Squeeze and The Psychedelic Furs have announced a 2023 tour of the U.S. this fall, commencing on Sept. 8 at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall. Tickets available here.

From the May 16 announcement: In 1978 Squeeze blasted to the forefront of the U.K. music scene during the height of the punk revolution. A three-song EP landed them a deal with A&M Records leading to the release of their debut self-titled album. With songwriting hooks and melodies that harkened back to the 60’s British Invasion, that first LP featured “Take Me I’m Yours,” followed by such favorites as “Cool for Cats,” “Up the Junction,” “Pulling Mussels From a Shell,” “Black Coffee in Bed,” and “Labeled With Love.” The band made an indelible mark on the U.S. in 1981 with the release of their classic hits, “Tempted” and “Hourglass.” Squeeze disbanded in 1999, then reunited in 2007, releasing three new albums; Spot the Difference (2010), Cradle to the Grave (2015), and The Knowledge (2017). Additionally, band leaders Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook have released various solo projects.

Squeeze’s lineup currently features keyboardist Stephen Large and drummer Simon Hanson (since 2007), percussionist/backing vocalist Steve Smith (since 2017) along with pedal/lap steel guitarist Melvin Duffy (since 2019) and Owen Biddle, former bassist for The Roots, (who joined in 2020.)

Since arriving on the post-punk landscape four decades ago, The Psychedelic Furs, led by vocalist and songwriter Richard Butler, and his bass-wielding brother, Tim, quickly developed as one of the premier bands at college and alternative radio, scoring hits with “Love My Way,” “Pretty In Pink,” “Heaven,” “The Ghost In You,” and “Heartbreak Beat.” The Furs have released eight studio albums, several compilations, a boxed set, and inspired one of the most iconic motion picture soundtracks of all time. Their latest release is Made of Rain. The Psychedelic Furs are Richard Butler (vocals), Tim Butler (bass), Mars Williams (sax), Amanda Kramer (keyboards), Rich Good (guitar) and Zachary Alford (drums).
