Squeeze 50th Anniversary Tour
Wed 9 Oct 2024
After many years of fundraising and awareness activities with Squeeze and as a solo artist, Glenn Tilbrook, recently accepted an invitation to become an Ambassador for the anti-poverty charity, the Trussell Trust. Squeeze have confirmed that they will once again be supporting the charity, which provides emergency food and support to people who cannot afford the essentials, while campaigning for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.
Right now, millions of people across the country are experiencing hunger and have no option but to turn to a food bank for support. Food banks in the Trussell Trust network gave out a record 1.5 million emergency food parcels between April and September 2023. This will be the busiest winter ever at food banks, who are already stretched to breaking point and urgently need food donations to continue to be there for people who need them right now.
We are inviting attendees on the tour to bring along food donations to the shows, where there will be collection points across the venue each night. There will also be collection buckets for any cash donations. All donations will be distributed to people in crisis across the 1,300 food bank centres in the Trussell Trust network.
You can donate food at our shows or, if you want to make a difference right now, make a donation this winter to your local food bank. Visit www.trusselltrust.org/donate-food to find out how to make a donation to your local food bank and the items they most need this winter.
Squeeze thank you in advance for your generosity and look forward to seeing you at the shows

Squeeze are a British band that came to prominence in the United Kingdom during the new wave period of the late 1970s, and continued recording successfully in the 1980s and 1990s. They are known in the UK for their hit songs "Cool for Cats", "Up the Junction", "Slap and Tickle", "Another Nail in My Heart", "Pulling Mussels (from the Shell)", "Tempted", "Labelled with Love", "Black Coffee in Bed" and "Hourglass". Though not as commercially successful in the United States, Squeeze had American chart hits with "Tempted", "Hourglass" and "853-5937". The vast majority of their material is composed of lyrics by Chris Difford and music by Glenn Tilbrook who are guitarists and vocalists in the band. The duo were hailed as "the heirs to Lennon and McCartney's throne" during their peak of popularity in the late 1970s. The group formed in Deptford, London, in 1974, and first broke up in 1982. Squeeze then reformed in 1985, and disbanded again in 1999. The band reunited for tours through the United States and United Kingdom in 2007, and this touring version of Squeeze has continued. In 2010, they issued Spot the Difference, an album of newly recorded versions of older material. The band's first album of all-new material since 1998, Cradle to the Grave, was released in October 2015.

Squeeze (formed in 1974) is arguably the finest new wave band to grace the ‘70s and ‘80s, bridging the gap between British rock and post-punk, hailing from London, England.
Originally formed in 1974 by Chris Difford who advertised for a guitarist in a local sweet shop, guitar player Glenn Tilbrook was the only respondent and subsequently joined. Keyboard player Jools Holland and drummer Paul Gunn arrived shortly afterwards and the group began playing the pub rock circuit under the monikers Captain Trundlow’s Sky Company and Skyco. The name Squeeze was later decided upon, chosen as a tribute to The Velvet Underground’s 1973 album of the same name. Bassist Harry Kakoulli was added in 1976 at the same time Gunn was replaced by former Chuck Berry drummer Gilson Lavis.
Squeeze released their debut EP “Packet of Three” in 1977 on Deptford Fun City Records, after which the group secured a record deal with A&M Records. With much of their initial output discredited by label execs, Squeeze’s debut self-titled album didn’t prove to be the best representation of their early material upon release in 1978. The group’s 1979 sophomore release “Cool for Cats” was a much more cohesive sound and spawned a pair of No. 2 singles “Cool for Cats” and “Up the Junction”. Subsequently the EP “6 Squeeze Songs Crammed into One Ten-Inch Record” was issued in late 1979, after which Kakoulli was fired from the group and replaced by John Bentley.
“Argybargy” appeared in 1980 representing a modest U.S. breakthrough, spawning the singles “Another Nail in My Heart” and “Pulling Mussels (from the Shell)”. Proficient pianist Jools Holland departed the group after the release wishing to pursue a boogie-woogie aesthetic and was replaced by the extolled Paul Carrack, formerly of Ace. Produced by Elvis Costello and Roger Bechirian, Squeeze’s fourth full-length “East Side Story” was critically acclaimed, peaking at No. 44 on the Billboard 200. The group continued to release a string of albums across the 1980s, following a short hiatus, including “Sweets from a Stranger”, “Difford & Tilbrook”, “Cosi Fan Tutti Frutti”, “Babylon and On” and “Frank”, raising Squeeze’s reputation as one of the respected live bands in the UK.
