PRESS RELEASE

STEVE HARLEY
2013 UK tour; plus live 2CD / DVD

Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel announce a 13 date UK tour in November 2013. Tickets are on sale now. The set will be drawn from throughout his amazingly successful career, which has seen him release thirteen albums so far. Steve and the band will be performing two sets at each show, each of more than an hour, separated by a brief interval. Additionally, Steve Harley is delighted to announce the release of a live DVD and 2CD album recorded at his special one-off show on 24 November 2012, that featured a nine-piece band, a symphony orchestra and choir. The "Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel, Birmingham 2013 - Live" DVD and double album will be available from 14 October 2013, via Absolute. Acclaimed by The Times as an "Exhilarating journey of a lifetime," the Symphony Hall show featured a barn-storming performance of "The Human Menagerie" and "The Psychomodo" albums in their entirety, in sequence, back to back.

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.

Steve Harley's live prowess and reputation is such that, MOJO said simply, "Harley creates rock songs that are proud, lyrical and full of yearning." Don't miss out on this November tour that promises an evening of truly special musicianship and songcraft; Steve Harley is, as a recent reviewer said, "A consummate performer at ease with one of modern music's very best back catalogues."
