Not Only… But Also
A bit of stand up… with a bit of sit down

Chris Difford writes:

Being on tour is something I really enjoy, seeing people and being with people is part of my experience as a performer.

I will be playing songs from the Squeeze catalogue and from the solo albums I have recorded over the last twenty three years.

My story is told though stand up and some sit down, a trip back to my council estate in South London, from my very first lyrical expression to the dressing rooms of this show.

My new songs written with Boo Hewerdine tell a story of celebration, twenty five years writing lyrics and playing on stages big and small. A journey I look back on with great fondness and gratitude.

I can’t wait to climb back on stage and perform, although I have been shy in the past I now find myself feasting on the here and now deep within the shell-like of your ear.

I will be joined on stage by Melvin Duffy on his peddle steel and together we will deliver an evening of warm and I hope funny stories. Melvin’s playing is outstanding and I feel so lucky to have him as my sideman, he cries over the songs and makes them sound always amazing.

‘Not Only But Also’ is not just a look back on fifty lyrical years, it’s a journey that asks, What Happened? What happened to all those years and mates I grew up with before I formed a band.

I hope you enjoy this new show.

Rescheduled from Thursday 7 March 2024.