The live album “A Round & a Bout” arrived in 1990, after which, with contributions from sessions musicians Steve Nieve, Bruce Hornsby, and Matt Irving, the group issued the full-length “Play” in 1991. With little label backing the album performed poorly, and following the record drummer Lavis went to play in Jools Hollands’ big band. The record “Some Fantastic Place” was released in 1993, debuting at No. 26 in the UK, followed by “Ridiculous” in 1995, and the compilations “Piccadilly Collections” and “Excess Moderation”. Having completed their contractual obligations to A&M, Squeeze signed with independent Quixotic Records for their 1998 studio release “Domino”.
One of the television highlights of 2015 has been "Cradle To Grave", a light-hearted slab of early 70's nostalgia that has seen Danny Baker's adolescent adventures brought to the screen. Responsible for much of the show's jaunty soundtrack is one of the world's finest songwriting partnerships, Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook, who, with "Cradle To The Grave" have released the first album of new material under the Squeeze banner since 1998's "Domino".
Wednesday evening found the band at Sage Gateshead towards the tail end of a successful UK tour proving that like a fine wine, they just get better with age. While Difford and Tilbrook remain Squeeze's core, both drummer Simon Hanson and keyboardist Stephen Large are familiar faces to Squeeze fans and they have been joined by Lucy Shaw on bass and, for much of the set, Melvin Duffy on pedal steel guitar.
Opening with a high tempo trio of "Hourglass", "Is That Love" and "Another Nail In My Heart" the band were quickly into their stride, and while the usual parade of tried and trusted pop perfection was offered - "Labelled With Love", "Goodbye Girl", "Black Coffee in Bed", "Some Fantastic Place", "Tempted", "Pulling Mussels" - Squeeze were justifiably pleased to bring us plenty of new songs from "Cradle To The Grave".
Introducing, "Happy Days", Tilbrook commented how nice it was to hear a new song of theirs being played on the radio after all these years and, truth be told, both "Happy Days" and the title track are classic Squeeze songs that could hold their own on any Squeeze album regardless of era. But it was also nice to hear several other tracks from the new album such as "Everything", "Open", "Only 15" and "Nirvana" too and cover versions of Jeannie C. Reilly's "Harper Valley PTA" and Tom Waits' "I Don't Wanna Grow Up" were a pleasant surprise. Squeeze are also happy to trawl their catalogue and pull out some "deep" cuts such as "The Elephant Ride" from 1982's "Sweets From A Stranger" album, performed here solo by Tilbrook on the wurlitzer organ and "The Truth" from 1991's "Play".
Mid-set, Difford invited the audience to leave their seats and move around a little to "Slap and TIckle"' and from that point everyone remained on their feet until the final numbers - singalong versions of "Cool For Cats" and "Take Me I'm Yours" the latter of which, to the crowd's delight saw the band members swap their instruments for acoustics and wander off the side of the stage, along the front row and out through the audience to the lobby where they took some seats and held a meet and greet and signing session.
Opening for Squeeze was the punk-poet himself, Dr John Cooper Clarke. Almost certainly one of the few people whose silhouette looks exactly as it did back in 1977, JCC proved a real crowd pleaser cracking jokes and performing a number of pieces including "I Wanna Be Yours", "Beasley Street" and "Evidently Chickentown" all of which can be found on his new compilation "Anthologia" as well as newer material such as "Trouble at Mall".

I was wonderfully surprised by the quality of the show. The band has had it's up's and downs in recent time but both Glen Tilbrook and Chris Difford lead a tight band including 2 drummers, 2 keyboards, accordion, steele guitar, etc. (special mention to Simon Hanson on drums) through 23 songs across the wide spectrum of their albums from Squeeze to the most recent, The Knowledge.
They covered the hits of course but also were not shy about going deeper, it was an almost perfect setlist. You realize how prolific their writing is over time. The casual fan knows Tempted and a few others, but as they opened with Footprints (Babylon and On), perfect vibe to open with, continued staying away from biggest albums until song 4-Pulling Muscles. Other notable moments The Day I Got Home(Play), a slower matured version of King George St (Cosi Fan Tutti Fruti), perfect renditions of early hits Up The Junction and Goodbye Girl and a thumping set closure with If I Didn't Love You which the entire band were perfectly in sync and blowing the doors off the Holland Center.
