXE EDITION will celebrate this musical milestone with a whole host of special extras. Along with the original studio album, the two-CD set will feature a bonus disc of live recordings from the 1989 Living Years UK tour along with the song “The Living Years 2014” which has been re-recorded with the South African Isango Choir and Andrew Roachford on lead vocals.
