With a career stretching back to his 1973 debut The Human Menagerie, Steve Harley is one of the most respected names in British rock music.
Whether fronting the band Cockney Rebel or playing solo, he has pioneered a unique sound taking in elements of blues, folk, glam rock and pop, producing countless hits along the way. From 1975′s iconic hit single Make Me Smile (Come Up and See Me), to his celebrated cover of the George Harrison classic Here Comes The Sun, Harley has consistently delivered the hits.
His recent albums have showcased a more reflective approach, drawing attention to his accomplished guitar playing and poetic lyrics. In October, Synergy Concerts and The Arches present a night of intimate acoustic performance with Steve Harley, playing songs from the 11 classic albums he has released over a career spanning four decades. An unmissable chance to get up close and personal with one of the greatest living British songwriters.

Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
