Squeeze

Story by Jack Foley

SQUEEZE have announced a new tour, The Difford And Tilbrook Songbook 2019, which will see the South-London legends play their extensive list of hits as well as some rare, lesser known gems from their back catalogue and solo careers.

The band will play a total of 25 dates in October and November, including a night at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Support comes from Heaven 17.

Glenn Tilbrook commented: “‘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!”

Chris Difford added: “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.”
