Squeeze with Dr John Cooper Clarke

Sage One

Squeeze, the enduring British pop act whose songs have tenderly and wittily chronicled life and love stretching across four decades, are playing an extensive UK tour in the autumn – their first as a band for three years.

As well as a vast catalogue including hits such as Cool For Cats, Up The Junction and Tempted, the show will include songs from forthcoming album From The Cradle To The Grave, which marks their first collection of new tracks since 1998.

Support on the tour will come from poet and punk godfather Dr John Cooper Clarke, the bard of Salford. John shot to fame in the 1970s for his quickfire delivery of dry, biting and hilarious satirical verse, touring with the likes of The Clash and Sex Pistols. The tousled, raven-haired creator of (I Married A) Monster From Outer Space, Evidently Chickentown _and _Beasley Street has gone on to collaborate with Arctic Monkeys and been a panellist on BBC1’s Have I Got News For You. He recently recorded a new version of 1960s hit MacArthur Park with Hugh Cornwell and Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson.
