Glenn Tilbrook

Glenn Tilbrook, one of Britain’s most cherished singer-songwriters, guitarists, and co-founder of iconic band Squeeze, brings his new tour to Ropetackle.

Following the release of his solo album ‘Happy Ending’ in 2014, Glenn embarked on a critically acclaimed acoustic tour of the UK and US with long-time collaborator Chris Difford. In 2015 Glenn and his Squeeze bandmates wrote, recorded and released their first album of new material in 18 years – ‘Cradle To The Grave’ – written for the BBC drama of the same name and inspired by the memoirs of friend Danny Baker. It was a glorious musical return and garnered rave reviews as well as a sell-out UK tour.

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. Glenn’s show is always full of surprises, whether it be Squeeze classics, brilliant solo songs, or even dashing off impromptu audience requests from Jimi Hendrix to Tony Orlando & Dawn, and all points in-between! Don’t miss his spectacular return to Ropetackle.
