Beacon Hall

Sold Out

Six people pose in old-fashioned home, complete with vintage floral wallpaper and wooden decorations.

To celebrate their momentous 50th anniversary, British music legends Squeeze will embark on an extensive UK tour in 2024 with special guests Badly Drawn Boy.

With a half-century distinguished by some of the smartest and sweetest guitar-pop made during the rock & roll era, Squeeze will be performing an impressive list of hits and rare gems from their extensive back catalogue.

One of rock’s vital institutions, Squeeze are a band who carved out a distinctive place in the pop firmament with their vibrantly melodic, perceptive songs. Written by Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook, the composers who have remained at the heart of the band since its inception, their discography includes smash hits such as ‘Up the Junction’, ‘Cool for Cats’, ‘Another Nail in My Heart’, ‘Hourglass’ and ‘Tempted’.

The band will once again be working with The Trussell Trust, with fans invited to bring food donations along to this show in aid of those in need.
