Vicar Street, Tuesday 15th October

Squeeze – The Squeeze Songbook 2019. The South-London legends play their extensive list of hits as well as some rare, lesser known gems from their back catalogue and solo careers when they visit Vicar St, Dublin.

With 2 critically acclaimed albums in the past three years, and a live show that has seen them headline numerous festivals in the UK (as well as sell their own sold out shows across the country), “something of a renaissance” seems like an understatement. Ever hardworking, the band bring their scintillating live performances back to adoring Irish fans once more for 2019. Treating them to not just the hits, but also rarities that span their 45-year career both as Squeeze and as solo artists. The incredible reviews of their 2017 tour speak for themselves.

Lauded as a song writing duo, Difford and Tilbrook have been compared to Lennon and McCartney since their first release in 1978 – Take Me I'm Yours – which blasted Squeeze into the forefront of the UK music scene. Following up with hits such as Cool For Cats, Up The Junction, Goodbye Girl, Pulling Mussels (From The Shell), Tempted, and so many more, Squeeze established themselves as not just a passing footnote in New Wave history, but as an important and vital part of quintessential British music. These hits also established Difford and Tilbrook as some of the most prolific writers of their time, with both amassing a wealth of melody rich ear-worms over the past four decades, both as Squeeze and also in their solo work too. The Tour will capture the works of two of the most talented songsmiths working today.
