After a sold out show in early 2020 – Squeeze is returning to The Ridgefield Playhouse for two nights in their only Connecticut tour stops!

Their first show on Wednesday, August 4, sponsored by Jill and Larry Mango, sold out quickly – but fans have a second chance to see the band on Tuesday, August 10 at 7:30pm as part of the Pepsi Rock Series Powered by Xfinity. Founding members Chris Diffored and Glenn Tillbrook have have been compared to the likes of John Lennon and Paul McCartney as songwriters and performers. Don’t miss the chance to see this legendary and eternally hipster band LIVE! Make it a great night out with dinner and a show – visit TerraSole (3 Big Shop Lane, Ridgefield) for dinner before the show and get a free glass of house wine or dessert with your entrée when you present your tickets!

Squeeze disbanded in 1999 and reunited in 2007, releasing three new albums since then (2010’s Spot the Difference, 2015’s Cradle to the Grave and 2017’s The Knowledge,) as well as various solo projects from both Chris and Glenn. Aside from Difford and Tilbrook, Squeeze now features keyboardist Stephen Lange and drummer Simon Hanson (since 2007,) percussionist/back-up singer Steve Smith (vocalist for house music group Dirty Vegas) along with pedal/lap steel guitarist Melvin Duffy (who joined them for the 2019 tour) and Owen Biddle, former bassist for The Roots. During the band’s “Squeeze Songbook 2019” tour, two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foo Fighters founder Dave Grohl joined the band at the Bourbon & Beyond Festival in Louisville in September 2019 to perform percussion on “Black Coffee in Bed.”
