Announces mix of Cockney Rebel
and Acoustic shows in December

Steve Harley, the original Cockney Rebel, returns for a mixture of full band Cockney Rebel shows, and also a selection of new dates for his acclaimed 3-man acoustic set-up. Both configurations will offer potent evening of truly special musicianship and song-craft, with Harley bringing new light to bear on his work through the prism of differing approaches. The sets for both formats will be drawn from throughout his amazingly successful career, which has seen him release thirteen albums, the last being the acclaimed 'Stranger Comes To Town'.

Steve Harley is one of the UK's most respected songwriters and performers. Whilst his calling card is the million-selling number one single 'Make Me Smile [Come Up And See Me]', he also had hits with 'Mr. Raffles [Man, It Was Mean]', 'Judy Teen', 'Mr. Soft' and many more. Harley even scored a hit with an enormously successful cover of The Beatles' 'Here Comes The Sun' but is rightly revered for his own compositions.
