New Wave pioneers enjoy revival with The Difford and Tilbrook Songbook tour
Squeeze have announced they will take their new tour The Difford and Tilbrook Songbook on the road in 2019. The South London legends head out to 24 cities next year to perform their extensive catalogue of hits, as well as some rare and lesser known gems. Tickets for the tour are on sale now.
The rock band rose to prominence in the late 1970s with hits like 'Cool for Cats', 'Up the Junction', 'Another Nail in My Heart' and 'Pulling Mussels From A Shell'. Following a 17-year studio hiatus, the group put out two hugely successful albums Cradle to the Grace in 2015 and The Knowledge in 2017 – proving the lads have still got it.
Commenting on next year's tour, lead singer and guitarist Glenn Tilbrook said: '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.'
Heaven 17 will support the group on the tour which starts on Thu 17 Oct at Baths Hall in Scunthorpe. The tour calls at a host of cities around the UK throughout October and November including Glasgow, Birmingham, Oxford, London, Manchester and more. The final show of the tour goes ahead on Wed 20 Nov at Regent Theatre in Ipswich.
