Steve Harley: Come Up And See Me… And Other Stories

30th May 2024

A prodigious kid who grew up on the poetry of Eliot and Lawrence, the prose of Steinbeck, Woolf, and Hemingway, and the music of Bob Dylan, Steve Harley soon realised his life would be preoccupied with words and music.

He met The Rolling Stones as a kid, and the die was cast. After working as a newspaper reporter, he switched to rock ‘n’ roll, enjoying huge success with Cockney Rebel and such hits as Sebastian and the iconic Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me). Acting off-Broadway and in London, he recorded the title track of The Phantom Of The Opera with Sarah Brightman, also finding time to write for Rod Stewart, among others, before playing Glastonbury Festival three times, the Isle of Wight festival and receiving numerous awards. And now, it’s time to reflect.

Come Up And See Me… And Other Stories will feature music and stories, as Steve tells tales of his career while playing acoustic versions of his biggest hits. Steve will be accompanied by long-standing band member Barry Wickens.
