Mike & The Mechanics was formed in 1985 by Mike Rutherford of Genesis as a separate project to run alongside his work with Phil Collins and Tony Banks. They released their eponymous debut album the same year featuring vocals from both Paul Carrack (ex of Ace) and Paul Young (ex of Sad Café) and had an immediate hit with Silent Running. This was followed a string of further hit singles and albums as gaps in the Genesis schedule permitted.
In 2004 the band reunited for the first time since the sad death of Paul Young in 2000 and released a new studio album Rewired.
With Paul Carrack now handling all the lead vocals they went out on the road across Europe, culminating in this outstanding performance at London's Shepherds Bush Empire.
The show features four tracks from the new album, tracks from all their other albums and a greatest hits list that includes such classics as Silent Runing, Another Cup Of Coffee, Beggar On A Beach Of Gold, Over My Shoulder, Word Of Mouth and of course The Living Years.
