Steve Harley, the original Cockney Rebel, is set to bring his latest tour to our doorsteps celebrating the release of his upcoming all-acoustic album, Uncovered.

Widely considered one of the most charismatic performers on stage, Steve Harley continues to play to sold-out venues across the UK and Europe. For Steve, life on the road is more than just a job: it is almost his life’s blood.

And with the February 2020 release of the all-acoustic Uncovered, he’s showing no signs of slowing down.

The Acoustic Band for 2020 will find Steve supported by long-standing violinist/guitarist Barry Wickens, and Oli Heyhurst on double bass, with Dave Delarre on lead acoustic guitar.

Steve has been playing Live shows around the world for over 45 years and the thrill of another night in another place to another audience has not dimmed at all.

“We have real adventures on tour,” he says. “I’ve seen the Northern Lights, the Midnight Sun and dozens of wonderful galleries, museums and great cities, all on my down-time. I have a great life as a Wandering Minstrel.”

Uncovered includes a re-recording of Steve’s popular song ‘Love, Compared With You’ with a newly composed third verse, plus eleven other songs he’s always wanted to perform.

The acoustic sets for 2020 will include songs from the new CD, plus a selection from the vast and eclectic Harley Songbook – including ‘Make Me Smile – all re-produced in the acoustic style.

Steve Harley plays the Palace Theatre in Newark on Sunday 23 February.
