Support The Trussell Trust
Glenn Tilbrook will be promoting awareness and donations for The Trussell Trust, the charity that supports a network of foodbanks around the UK. At all venues on his forthcoming tour, there will be 'food drop points and collection boxes, and Glenn will also be donating all profits from his merchandise, including an exclusive four-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.”
Glenn Tilbrook has more than earned his place at pop’s top table as one of our most cherished singers, guitarists and songwriters, not to mention an in demand and endlessly endearing live performer.
But more than 40 years after he first answered an ad placed by Chris Difford to form the band that became the much-loved evergreen Squeeze, an ending is nowhere in sight.
Glenn Tilbrook has never been far from the action since Squeeze made their recording bow with the 'Packet Of Three' EP in 1977. Those humble three tracks led to such pop classics including 'Take Me I’m Yours', 'Cool For Cats' and 'Up The Junction'.
Squeeze's demise in 1998 (though not permanent) saw Glenn embark on a solo career that spawned the albums 'The Incomplete Glenn Tilbrook', 'Transatlantic Ping-Pong' and 'Pandemonium Ensues'.
Arguably though, 'Happy Ending' is Glenn’s most personal work to date - a series of evocative portraits of time, people and places, that include writing and vocal contributions from his own children Leon and Wesley, in addition to old friends Simon Hanson and Dennis Greaves.
Anyone who has witnessed Glenn live on stage can attest to the properness of his doings. 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.
