Lancaster duo The Lovely Eggs reschedule York gig at The Crescent for May next year

The Lovely Eggs: The Crescent awaits…in May 2022

THE Lovely Eggs will play The Crescent, York, on May 29 next year after reorganising the gig for a second time.

The Lancaster lo-fi psychedelic punk rock band had rescheduled their York date already from February to summer 2021.

Married couple Holly Ross and David Blackwell last released an album in April 2020 when I Am Moron went straight to number one in the UK Independent Album Chart.

“The response to I Am Moron blew us away and we couldn’t wait to get on tour and play the songs live”, said Holly last year.

“We just can’t wait to play live again,” echoed David. “We’re really looking forward to playing all the songs off I am Moron. This is a way of life for us.”

The duo run a Lovely Eggs WhatsApp Lockdown group for supporters to offer support and a friendly ear to anyone struggling during the pandemic. “We’ve just got to try and get through this together” said Holly.

“We set up one What’sApp Group and it was oversubscribed, so we had to set up another. Our fans have always been there for us and it’s important at this time that we are there for them.”

Squeeze up! Glenn Tilbrook puts The Crescent in his diary for March concert

Glenn Tilbrook: Heading for The Crescent in 2022

GLENN Tilbrook will play The Crescent in York on March 13…next year.

As far away as the gig is, nevertheless tickets have gone on sale already for the solo show by the Squeeze singer, songwriter and guitarist, now 63.

More than 45 years after he first answered an ad placed by Chris Difford, looking for like-minded sorts to form the Deptford band that became the evergreen Squeeze, an ending is nowhere in sight.

Squeeze made their recording bow with the Packet Of Three EP in 1977 and a multitude of hits ensued: Take Me I’m Yours; Cool For Cats; Goodbye Girl; Up The Junction; Pulling Mussels; Another Nail In My Heart; Tempted; Labelled With Love; Black Coffee In Bed; Is That Love and Hourglass, complemented by such albums as Argybargy, East Side Story and Some Fantastic Place.

A series of solo albums have ensued, kicking off with 2001’s The Incomplete Glenn Tilbrook, followed by 2004’s Transatlantic Ping-Pong and 2009’s Pandemonium Ensues, made with his solo touring band The Fluffers. In 2014 came the mostly acoustic Happy Ending, his most personal work to date with its series of evocative portraits of time, people and places.

Presented by The Gig Cartel, tickets for Tilbrook’s show cost £20 at
