Cancelled: Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel

50 Years a Rebel

This event has passed.

We are sorry to announce the cancellation of this event; our Box Office is in touch directly with ticketholders.

Steve Harley is disappointed to cancel this event, but is to undertake a medical procedure followed by a period of recuperation.

A message from Steve: “It saddens me deeply to have to cancel shows, and I feel really sorry for all ticket-holders. But, let’s be clear, I aim to be back on-the-road, ready for the spotlight, for our January dates. That’s my goal.”

Rod Stewart calls Steve Harley, “One of the finest lyricists Britain has produced,” and he is also one of the hardest working.  To show it, he is taking his band Cockney Rebel out on the road again to mark ’50 Years A Rebel’.

In his own words: “Just over Fifty years ago, in early 1972,  I progressed from London Busker, regaling the tourists with an acoustic version of Sebastian and other Human Menagerie tracks, to Cockney Rebel popster, determined to forge a unique furrow, full of the self-confidence of young manhood. The original Cockney Rebel was formed out of Beckenham Arts Lab and my drummer, Stuart Elliott’s bedroom in Pimlico. Bit by bit, the band was formed. We played our first gig as support to the Jeff Beck Group at the Roundhouse, London. Since then, I haven’t really been off-the-road in five amazing decades. Sebastian took on a whole new life when an orchestra and choir were added for our first album, and Judy Teen in early 1974 turned us into bona fide, Top Of The Pops pop stars. Still a wandering minstrel, I wouldn’t have it any other way. The shows in December last year were a joy and I cannot wait to get out there and celebrate once more”.

These very special shows will include songs from the vast and eclectic Harley Songbook. Mr Soft, Judy Teen, Sebastian and the legendary Make Me Smile and more from an incredible career.
