Music legends Squeeze have announced their first major UK tour in over three years for November 2022, finishing up at the Cliffs Pavilion, Southend on November 30.

They be joined by very special guest, the original “people’s poet” Dr John Cooper Clarke.

The ‘Food For Thought’ tour will see Squeeze dip into their impressive list of hits and rare gems from their extensive back catalogue.

Tickets for the tour are on sale now from and

Bookings can also be ade at or by calling the box office on 0343 310 0330.

Squeeze formed in 1973, shortly after Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook had begun their songwriting partnership. By 1977 they had made their recording debut and enjoyed a string of hits, establishing the band as not just a passing footnote in new-wave history, but as an important and vital part of quintessential British music.

Following solo careers, the Ivor Novello Award-winning duo reunited in 2007 to relaunch Squeeze and have been touring, writing and recording together ever since.

Joining Squeeze on their tour is the legendary punk poet Dr John Cooper Clarke.

Squeeze will once again support The Trussell Trust, which provides emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, while also campaigning for change to end the need for food banks in the future. Squeeze aim to help to raise food, funds and awareness of the 1,200 food bank centres across the UK.

Attendees on the tour are asked to bring along food donations to the shows where there will be collection points across the venue each night. Here is a link to information on the items that are requested:
