NEW-WAVE WARRIORS SQUEEZE TO RETURN TO AUSTRALIA WITH JOHN COOPER CLARKE
VIEW ‘COOL FOR CATS’ –
South London new-wave legends Squeeze are headed for Australia in 2018 for a run of not-to-be-missed shows. With hits like ‘Cool For Cats’, ‘Tempted’ and ‘Up The Junction’, Squeeze will bring the soundtrack of the 70s and 80s into full focus with special guest punk poet Dr John Cooper Clarke.
Squeeze first formed in 1973, brought together by an ad in a sweetshop window. By 1977 they had made their recording debut and enjoyed a string of hits which lasted until 1982, the maturity of their songs outliving their initial burst of chart activity on the back of New Wave.
Over the years there have been solo careers and occasional separations, but the Ivor Novello Award-winning act have been a consistent fixture of the UK and US music scenes over four decades, with recent activity including the critically acclaimed album soundtrack to the BBC sitcom ‘Cradle to Grave’ in 2015 and a triumphant return to Glastonbury in 2016.
Their first trip downunder since re-forming a decade ago, Squeeze have never been more vibrant, relevant and on point as they couple their pop sensibilities with poignant lyrics and a live show that’s not to be missed.
OK so here are the dates for the US tour in 2017. Please don’t be disappointed if you find we are not coming to your part of the world. There will be another tour next year at some point to cover where we have not managed to fit in this year.
Below you will find Squeeze fanbase pre-sale links, click on the date you want to go to, these all go live at 10.00am ET on Wednesday 26th July.