Glen Tilbrook (in his 60's?) voice was outstanding, hit everything, I thought I had time-traveled back to 1982. The acoustic version of smash hit Tempted was right on the mark, bring the Hammond B-3 organ sound at the end forming a powerful conclusion to a simplified start including an audience sing-along. There was another 10-15 great songs they could have played but I can't complain with what they laid out. Some Fantastic Place the most notable song left out, There at the Top, and I held out for Striking Matches (a potentially perfect live song). I also valued hearing Loves Crashing Waves from Difford & Tilbrook solo effort (better than critics gave them credit for).
Difford and Tilbrook were the only original members. I was a giant fan of Gilson Lavis on drums with the original keyboardist Jools Holland-tremendous stage presence/entertainer but the backup band was excellent -tight, it all worked beautifully.
KT Tunstall was a strong opener. It was my first visit to the Holland Center in Omaha and it is a great concert hall, better than anything we have in Kansas City, great sightlines, acoustics, and professional staff.
Please reacquaint yourself with this band, best songwriters of a generation, the depth of their work is what most do not realize.
Squeeze Squeeze came on the seen in the earlier 80’s and it didn’t take long for the London act to gain a cult following. In a similar style to other iconic London bands such as Madness and The Jam they wonderful crafted songs telling the stories of their every day working class lives. In a happy ‘tongue in cheek’ way they sing about all the highs and lows, mischief, troubled romances and many more issues one may come across. Anyone can surely listen to the songs and smile in recognition of such experiences.
The band was made up of Difford and Tilbrook, two wonderfully talented lyricists and songwriters, not to mention an extremely underrated guitarist in Tilbrook. Then with Lavis on drums, who was considered one of the best drummers at the time and Jools Holland on Keys, they had all the tools to make them infamous! They got themselves a reputation for being a wonderful live act. With all the members full of energy and with a repertoire of chart topper such as, Pulling Mussels’ ‘Slap and Tickle’ and ‘Up The Junction’ they are a spectacle l not to be missed. A class, feel good British band! One of the best of the 80’s!
They started off with great energy and the 1st 5 songs were really well played. The set then took a bit of a nose-dive, then they got back into the swing of things with a fabulous rendition of 'Labelled with Love' - that was followed by a a whole string of hits (a couple of covers, and two newer songs which were excellent 'Cradle to the Grave' and 'Happy Days') - culminating with Cool for Cats and Take me I'm Yours for the encore.
We had a really good view of the band and they were in good spirits - overall and excellent evening out to see one of Britains best ever pop bands. Highly recommended to catch them before they decide to quite forever.
The set list is pretty much the same as the one that can be found here: http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/squeeze/2015/indigo2-london-england-33f450f1.html
Holy shit that show was better than anticipated. Might have been the youngest person in the crowd. Expected a bunch of seat-ridden geriatrics but Squeeze got them off their asses. Everyone was up by Cool for Cats. Tempted about brought down the house.
Time has killed most groups that have been around this long, for squeeze it has only made them more delectable like a fine wine. That last part I'm just guessing I'm the douche in the crowd with a PBR.
Also their opening band was Look Park. Never had heard of them but the voice was familiar. Now I know. Wish they had created a song called Stacy's Grandma.
Met Bernie Sanders brother after the show. Found it was the guitarist for Look Park. Badass.
Keep rocking folks. I'll keep listening.
Following a superb opening set by 9 Below Zero in support , enter stage right Squeeze. The band has enjoyed and rightly so considering the huge songwriting skills of Tillbrook and Difford a huge resurgence of popularity. Taking many songs from the new album The Knowledge, which were rightly well received , and surrounding with old classics was a balance that worked . Came away thinking they might not be in the first flush of youth but the energy and sheer songwriting power lifts this band into lofty heights . I just hope those there on the day were aware of what they just witnessed , genius of master craftsmen at the top of their game ! If they come to your town just go you owe to yourself you work hard ; this is entertainment !
Thoroughly enjoyed the gig. Played all my old favourites and many others as well.
For me the sound wasn't quite right, I always enjoyed their lyrics but at times the music drowned out the vocals which I think is down to the mixing gurus. I also felt they hit every song hard which worked for many but not for all off them.
