This year's Sofia Rocks festival gathered a string of heavyweights from the 70s and 80s UK rock scene and went on into the wee hours Saturday.

Things lightened with Mike & the Mechanics, the pop-rock formation of Mike Rutherford of Genesis fame. The choice of line-up for the fest proved successful, since after the first couple of minutes into their set, you could see many happily dancing and clapping hands.

One of the more curious things about the band was co-lead singer Tim Howar's choice to dress in a Blind Guardian shirt, possibly to placate the heavy metal audience.

The crowd itself did not seem to need such a kind gesture per se, as it was plainly enjoying hits such as "Another Cup Of Coffee," and "The Living Years," plus Genesis classics "Follow You Follow Me" and "I Can't Dance."

The show Mike & The Mechanics is received. Modest, cheerful, clean, no effects and attractions. Just great music, great hits and class. It's great that we saw them live in Bulgaria.

Handsome British pop-rock, winning almost all of the fans said during the intermission between two hard and heavy blow halves of the stadium "Bulgarian Army".

By the way, Mike & the Mechanics is apparently still one of the most played bands on Bulgarian radio.
