Squeeze announce “The Difford And Tilbrook Songbook 2019” USA Tour

Tickets now on sale!

Squeeze have announced the American leg of “The Difford And Tilbrook Songbook 2019” tour that will see the UK legends play their extensive list of hits as well as rare, lesser-known gems from their back catalog and solo careers. The group is coming to the Holland Performing Arts Center Wednesday, September 4, 2019. Tickets, starting at $65, are now on sale at TicketOmaha.com, in person at the Ticket Omaha Box Office or by phone at (402) 345-0606. 

“I am over the moon to be announcing the 2019 tour with Squeeze,” says lead vocalist and guitarist Glenn Tilbrook. “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.”

With a previous show at Coachella, forthcoming appearances at the KAABOO Del Mar and Bourbon and Beyond festivals, two critically-acclaimed albums in the last three years, numerous headlining appearances at festivals and sold-out solo shows, “something of a renaissance” seems like an understatement. The band will bring their scintillating live performances to the USA with a mix of not only the hits, but also rarities that span their 45-year career both as Squeeze and solo artists.

“I feel excited about the tour,” adds guitarist Chris Difford. “It’s a great band full of dedicated, hardworking, passionate people and we have a fabulous catalog of songs to dip in and out of, so I feel completely blessed.  I can’t wait to strap on the electric guitar again and sing the songs that got me where I am today.”

Difford and Tilbrook have been compared to Lennon and McCartney since “Take Me I’m Yours”, their first release in 1978, blasted the band into the forefront of the UK music scene. Following hits including “Tempted”, “Black Coffee in Bed”, “Hourglass”, “Cool For Cats”, “Up The Junction” and “Pulling Mussels From The Shell”, Squeeze established themselves as a vital part of the quintessential rock scene. These hits also established Difford and Tilbrook as two of the most prolific songwriters of their time with each amassing a wealth of melody-rich earworms over the past four decades as both Squeeze and solo artists. “The Difford and Tilbrook Songbook 2019” tour will capture the works of two of the most talented songsmiths working today.
