Squeeze and Fred Perry unite for exclusive 100 Club gig

Squeeze

Story by Jack Foley

SQUEEZE are to team up with another icon of British culture, Fred Perry.

One of the most influential bands of the past 40 years, Squeeze are playing an exclusive gig for Fred Perry Subculture competition winners to celebrate the end of their US and UK ‘Spot The Difference’ tour.

Taking place at London’s fabled 100 Club on December 14, the gig will be a great chance for the band and their fans to finish the year in this intimate venue that is threatened with closure.

There will also be rare DJ sets from Terry Hall and Mark Lamarr.

Tickets are only available to Fred Perry Subculture competition winners and are extremely limited.

Additionally, Squeeze and Subculture have banded together for a new daily blog that the band and crew are contributing to every day while on their current UK tour.

Posting diary entries, photos and a daily video from Simon Hanson straight to users’ desktops, the content is free to download and available through the Saturday Morning Music Club website – the same technology behind Chris Difford’s recent solo album.

The blog is another innovative way to deepen the traditional relationship between band and brand, with Squeeze commenting that the level of access now available to fans is “a little too up close and personal, the closest thing to being there!”

Fred Perry launched their Subculture nights in 2005 with an exclusive Paul Weller gig at the 100 Club. Previous Fred Perry shows have featured the likes of The Specials, Marc Almond and Mark Ronson.

Fred Perry commented: “Squeeze have had a huge influence on British music and British music songwriters. Many of our previous Subculture guests cite Squeeze as a major influence on their work.

“There is a massive anticipation for the gig – with currently the fastest ticket competition sign up that Fred Perry has seen. We are absolutely delighted to have Squeeze perform for Fred Perry fans at the 100 Club.”

Please note, the concert is only available to over 18s only!

Squeeze’s forthcoming London dates are all now sold out.
