Glenn Tilbrook + support from Dandelion Charm
Wednesday 17th October 2018 - Starts 8pm
TICKET PRICE: £24/21
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.
£24 seated, £21 standing.
Glenn Tilbrook has announced that his upcoming solo tour dates, starting on 17th October at Ropetackle in Shoreham, will be promoting awareness and donations for The Trussell Trust, the charity that supports a network of food banks around the UK. At all venues there will be ‘food drop points and collection boxes, and Glenn will also be donating all profits from his merchandise, including an exclusive 4-track EP, to the organisation.
Glenn says “It is shameful that in the 21st century there are people that can’t afford to put food on the table.. Anyone, from any walk of life, can fall upon dire times, and I hope that by doing this tour it will remind people that there is a very real need. Most of us can do something to help – be it giving some food or a little money – and I hope people coming to the shows are inspired to donate.”
Food donated at the venue will be collected and distributed to the nearest Trussell Trust food bank.
