Birmingham date for seventies legend.
Steve Harley celebrates his 48th year in music in 2021 and continues to play concerts around the world, including a date at Birmingham Town Hall on . He says that playing Live is more than a job, it’s almost his life’s blood.
Considered one of the most charismatic Live performers at work today, the original Cockney Rebel tours with a full six-piece rock line-up and also fronts the Steve Harley Acoustic Band.
Music is very much still his first love. “We see the world and play to great audiences; how good is that! I see great cities and their galleries and museums in our down-time, beautiful landscapes from the Arctic Circle to the Mediterranean coast, all in my life as a touring musician. It’s still the greatest job on earth!” Harley said recently.
The live shows include the big hit singles, like Judy Teen, Mr Soft, Love’s A Prima Donna, the legendary Sebastian, as well as the evergreen Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me), noted by the PRS as one of the most-played songs in history on British Rrdio.
Steve was awarded a Gold Badge of Merit by the British Academy of Songwriters, and a Lifetime Achievement Award for Acoustic Music by the British Festival of Acoustic Music in 2018.
Rod Stewart, who has covered Steve’s song A Friend For Life, describes him as “One of the greatest lyricists Britain has produced.”
Tickets for the Town Hall show on 21st October are available here.
