It's Happening presents Squeeze on Monday 30th December 2019
Please note, this event has been cancelled.
PRESS RELEASE Dundee’s New Year celebrations will be kicked off by one of Britain’s best loved bands, Squeeze (subject to licensing). The “national treasures”, who have had a string of UK hits including Up The Junction, Tempted and Cool For Cats, will kickstart Dundee’s two-day, city centre Hogmanay Party on Monday, December 30. The award-winning band will be performing many of their top-20 hits, written and recorded during their five decades as legends of British rock-pop music. Around 4,000 revellers will be dancing the night away to classic songs like Pulling Muscles From A Shell, Labelled With Love, Goodbye Girl, Take Me I’m Yours and Another Nail In My Heart at the open air show in Dundee City Square. Formed in 1973 by legendary songwriting duo Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook, the band will headline the first day of the event before another full, family-focused day of entertainment and music, leading up to the bells on Hogmanay. Both Glenn and Chris are delighted to be playing the city square for Dundee’s New Year Party. Glenn says: “I always love coming to Scotland. Being part of this celebration is an honour. Chris agrees: “I love playing in Dundee, it’s such a young, vibrant city. I will be wearing mittens on stage I’m sure…” Radio Tay has also been announced as the Official Partner for the Hogmanay celebrations and Content Controller John Milne says: “It is brilliant news that the Dundee Hogmanay event is returning to City Square after a two-decade absence. “It is such an exciting time for the city and it feels like the perfect time to bring the event back and ring in the bells in style. Tay FM and Tay 2 are proud to be Official Partners for Dundee Hogmanay 2019 and we look forward to supporting what we are sure will be a world-class event.” Find out more at www.dundeehogmanay.com
