Chris Difford: It's All About Me
Double Ivor Novello Award-winning lyricist and enigma Chris Difford has brought us characters and sketches from every day life, turning the mundane into the beautiful, the urbane into the exquisite, for over 30 years.
With his partner, collaborator, friend and Squeeze co-founder Glenn Tilbrook, Chris has written some of the most enduring and best-loved songs of our time. Up The Junction, Cool For Cats and Labelled With Love, to name but a few.
Chris has 16 Squeeze albums, 3 critically acclaimed solo albums, countless top 20 hits, 32 American tours, 30 UK tours and a variety of global tours under his belt.
He is one of the country's most respected songwriters and has co-written with a host of musicians and performers that reads like a veritable whos who of the industry - Elton John, Trilok Gurtu, Marti Pellow, Lamont Dozier, Willie Mitchell, Bryan Ferry, Jools Holland and many others, as well as collaborating with songwriting partner Glenn Tilbrook to write the successful 1984 musical, Labelled with Love. One of his most recent co-writes appears on the best selling Ollie Murs album, proving Diffords classic yet contemporary touch.
For 2012, Chris is 'aided and abetted' by comedian Norman Lovett for an evening of music and humour. With Norman providing laughs in his own inimitable style, Chris tells the story of his musical life - covering everything from the 50p advert in a newsagent window that was the start of Squeeze, through to playing Madison Square Garden and beyond.
With classics from Up The Junction, Cool For Cats and Labelled With Love to recent solo hits, its a night of tall tales, big laughs and great songs!
A show not to be missed.
