Squeeze announce Spot The Difference tour 2010


Story by Jack Foley

SOUTH London’s favourite sons will return to what they do best this winter when Squeeze take to the road for their biggest UK tour in over 10 years!

The boys will invite their fans to Spot The Difference at 21 dates across the country, kicking off in Bournemouth on November 14, 2010 and concluding by returning home to play three separate London venues in three days.

This set of dates will cap an exhilarating 2010 for the Squeeze boys. In March they will have the site of their first ever gig in Greenwich commemorated by a PRS for Music Heritage Award, one of only a few bands to receive this honour alongside Blur and Dire Straits, while summer will find them playing to their fans in the USA.

Away from the band, both Chris and Glenn were involved in the Barbican’s inaugural Songs In The Key of London in March, an event curated by Chris that brought together the likes of Elvis Costello, Suggs, Jools Holland, Phil Daniels and many more.

Both continue to gig separately as well, with Glenn having released his third solo album Pandemonium Ensues last year, while Chris has also been busy recording his new album Cashmere If You Can, which will see a release through the innovative new Saturday Morning Music Club label.

Chris and Glenn are hoping to spend this summer writing material together for a new Squeeze album next year.
