In the mid 1970's Squeeze was known as part of the "second" British Invasion of pop music artists. With chiming guitars, soaring harmonies and hook-filled songs, the emerging band drew instant comparisons to the Beatles.

This year they're bringing "The Squeeze Songbook Tour" to the Paramount Theatre on Tuesday July 21. Tickets go on sale this Friday January 24 at 10:00 a.m. at the Paramount Theatre Arts Iowa box office.

A special 12-hour KDAT Internet Presale starts Thursday at 10:00 a.m. by using the password SONGBOOK.

The Squeeze Songbook Tour will certainly feature their biggest hit "Tempted" which was released in 1981. It never became a "hit" single until years later as the pop music of the 1980's made a comeback on radio and TV and in the movies.
