SQUEEZE front man Glenn Tilbrook finds time to return to The Vic, at Menai Bridge next week – in between the legendary band’s UK and Australian tours.

As one half of the iconic songwriter team, Difford and Tilbrook, he wrote some of the most enduring pop classics of the 1980s ‘new wave’ invasion.

Their global hits included Goodbye Girl, Tempted, Pulling Mussels (From the Shell), Up The Junction, Black Coffee in Bed, to name but a few.

With recent performances at the Coachella festival in California, on BBC Radio 2 with Chris Evans, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and the release of his fifth solo album, Happy Endings, Tilbrook continues to be relevant and enduring as new generations of fans discover his music.

With Chris Difford, Tilbrook has refused to sit on his laurels and more Squeeze albums followed in 2015 (Cradle to the Grave) and 2017 (The Knowledge).

The band have commitments to an Australian tour and UK festival appearances in 2018, with Tilbrook also scheduled to embark on two solo tours – this month and in the autumn.

His solo shows have continued to rise in popularity, with his 2016 tour selling out, bar a couple of performances.

Supporting him at the Vic next Tuesday (March 20) will be singer-songwriter Charlie Austen.

Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets are £17.50, on sale from Palas Print, Caernarfon and Mudshark Records, Bangor.
