Mike + The Mechanics will be bringing their ‘Looking Back - Living The Years 2025 Tour’ to South Africa in 2025. Another Big Concerts Experience, in association with KFM 94.5 and Powered by Hot 102.7 FM.


Following the tremendous success of the 'Refuelled! Tour' in 2023, the band is hitting the road once again. The tour kicks off at the Grand Arena, GrandWest, Cape Town on Thursday, 30th January 2025, then heads to the SunBet Arena, Time Square, Pretoria on Saturday 1st of February 2025, followed by 30 concerts in the United Kingdom. The tour will see them play their unforgettable hits including ‘Over My Shoulder’, ‘The Living Years’ and ‘All I Need Is A Miracle’ as well as drift into some of Genesis’s much-loved classic tracks.


Mike Rutherford says “It’s exciting to announce that we will be touring The Mechanics again. Getting back on the road with the guys last year was a real pleasure. Even though it had been four years, we slotted back into the old ways, the old jokes and the camaraderie like it had been a day! We had so much fun on the last tour and the audiences were so gracious and warm, when we played the final show in Dusseldorf we all agreed then that we wanted to do it all again. We can’t wait to see you.”


Originally formed in 1985 by Mike Rutherford “as a side project to Genesis”, Mike + The Mechanics originally featured Paul Young and Paul Carrack as frontmen, and together, they achieved huge commercial success throughout the 80s and 90s achieving number ones all over the world and going on to sell over 10 million albums. After Paul Young’s sudden death in 2000 the band released one further album before deciding to call it a day. In 2011, Mike started writing songs again and invited Roachford and Howar to join him and their chemistry was instant. They released ‘The Road’ album and the band began touring again with huge success, and have remained together since.