My highlights were Labelled with Love (I could hear the lyrics) Slap & Tickle (which was just Glen and Chris - felt they could have done the whole gig this way and it would have been awesome) Cool for Cats and Take me I'm yours which has always been a favourite.
All in all an enjoyable night out and a must for all Squeeze fans as they played songs that they hadn't done live for years....
Pretty mixed feelings here.
-Squeeze had a lot of less well known songs for the first 2/3 of the show. And most of those pieces were frankly a bit boring and low energy IMO. [I realize bands want to play other songs than their hits from 35 years ago. But I just wasn't excited about most of the songs they selected.]
-The last 1/3 of the show they played many well known Squeeze songs and a couple of Difford & Tilbrook songs. Most of these would be songs up to "Babylon and On" album ('88). The band was very tight on all of these songs. This was much more enjoyable.
-"Black Coffee In Bed" as their final song is a fine choice. I wasn't thrilled with the jam band session the song turned in to.
Show was great. After SO many years and thousands of shows the band was very enthusiastic and seemed to be having great fun. The crowd was VERY into it, so much so that Tillford kept thanking the audience for it's enthusiasm. They played a good variety of songs and hit all the big hits. X was really good too - I didn't realize they were opening and that was a big bonus. That said, the venue itself is well organized, fairly clean, and fun. However, the acoustics, at least so the stage level, were pretty bad, very little accuracy and balance to the vocals and low to mid bass was very mushy and the treble (high guitars, etc.) were very weak. Impact of drums and stuff were good.
What can we say? Saw Squeeze for the first time at Camp Bestival in 2016 and promised ourselves we would see them again as we loved them so much and were in touching distance of them! Saw them at Symphony Hall in Birmingham on Friday 6 October and they were as amazing as we had remembered. To see and hear them at their own gig for a full two hours was wonderful. Two hours of hits and new songs and energy and Glenn and Chris! Wow! Wonderful, fantastic, amazing we would see them again and again and again. Looking forward to hearing the new album and will defo be booking tickets for their next tour. Well done boys and your lady bass player!! YOU WERE AND ARE AMAZING!!

Squeeze announce UK tour with John Cooper Clarke
British music legends Squeeze have today announced their first major UK tour in over three years for November 2022 including a date at the Brighton Centre . Squeeze will also be joined by very special guest and original ‘people’s poet’ Dr John Cooper Clarke (except London gig).
The 22-date ‘Food For Thought’ tour will see Squeeze dip into their impressive list of hits and rare gems from throughout their extensive back catalogue. Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday 18th March at 10am via www.gigsandtours.com and www.ticketmaster.co.uk and Brighton Centre concert tickets can also be purchased directly from the venue HERE .
Squeeze first formed in 1973, shortly after Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook had begun their songwriting partnership. By 1977 they had made their recording debut and enjoyed a string of hits, establishing the band as not just a passing footnote in new-wave history, but as an important and vital part of quintessential British music. Following solo careers, the Ivor Novello Award-winning duo reunited in 2007 to relaunch Squeeze and have been touring, writing and recording together ever since, returning to the UK album charts and airwaves with 2015’s ‘Cradle To The Grave’ and 2017’s ‘The Knowledge’.
Over the last few years Squeeze have been touring extensively, most recently in the USA with Daryl Hall and John Oates and with Madness on their UK Arena tour.
Joining Squeeze on their UK tour is one of Britain’s most outstanding poets – Dr John Cooper Clarke . His anarchic punk poetry has thrilled people for decades and his no nonsense approach to his work has seen his career spanning cultures, audiences, art forms and continents. Dr John Cooper Clarke will take you on an incredible journey with pieces from the new book, poems (old and new) and his usual musings, off the wall chat, riffs, gags and wicked humour.
This comes after the bard of Salford embarked on his ‘I Wanna Be Yours’ tour, based on his memoir, released by Picador. This explored his extraordinary life, filled with remarkable personalities: from Nico to Chuck Berry; Bernard Manning to Linton Kwesi Johnson; Elvis Costello to Gregory Corso; Mark E. Smith to Gil Scott Heron and Joe Strummer and on to more recent fans and collaborators like Alex Turner, Plan B and Guy Garvey.
