LIVE FROM THE ARTISTS DEN

Squeeze

As teenagers on the South London Scene in the 1970s, childhood friends Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook formed Squeeze, the pioneering UK band that saw them dubbed “The New Lennon and McCartney.” Championed early on by the Velvet Underground’s John Cale, who produced their debut EP, Packet Of Three, Squeeze established their position as one of Britain’s most beloved bands with 1979’s Cool For Cats, setting off a decades-long career that would produce hits in the UK and abroad.

Bryant Park provided a picturesque setting for a secret performance by UK pop legends Squeeze on a warm summer night. The groundbreaking band played hits spanning their career, including “Is That Love,” “Pulling Mussels (From The Shell)” and “Tempted,” in celebration of their latest album, Spot the Difference, which features new recordings of Squeeze classics.
