Video exclusive: Mike Rutherford talks Mike + The Mechanics, Genesis and more
Mike + The Mechanics celebrate 25 years since their biggest hit The Living Years with two album releases in January, followed by a UK tour in February. Band leader Mike Rutherford’s autobiography is also due on sale.
Two M+TM albums are set for release later this month: The Singles 1985-2014, the first definitive, cross-label collection of the band’s biggest hits, along with Living Years 25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition. Both albums will be released through Universal on January 20.
M+TM also head out on tour from February 12 around the UK. Go here for a full list of dates. Tickets are on sale now.
Finally, Mike Rutherford will be releasing his autobiography, also called The Living Years. The book, the first memoir by a member of Genesis, is a touching story about fathers, families, friendship – and, of course, life in one of the biggest bands in the world. The Living Years will be released on January 23 through Constable.