Squeeze have also confirmed that they will once again support The Trussell Trust. The Trussell Trust provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, while also campaigning for change to end the need for food banks in the future. Squeeze aim to help to raise food, funds and awareness of the 1,200 food bank centres across the UK. Attendees on the tour are asked to bring along food donations to the shows where there will be collection points across the venue each night. Here is a link to information on the items that are requested: https://www.trusselltrust.org/get-involved/ways-to-give/donate-food/ .
This brand-new tour for Squeeze follows a summer of festival appearances across the UK and Europe. Tickets go on sale Friday 18th March at 10am via www.gigsandtours.com and www.ticketmaster.co.uk .

Squeeze are one of rock's vital institutions, a band who carved out a distinctive place in the pop firmament with their vibrantly melodic, perceptive songs. Those songs were written by Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook, the composers who have remained at the heart of Squeeze since its inception. 70s and 80s Hits such as ‘Up the Junction’, ‘Cool for Cats’, ‘Another Nail in My Heart’, ‘Hourglass’ and ‘Tempted’ led critics to label Difford and Tilbrook the "next Lennon and McCartney", an assessment that wasn't proven to be hyperbole. Squeeze in the 1990s delivered exquisitely crafted records - ‘Play’, ‘Some Fantastic Place’, ‘Ridiculous’ and ‘Domino’. Reuniting in 2007 after solo careers, the ensuing decades have found Squeeze continuing to build their formidable body of work, with the release of the vigorous comeback albums ‘Cradle to the Grave’ and ‘The Knowledge’. Squeeze have stayed on the road through the early 2020s, taking time to record the ‘Food for Thought’ charity EP in 2022 raising foods and funds for food banks. With Difford and Tilbrook joined by bassist Owen Biddle, guitarist Melvin Duffy, percussionist Steve Smith, keyboardist Stephen Large and drummer Simon Hanson - the sound and spirit of Squeeze remains vital and vibrant for its fiftieth year. [INCOMPATIBLE CHARACTER] Squeeze have confirmed that they will once again be supporting charity The Trussell Trust, which provides emergency food and support to people who cannot afford the essentials, while campaigning for change to end the need for food banks in the UK. Fans are invited on the tour to bring along food donations to the shows, where there will be collection points across the venue each night. There will also be collection buckets for any cash donations. All donations will be distributed to people in crisis across the 1,300 food bank centres in the Trussell Trust network. Visit trusselltrust.org/donate-food[INCOMPATIBLE CHARACTER]to find out how to make a donation to your local food bank and the items they most need this winter. Joining Squeeze on their 50th anniversary festivities is one of the UK’s most treasured songwriters Damon Gough aka Badly Drawn Boy, who also recently celebrated a musical milestone, 25 years of releasing music. From his still-towering, Mercury Prize winning debut The Hour Of Bewilderbeast in 2000 to the enthralling soundtrack to Nick Hornby adaptation About A Boy (from 2002); Badly Drawn Boy’s beautiful and eclectic discography spans over nine albums including Have You Fed The Fish? (also 2002) Born In The U.K. (2006) and his most recent album Banana Skin Shoes in 2020. His set will feature a career-spanning set of hits and fan favourites. Squeeze’s 27 date nationwide tour, culminating at London’s Royal Albert Hall, is only part of their 50th anniversary celebrations. Difford and Tilbrook are currently working on their first new material since The Knowledge and are deep diving into the archives for previously unreleased material. Watch this space….

2 months ago
We’re excited to announce that in 2024 as Squeeze celebrate their 50th anniversary, the band will head out on an extensive UK tour to celebrate in October and November!
Tickets will go on general sale next Friday, 1 December at 10:00AM. As usual, we will have a ticket pre-sale available for our mailing list members which will take place at 10:00AM on Wednesday, 29 November.
The great news is that if you’re our email list already, you don’t have to do anything – we will send you a special pre-sale link on Tuesday evening that you can use on Wednesday. (We mention this because on our social media profiles you’ll see us asking you to ‘sign up’ to get access to the pre-sale… but if you a already are, thank you!)
If you are not on the list, just sign up on this website no later than 5:00PM on Tuesday, 28 November to get notified.
And speaking of tours, we wanted to send a slightly belated and very warm THANK YOU to all our American fans who came out to see us this autumn with the Psychedelic Furs. We had a great time, and have uploaded four brand new live videos to our YouTube channel in case you wanted to relive a bit of the life party vibe…
