Gig-goers are encouraged to bring food to donate to the food bank network throughout the bands autumn UK tour
British New Wave Favourite ‘Squeeze’ will be coming to Sheffield City Hall on October 18th with the aim of raising food, funds and awareness for the Trussell Trust network of food banks.
The 27-date tour will see the South London legends play their extensive list of hits as a band, as well as rare gems from their back catalogue and solo careers.
Speaking about the tour, singer Glenn Tilbrook said: “I am over the moon to be touring with Squeeze and raising donations for the Trussell Trust. We’ve had something of a renaissance in the last few years, and look forward to this continuing.”

With two critically acclaimed albums in the past four years, and a live show that has seen them headline numerous UK festivals as well their own sold out tours across the UK, USA and Australia, “something of a renaissance” seems like an understatement. We certainly can’t wait to revisit the music of our youth - and do some good in the process!
There will be multiple food drop points and collection boxes at the venues where the audience can donate non-perishable food or money. Food donated at the venues will be collected and distributed to the local Trussell Trust food banks.
Food banks provide a minimum of three days of nutritionally balanced, non-perishable tinned and dried foods that have been donated by the local community. If possible audience members are asked to check with local food banks to see what supplies are currently needed.
