This evening gave themselves the honor of Mike & The Mechanics in Duisburg. In the theater at the launch event takes place Marientor for their tour of Germany. Overall, they give seven concerts in Germany. A visit for young and young at heart is worth all times.

First there was silence for Mike Rutherford and his mechanics. Died in 2000 band member Paul Young. In 2009, singer Paul Carrack decided to leave the band. The project seemed to have died. But Mike Rutherford, founder of Genesis and Mike & The Mechanics revived the band with a new appointment. He won soul singer Andrew Roachford and the lively Canadian Tim Howar for his band. Only in April, she came forward with the new album 'The Road' back.

With two new singers Mike Rutherford has achieved an interesting mix. With soul and R&B singer Andrew Roachford and the rock voice of Tim Howar given the songs a completely new and unique spirit of life. With classics like "All I Need Is a Miracle" and "The Living Years" is announced by the two new appointments would have thought when they voiced. The audience seemed very surprised, after Genesis classics were sung as "Follow You Follow Me". Then the band belted out "I can't Dance". The audience did not last long in their places. Catchy tunes such as "Looking Back (Over My Shoulder)" ripped the crowd from their seats. Really rocked the house when Tim Howar, the amount in the song "Word of Mouth" also included.

After the concert, singer Tim Howar told the editors that work with the band he would really like it wide. Especially with Mike Rutherford to work together as a music legend, makes him personally proud. He thought he could replace Paul Carrack ever since he had a fantastic voice. "With Mike & The Mechanics I grew up", he told with a smile. "My sister 17 years older than me and has given me at that time all their records". In this vinyl collection were also classics from The Rolling Stones, The Who and The Beatles. "And vinyl has a much better sound than CD", he gave us on the road.

Mike Rutherford announced after the concert rather reserved and wortkarg.Dennoch he announced, which makes it great fun for him with the two new additions Roachford and Howar to work together. were planning to Genesis colleagues Tony Banks and Phil Collins do not exist. Outside of the hall, he filled the waiting fans a few photos and signed autographs before he left.

Andrew Roachford gave himself more "groovy". With a smile he greeted the waiting fans. The editorial he revealed that he is preparing to work with Mike and Tim very much. Sharing the vocal part with Tim it does not matter. "The chemistry between us is right", he said. In German, he gave as a reference, "The hammer with Tim."
