An Evening with Chris Difford of Squeeze

Join Chris Difford of Squeeze on a journey through his 50 years in music, from his first lyrical expression to solo albums. Featuring warm, funny stories and outstanding pedal steel playing from Melvin Duffy.

“Being on tour is something I really enjoy, seeing people and being with people is part of my experience as a performer. I will be playing songs from the Squeeze catalogue and from the solo albums I have recorded over the last 23 years. My story is told through stand up and some sit down, a trip back to my council estate in South London, from my very first lyrical expression to the dressing rooms of this show. My new songs written with Boo Hewerdine tell a story of celebration, 25 years writing lyrics and playing on stages big and small. A journey I look back on with great
fondness and gratitude. I can’t wait to climb back on stage and perform, although I have been shy in the past I now find myself feasting on the here and now deep within the shell like of your ear.”

“I will be joined on stage by Melvin Duffy on his pedal steel and together we will deliver an evening of warm and I hope funny stories. Melvin’s playing is outstanding and I feel so lucky to have him as my sideman, he cries over the songs and makes them sound always amazing.
‘Not Only But Also’ is not just a look back on 50 lyrical years, it’s a journey that asks, what happened? What happened to all those years and mates I grew up with before I formed a band. I hope you enjoy this new show for 2023.”
