Great to see tour dates, no Scotland yet - any prospects before I plan another road trip? Remember the audience Steve, Glasgow is not Surrey! lol

SueRogers5: Tickets for Southend

I have also tried to book tickets for the Palace Theatre only to be told they have no details about the concert ! I contacted the booking agent who says they do know about it - they say they don't ! Very frustrating for those of us who like to get a good seat !

RachelPAtoSH: Make Me Smile

Steve says his plan is to play "Make Me Smiles" as track six in the original format, slow like he presented it to the band that morning in November 1974. Then the full-blown version at the end of the night.

sparrow: PS Thanks for coming to Coventry Steve

Had imagined that we would have to travel to Birmingham or even further for the BYOOL tour but was VERY pleased to see that Steve has included Coventry after a long absence. Makes a change for him to travel to me rather than vice-versa. If he arrives early and fancies a cuppa all he has to do is knock and he and the band will be made VERY welcome.

sparrow: Which version of MMS?

Managed to book 2 tickets this morning for the Coventry date of the tour. Front row, great seats and, once again, will be taking my 32 year old son who is also a big fan. But which version of MMS will be played? Steve did play the song as it was originally meant at a previous gig and it sounded brilliant. I know we all love the 'hit' version but which is being played on tour? Both perhaps? Whatever, we are both looking forward to yet another fabulous night with the man

Julesocool: Tickets for Southend

Really cannot understand why Palace Theatre at Southend do not have details of your concert on 5th November??? I have tried to book today but cannot! Hope they sort it out soon.

Ollie: Ms

Saw Steve on The One Show on Thursday. I was a physio student (1973 - 1976) and lived in SE London. My cousin came down from Yorkshire to a party we had in 1975 (his first trip to London) and the most memorable song played was 'Come up and see me'. The song became iconic and has always been very special to us. Even more special now as my flat was No 5 Troutbeck Road and Steve was filmed outside No 1. Happy, happy memories. We are going to get tickets when the tour dates are released. Happy days.

SueRogers5: Fairlawn Mansions

What a surprise to see Steve, James and Barry on the One Show and seeing Steve's old flat, which is also my son's old flat ( much later ) ! Unfortunately my son has since moved flat, or he might have had a chance to meet the great man ! He doesn't remember the flat ever being so tidy ! His bedroom, was Steve's old bedroom, but unfortunately the talent wasn't still lurking in the walls waiting for another host ! Can't wait for the next tour.

Monday, 09 March 2015

Julesocool: Julie

I have been to see you 6 times since the early 70's and cannot wait until your next tour when my son said he will come with me! So excited x

cockneyr3bel: cockneyr3bel

One show was brilliant,a bit disappointed Steve wasnt on the sofa,great to see Barry and James. Also watched Nations 70s no ones,why wasn't MMS on.although they did keep playing the intro all the way through.

Friday, 06 March 2015

sparrow: THE ONE SHOW

Really enjoyed the insight into Steve's past and the archive footage. Also, in these days of miming/lip synching it was great to see a true live performance. A real genius at work, as good today as he was back in the 70s when I first saw him at Fairfield Halls Croydon. Talking of which I couldn't believe that MMS was not in the top 20 songs from the 70s on ITV yesterday. Looking forward to the tour dates and the BYOOL tour. Back to The Farm live. Can't wait

BowRose20: One show

Loved the mini documentary on Mr Harley, great to see how it all started and the live performance of Make me smile was brilliant as always.

simonh: One Show

Was great to see you Steve and Barry and James perform on the One Show tonight and I really enjoyed the piece on your personal history too. This year will be 5 years since Derek, Nick and I saw you in Aschaffenburg in October 2010. Where does the time go? Anyway, I'm eagerly awaiting the publication of your gig dates so we can come and see you again this year. Cheers, Simon

gillykee: Hull

It's plain and simple! Hull City Council must allow Mr H and his band to play up to 11.55 pm (it will take 5 minutes for the applause to die down) and then we can all sing "Happy Birthday" as our encore and fitting tribute to a man who has been part of our lives (for the majority of us) for over 40 years. Come on Comeuppance am sure you can arrange it (with Steve's blessing of course) Surely Steve will not be celebrating his birthday in a Travelodge on the A1 lol, would be much better sharing a glass with a few of us in the local Holiday Inn Express.......... in my dreams or maybe I could bid for it for charity? See you all at Hull my Harley friends xx

madmoonlighter: alane

just a short note to say that i had ' a friend for life' played as the exit music at my mums funeral yesterday,as a tribute from my dad to her.the song went down well and was seen as a perfect tribute.needless to say the song takes on an added significance each time i hear it now.

jollyroger: Steves Speed fine

In The Sun today, Steve gets £1,000 fine plus costs and SIX POINTS for speeding on the M25!! OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!No wonder he's miffed. How on earth do the Kent Magistrates justify that sort of punishment?????

Stella Day: Anderson, Harley and Batt

Thanks Sparrow, I've never heard this before. Was busy having babies in the 80's (90's and noughties). It's lovely. Will post this a Youtube link on the forum.

Wednesday, 07 January 2015


Just been playing my 12 inch vinyl copy of Whatever You Believe by Anderson, Harley & Batt recorded in Battersea Park on 3/5/88. Was in aid of the ITV Telethon Trust. Not played it for a while but still sounds really great. Anyone else heard it or got a copy? Is always good to here Steve's voice on something unusual like this. Best wishes one and all for 2015

FALLAJ: Face to Face

Felt compelled to write having just listened to the live recording Face to Face twice today. (I was getting myself into the right mood for the concert at the York Barbican on Saturday night.) It is a while since I have listened to that recording and I have got to say it is fantastic. My favourite song of all time Mr. Soft (this got me into Steve Harley's music) is the best version ever of that song. I love that song in all its versions but that live performance is outstanding. The song gives all the great musicians involved the chance to show what they can do. Stuart's heavy drumming,Lindsay's contribution on the percussion, George's funky bass, and the two solo spots by Duncan and Jo shows what great musicians they are. I do not know how Duncan can move his fingers so quick. His solo on Sebastian is also a highlight of the recording. Jo has always been an excellent guitar player and played the solo on Make me smile perfectly.Steve is just a genius and sounds good on that recording. I then thought that the 15 tracks on the LP/CD would not be the full concert set. There is only one song from Timeless Flight, Red is a mean mean colour and I am sure there would have been more. Does anyone know the full track listing for that concert? I unfortunately missed that tour. Is the original recording of the concert still tucked away on a shelf somewhere with the unused recordings intact? It would be great if they could release a full version of that concert. Rock on.

MARTWEB1957: Big Big ASK..

I just posted on the forums as an intro :-) I'll be at York Barbican on the 13th Dec and wondered if it might in some way be possible to get Steve (and band) to sign my original vinyl "The Human Menagerie" album. I first saw Steve & Cockney Rebel at York University some 40 Years ago and bought said album same year :-) Thanx & Regards :-) PS, I couldn't find the York Uni gig on your tour list for 1973/74, but it did happen, supported by Be Bop Deluxe.
