PizzaExpress Live (Holborn)

After more than 40 years spent playing concerts around much of the world, Steve Harley continues to thrill audiences with his much-praised, unique Live performances. The Daily Express described Steve as “Britain’s best-kept Live secret”, while Rod Stewart calls him, “One of the greatest song-writers Britain has ever produced.” Indeed, to prove his point, Rod has included his own, brilliant cover of Steve’s song “A Friend For Life” on his latest album.

Harley tours in both an Acoustic Trio and full Cockney Rebel band styles, and for two nights at PizzaExpress Live, Holborn, the Acoustic Trio, featuring virtuoso musicians Barry Wickens (violin/guitar) and James Lascelles (piano/percussion) will entertain you – with hits including ‘Judy Teen’, ‘Mr Raffles’, ‘Sebastian’, ‘Mr Soft’, plus the mega-hit ‘Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me)’ thrown into the eclectic mix. Plus – a unique opportunity to take part in a Q&A Session with Steve and the musicians. Harley says, “Fans should bring their cameras and we’ll do a Selfie Session too!”

On continuing to play Live, Harley comments, “We see wonderful, memorable sights wherever we travel to play,” comments Harley. “And then there’s the thrill of Live performance, which has never faded, even after all these years”.

‘Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me)’ has been covered more than 100 times and is recognised as one of the most-played tracks in British radio history. Harley has acted on stage in a Beckett play in London’s West End, and is an Ambassador for the Mines Advisory Group, for whom he has helped raise more than £100,000 through two cycles treks through Cambodia and Death Valley.

Harley says, “I play alongside virtuoso musicians and see places that never cease to amaze me…people ask me if I ever consider retiring. From this? Why would I? Who would? To play and sing – that’s my life!”
