BRITAIN’S favourite pop-rock band, Squeeze are back with a brand new album and a UK tour including a date at St David’s Hall!
The new wave heroes return to the National Concert Hall of Wales on Tuesday 10 October 2017 – and the much sought-after tickets go on sale this Friday (9 December) at 9am.
After rave reviews for their latest album Cradle to the Grave and a storming set at Glastonbury over the summer, the band are now working on new material which will be aired on the Join the Dots tour. Plus, you can expect to hear all the classics including No.2 hits Cool for Cats and Up the Junction as well as fan favourites like Labelled with Love, Tempted, Hourglass and Black Coffee in Bed.
Since forming in 1974, Squeeze have lovingly chronicled everyday life with witty and observational lyrics accompanied by the catchiest melodies. Their winning formula has seen their music endure over the last four decades and achieve considerable UK chart success.
Leading the group are the Ivor Novello award-winning duo of Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook, who were first brought together by an ad for the band in a sweet-shop window.
Squeeze broke up in 1999 due to the breakdown in the relationship of the songwriting partnership. Thankfully, they fixed that fragile bond in 2007 much to the delight of their loyal fans.
Chris Difford said: “I’m excited to say Squeeze are planning a new album release and a UK tour for 2017.
“As I put pencil to paper to write some ideas for the next album I have to say how confident I am about our band’s future.
“I’m excited that Nine Below Zero are opening up for us as they’re a band I have a huge amount of respect for. At last something to look forward to in 2017!”
“A crowd on their feet sang back new songs as though they were decades-old classics”

Praise for Squeeze at Glastonbury 2016:
“Squeeze went down a storm… (their) success is a pretty infectious thing”
“They don’t have the bombastic hype of headliners Coldplay, but they have the song-craft and lyrical majesty to leave the headliners in the dust which they duly did.”
Under 14s must be accompanied by an adult. Joe Satriani is that rare “musician’s musician” who’s crossed over into the mainstream with music sublime and complex, appealing to a wide variety of tastes.
A true master of the six-string, Satriani worked as a guitar teacher in his early career, with a number of his students—among them Steve Vai, Kirk Hammett (Metallica), Larry LaLonde, David Bryson (Counting Crows), Charlie Hunter and more—achieving their own considerable successes.
