Glenn Tilbrook

Music icon Glenn Tilbrook is coming to Yorkshire three times in March, as part of an upcoming UK tour.

Tilbrook has more than earned his place at pop’s top table as one of our most cherished singers, guitarists and songwriters. And he’s a much in-demand and endlessly endearing live performer. But more than 40 years after he first answered an ad placed by Chris Difford looking for like-minded sorts to form the band that became the much-loved evergreen Squeeze, an ending is nowhere in sight.

He hits the stage at Kings Hall, Ilkley on 10th March. The following night he’ll be performing at The Picturedrome, Holmfirth. And then he’ll be in York on 13th March at Crescent.

Such is the continuing work ethic of a fellow who’s never been far from the action since Squeeze made their recording bow with the Packet Of Three EP in 1977. Those humble three tracks led to such enduring pop classics as ‘Take Me I’m Yours’ and ‘Cool For Cats’. Then came ‘Up The Junction’ , ‘Another Nail In My Heart’ and ‘Tempted’.  In fact, the list could go on for a while!

“Raucous vibes”

Squeeze’s demise in 1998 (though not permanent) saw Glenn embark on a solo career. That spawned the albums The Incomplete Glenn Tilbrook in 2001, and Transatlantic Ping-Pong in 2004. Both records showcased an ever-maturing songwriting talent. Arguably, though, Happy Ending is Glenn’s most personal work to date. It’s a series of evocative portraits of time, people and places. And it also includes writing and vocal contributions by his own children Leon and Wesley.

Anyone who has witnessed Glenn on the live stage can attest to the properness of his doings, as it were. Armed with ready wit, raucous vibes and a shed load of grin-inducing great songs, there are few musicians able to connect with their audience on such an immediate and warm level. The ever burgeoning festival circuit is frequently enriched by Tilbrook the troubadour, whether he be leafing through the plentiful back catalogue of Squeeze or dashing off impromptu audience requests ranging from Jimi Hendrix to Tony Orlando & Dawn, and all points in-between.
