Mike & The Mechanics announce 34-date UK tour

Mike & The Mechanics have announced a 34-date UK tour which will take place in early 2019.

Mike Rutherford, Andrew Roachford and Tim Howar will kick off the run of shows at Liverpool's Philharmonic Hall on February 23 and wrap up with a performance at Salisbury’s City Hall on April 9.

A statement about the tour reads: “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

“Also included will be their massive 80s hit single The Living Years, which became a no.1 hit in the US. The single then went on to become a global success.”

Tickets will go on sale from 10am GMT tomorrow (May 18), with the exception of the Eastbourne date, which will go on sale at 10am on Monday, June 4.
