Welcome to the official website of the Legendary Cockney Rejects
Must see → Cockney Rejects New DVD coming soon
Hoping that you are all good out there! It has recently come to our attention that certain sites are selling tickets for Rejects US dates this coming spring. The fact here, is that the promoters have sold tickets before the tour terms and conditions have been agreed by both parties. We informed them weeks ago that the tour would not be taking place, so we implore Rejects US supporters NOT to buy tickets. There have also been reports that Rejects tickets are on sale for gigs in Belgium and Spain, and while we love playing in those great countries we have no knowledge of any agreements to play there this year so far. So in future, friends, IF IT AIN'T ON THE WEBSITE IT AIN'T HAPPENING!! And to our great pals in the USA, sorry for the confusion and rest assured we will be coming over as soon as we can hook up with a solid promoter, hopefully this year! CHEERS ALL!
Cockney Rejects were formed in 1979 by brothers Jeff and Micky Geggus, with their brother-in-law Chris Murrell on bass and Paul Harvey on drums. Their first demo, "Flares n' Slippers", caught the attention of Small Wonder Records owner Pete Stennett, who introduced the band to Bob Sergeant. With Sergeant, they recorded their single "I Wanna Be A Star", which sold out its first pressing.
Murrell and Harvey were then replaced by Vince Riordan on bass and Andy Scott on drums, from fellow East End London band, The Tickets.

2014 is the Rejects 35th anniversary, so were gonna pull out all the stops to make sure it's a cracker.
First off, we kick off the year with gigs in Scarborough and Derby in February, followed by the one off special 'Wild Ones' gig at the BH-2 Canning Town in March.
We thought hard about this one, and decided that classic old album needed a dusting off and a proper live show to commemorate it. To that end we have some special guests and a few surprise additions for the night, so it would be great if you could make it down. And if full on 100% Rejects floats your boat, the following night we'll be doing just that!
The punkfest in Minehead is next on March 29th, and another visit to our American pals is looking good for May. The rest of the year is still taking shape, but rest assured as soon as we know what's what YOU will too.
But one thing we DO know..... Due to the success of the fantastic 'East End Babylon' UK tour last November, we've decided to do it all again this coming November!! Everything is being lined up as we speak, and full details and ticket info will be given real soon. Oh, and we're lining up a special London treat to round off our 35th anniversary with a bang...... Looking forward to seeing you all in 2014!
