Chris Difford returns to The Fire Station for a special concert, performing songs from the Squeeze catalogue and from 23 years of his solo career.

“Being on tour is something I really enjoy – seeing people and being with people is part of my experience as a performer.

My story is told though stand up and some sit down, a trip back to my council estate in South London, from my very first lyrical expression to the dressing rooms of this show. 

My new songs written with Boo Hewerdine tell a story of celebration – 25 years writing lyrics and playing on stages big and small. A journey I look back on with great fondness and gratitude.

I can’t wait to climb back on stage and perform. Although I have been shy in the past I now find myself feasting on the here and now deep within the shell-like of your ear.

I will be joined on stage by Melvin Duffy on his peddle steel and together we will deliver an evening of warm, and I hope funny, stories. Melvin’s playing is outstanding and I feel so lucky to have him as my sideman, he cries over the songs and always makes them sound amazing. 

‘Not Only But Also’ is not just a look back on 50 lyrical years, it’s a journey that asks, ‘What Happened?’ – What happened to all those years and mates I grew up with before I formed a band? 

I hope you enjoy this new show for 2023.”
