Tickets On Sale 10am, Friday 1 December

To celebrate their momentous 50th anniversary, British music legends Squeeze are undertaking a massive UK tour for 2024. With a half-century distinguished by some of the smartest and sweetest guitar-pop made during the rock & roll era, Squeeze will be performing an impressive list of hits and rare gems from their extensive back catalogue. They will be joined by special guest Badly Drawn Boy.

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.

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.

Squeeze 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.
