Im November wirder mit seiner eigenen Band unterwegs sein. In elegantem Outfit wird der charismatischeSänger die Menge wie gewohnt zum Grooven und Träumen bringen. Ohne Zweifel gehörtAndrew Roachford zu den ganz grossen R’n B Sängern und Songschreibern unserer Zeit.

  • Translation for the article:

    “Roachford released the album “Where I Stand” in May, is touring with Mike & The Mechanics and will release his next studio album “Addictive”.

    The British soul singer who already had great chart success in the early 90s with “Cuddly Toy” and Only “To Be With You” has steadily proven to be an excellent song writer in his carier: Pop songs with deep roots in soul, Rythm’n’Blues and also rock made him the most successful artist of the label Columbia in England.

    In November he will be touring with his own band again. In elegant outfit the charismatic singer will make the crowds groove and dream as usual. Without doubt Andrew Roachford is one of the best R’n B singers and songwriters of our time.”

    Hope this helped!

    • Thanks Robert!

  • …also interesting for us german fans is the release of a live DVD/CD/CD+DVD on the 24th of July called “Live From Schlachthof 1991”!!! This should get a mention on this site!


    By the way: for me as a longtime Roachford AND Mechanics fan the concert at the Rhein-Main-Theater was a enjoyable experience! I happy that Mike Rutherford did the right thing in bringing in two really fine vocalists/songwriters to the band. BUT: please extend the setlist for the next round – less hits, more album tracks…and no need to fill up the programm with roachford/genesis tracks.

    I’m happy that Roachford will come to my hometown Aschaffenburg – I’ll be there! And I would love to hear at least one less known Roachford song: “Never” from 1988…I still love it!

    • Hi Steffen,

      Glad you enjoyed the show and I will pass on your setlist ideas.
