Details

With 2 critically acclaimed albums in the past three years, and a live show that has seen them headline numerous festivals in the UK (as well as sell their own sold out shows across the country), “something of a renaissance” seems like an understatement. Ever hardworking, the band will be bringing their scintillating live performances to adoring UK fans again in 2019, treating them to not just the hits, but also rarities that span their 45 year career both as Squeeze and solo artists. The incredible reviews of their 2017 tour speak for themselves. 

I am over the moon to be announcing the 2019 tour with Squeeze. We’ve had something of a renaissance in the last few years, and look forward to this continuing, as we will play a set of songs that are both new, contemporary and as innovative as people have come to expect from us, along with the old beauties. I’m also excited to have Heaven 17 with us, what an extraordinary time we will have!

Glenn Tilbrook

Lauded as a song writing duo, Difford and Tilbrook have been compared to Lennon and McCartney since their first release in 1978 – ‘Take Me I’m Yours’ – which blasted Squeeze into the forefront of the UK music scene. Following up with hits such as ‘Cool For Cats’, ‘Up The Junction’, ‘Goodbye Girl’, “Pulling Mussels From The Shell”, “Tempted”, and so many more, Squeeze established themselves as not just a passing footnote in New Wave history, but as an important and vital part of quintessential British music. These hits also established Difford and Tilbrook as some of the most prolific writers of their time, with both amassing a wealth of melody rich earworms over the past four decades, both as Squeeze and also in their solo work too. ‘The Difford and Tilbrook Songbook 2019’ is a tour that will capture the works of two of the most talented songsmiths working today. 

I feel excited about the tour. It’s a great band full of dedicated, hardworking, passionate people and we have a fabulous catalogue of songs to dip in and out of, so I feel completely blessed. I can’t wait to strap on the electric guitar again and sing the songs that got me where I am today.

Now is the time to use ‘national’ and ‘treasure’ and now is the time to see Squeeze live
