Squeeze announce 21 date 'Spot The Difference' tour

tickets go on sale this Friday

news: Tuesday 23rd March 2010

South London's favourite sons will return to what they do best this winter when Squeeze take to the road for their biggest UK tour in over 10 years! The boys will invite their fans to 'Spot The Difference' at 21 dates across the country, kicking off in Bournemouth on 14th November and concluding by returning home to play three separate London venues in three days.

Squeeze became a fixture of the UK's music scene over the course of their 13-album career, before splitting in 1998. Despite tentatively reforming in 2007, Squeeze have so far refused to tread the well-worn reunion path by trading on their past glories, which have included hit singles on both sides of the Atlantic such as 'Cool For Cats', 'Tempted', 'Hourglass', and 'Up The Junction'.

Instead they have gradually been re-establishing the informal live show that made them such favourites in the first place. Co-founders and ever-presents Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook are joined on this tour by fellow Squeeze favourite John Bentley, with the line-up completed by Glenn's solo band-mates Stephen Large and Simon Hanson.

Chris and Glenn are hoping to spend this summer writing material together for a new Squeeze album next year. Their announced tour dates are as follows:

Sun 14 November O2 Academy, Bournemouth
Mon 15 November Hexagon, Reading
Tue 16 November Colston Hall, Bristol
Thu 18 November St David's Hall, Cardiff
Fri 19 November Royal Centre, Nottingham
