Considered one of the greatest, most charismatic live performers at work today, the original Cockney Rebel is coming to Lowther Pavilion with his 6-piece rock band. Barry Wickens is the ever-present violinist, and James Lascelles (piano/percussion), Paul Cuddeford (guitar), Kuma Harada (bass) and original band member, Stuart Elliott (drums) complete the line-up.
A Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel live show will be packed with hits such as Judy Teen, Mr Raffles, Here Comes The Sun, Mr Soft, the classic Sebastian, as well as the world-wide hit and UK Number One, Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me), which has been recognised by the Performing Rights Society as one of the most-played singles in British Radio history. Harley also picks an eclectic mix of tracks from his career recordings, including a selection from recent albums The Quality Of Mercy and Stranger Comes To Town.
Rod Stewart has described Harley as “One the greatest lyricists Britain has ever produced”. Mojo magazine states, “Harley creates rock songs that are proud, lyrical and full of yearning”.
The Sunday Express called him “Britain’s best-kept live secret; a consummate performer at the top of his game”, and this show will bear that out.
**VIP upgrade is available for an additional £50 – this gives you access to listening to part of the sound check and a Meet and Greet with Steve pre show. This can be booked after adding your event tickets to the basket on the Lowther website**
