South-London legends Squeeze have announced an extensive run of UK dates and will be visting Gateshead in November 2017!
This follows the success of their North American tour in 2016 and the incredible reception to their latest album Cradle To The Grave. The band are currently working on a new album for 2017.
“Difford and Tilbrook deliver a rousing reminder of their talent for tuneful and touching glimpses of everyday life” Live review, The Guardian
“A crowd on their feet sang back new songs as though they were decades-old classics.” Live review, The Times
The band has long been a captivating live act, and this year triumphed on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury with The Guardian saying they “[went] down a storm… Squeeze’s success is a pretty infectious thing” and Acoustic magazine concluding that “they don’t have the bombastic hype of headliners Coldplay, but they have the songcraft and lyrical majesty to leave the headliners in the dust which they duly did.”
As well as a vast catalogue including hits such as Cool For Cats, Up The Junction and Tempted, they also have Cradle To The Grave to draw on, their first collection of new tracks since 1998.
Support comes from cult rhythm & blues act Nine Below Zero.
7.30pm – 8pm: Nine Below Zero
8.35pm – 10.30pm: Squeeze
