Mike and The Mechanics have sold over 10 million records worldwide. Genesis founding member Mike Rutherford (guitar) returns with the same new generation Mike and The Mechanics.
The line-up includes one of the UK’s most prolific R&B singers, Andrew Roachford (lead and backing vocals), whose previous hits include 'Cuddly Toy' and 'Family Man'. and Canadian-born singer Tim Howar (lead and backing vocals), who toured with his band Vantramp, with 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.
Following on from their recent sold-out tour in the US, the Looking Back Over My Shoulder Tour in 2019, will include tracks from their highly acclaimed latest album Let Me Fly, and their other classic hits such as 'The Living Years', 'Silent Running', 'All I Need Is A Miracle', 'Word Of Mouth', 'Another Cup of Coffee', and the unforgettable 'Over My Shoulder'.
The Bridgewater Hall is an international concert venue in Manchester city centre, England. It cost around £42 million to build and currently hosts over 250 performances a year.
The hall is home to The Hallé orchestra, the UK's oldest extant symphony orchestra, and is the primary concert venue for the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. The building sits on a bed of 280 springs, which help reduce external noise.
The venue is named after the Third Duke of Bridgewater who commissioned the eponymous Bridgewater Canal that crosses Manchester, although the hall is situated on a specially constructed arm of the Rochdale Canal.
