South London legends Squeeze return to Sheffield City Hall as part of an extensive run of UK dates, following the success of their North American tour in 2016 and the incredible reception to their latest album 'Cradle To The Grave'. The band are currently working on a new album for 2017.

The band has long been a captivating live act, and this year triumphed on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury with The Guardian saying they “[went] down a storm… Squeeze’s success is a pretty infectious thing” and Acoustic magazine concluding that “they don’t have the bombastic hype of headliners Coldplay, but they have the songcraft and lyrical majesty to leave the headliners in the dust which they duly did.”

As well as a vast catalogue including hits such as ‘Cool For Cats’, ‘Up The Junction’ and ‘Tempted’, they also have 'Cradle To The Grave' to draw on, their first collection of new tracks since 1998. This album marked the triumphant reintegration of the masterful songwriting axis of Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook, in a beautifully observed series of fond vignettes about childhood, growing up and the absurdities of the ride through life we’re all on.

 

“Difford and Tilbrook deliver a rousing reminder of their talent for tuneful and touching glimpses of everyday life. ****” – Live review, The Guardian.

“A crowd on their feet sang back new songs as though they were decades-old classics. *****” – Live review, The Times.

 

Support on the tour comes from Nine Below Zero. Since their formation in 1977 the band have carved out a strong reputation as a live band, with The Crack magazine describing them as “one of the best blues bands in the country”. Their latest album '13 Shades Of Blue' features a horn section, keyboards, violin and backing vocalists which Get Ready To Rock see as “them evolving into a full blown big band who tackle the kind of soulful, funk and blues related influences that have made them an enduring and cutting edge band”.
