The British are coming, the British are coming — to take over the Tower stage!Friday, September 30 at 7:30pm the Tower Theatre Foundation presents Squeeze, Britain’s new wave pop act behind hits Black Coffee in Bed, Take Me I’m Yours and Tempted. They’ve wittily chronicled life and love over the last four decades, and make their Central Oregon debut in support of their new album, Cradle to the Grave.
The performance will be a mix of songs from the new album, in addition to an array of hits from their vast catalogue. Squeeze’s current lineup includes Glenn Tilbrook (vocals/guitar), Chris Difford (vocals/guitar), Simon Hanson (drums), Stephen Large (keyboard), and Lucy Shaw (bass).
Opening for Squeeze is Look Park, Chris Collingwood’s first album and project outside of Fountains of Wayne, recorded in collaboration with legendary producer Mitchell Froom (Elvis Costello, Suzanne Vega). The two concocted a truly distinctive approach for Look Park; strange and spatial, infused with layered keyboards, atmospheric harmonies, plate reverbs, and a whole lot of Mellotron inspired by a shared love of The Moody Blues.
