Chris Difford - with special guest Boo Hewerdine - Tues 27th March 2018
As a member of one of London’s best-loved bands, Squeeze co-founder Chris Difford has made a lasting contribution to English music with hits such as ‘Cool For Cats’, ‘Up The Junction’, ‘Labelled With Love’, ‘Hourglass’ and ‘Tempted’. This special UK tour celebrated the publication of Chris's autobiography, ‘Some Fantastic Place’ with stories and songs from throughout his life.
Over the course of a 13 album career with Squeeze, it was clear from the very beginning that Chris Difford has few peers when it comes to smart, pithy lyricism. His ‘kitchen sink-drama’ style has drawn plaudits from fans on both sides of the Atlantic, while his influence is keenly felt today. The likes of Lily Allen and Mark Ronson, Kasabian, Razorlight and The Feeling have allrecognisedthe debt they owe to Squeeze’s music and to Difford’s way with words, while journalists were moved by his winning combination with Glenn Tilbrook to dub the pair ‘The New Lennon and McCartney’.
Chris was joined by special guest Boo Hewardine. Boo's enduring career has seen him perform and write successfully since the 1980s, not only in his own band The Bible, but also writing for the likes ofK.D.Lang ,Paul Young, Kris Drever and Eddi Reader - for whom he wrote 'Patience Of Angels' which garnered an Ivor Novello nomination.
