The B-52s
B-52s

As mentioned, Squeeze have some upcoming dates in April with The English Beat which include Bergen Performing Arts Center (4/23) in Englewood, NJ (tickets), Roseland Ballroom (4/28) in NYC (tickets), and they've since added another NJ show happening on 4/25 at Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank (tickets).

The English Beat, who as Bill pointed out last year, is really just Dave Wakeling plus other people, has a number of other dates leading up to the Squeeze shows. Those dates include a show at Maxwell's on April 2. Tickets are on sale now.

After the English Beat shows, Squeeze will be hooking up with the B-52s in June and July as part of the B-52s' 35th anniversary tour. Those shows include Morristown, NJ (7/10), Atlantic City, NJ (7/13), Canandaigua, NY (7/14), and Westbury, NY (7/15). All dates and venues are listed below. The B-52s also play their own show at Bergen Performing Arts Center in Englewood, NJ on 8/8.

In other new wave news, Dexys Midnight Runners (the UK version of The Beat includes a former Dexys member), who originally reunited in 2003, are set to release their first album since 1985's Don't Stand Me Down. The new album (which is being released under the name Dexys) is called One Day I'm Going To Soar. Check out the single, "Nowhere Is Home," and a recent BBC interview/feature, below. The Dexys already have shows scheduled in Europe. "The performances will be made up of the entire new album {One Day Im Going To Soar}, in sequence, followed by a few Dexys favourites."

All dates and stuff below...

Linsanity?

That's right 5 in a row. LINSANITY LIVES.

Wow. The older they get, the more Kate and Cindy look like trannies.
Speaking of old, I remember when Squeeze headlined MSG. Now they're playing Westbury.

And that photo is severely photoshopped. They just aired a live B-52s concert on WNET/PBS and those two ladies are nowhere near that thin these days. Still...more power to 'em for keeping on keeping on.

Who is in this version of Dexys? Kevin Rowland?

Posted by anonymous | March 22, 2012 12:53 PM

please don't tell me squeeze are opening for the b-52's. that can't be.

Posted by Anonymous | March 22, 2012 1:24 PM

Looks like they had to "squeeze" into those outfits. Say what you will about their appearance, but those ladies vocals still "soar." I sure hope they don't "bomb" at the Theater at Westbury.

Who in God's name is nostalgic for the B-52s?

Posted by Anonymous | March 22, 2012 1:47 PM

1:24, I doubt it. Or at least that shouldn't be the case. They were never a bigger draw than Squeeze. Even now, the B52s played at the Highline Ballroom a few months ago, which is much smaller than Roseland, which is where Squeeze is headlining.

Yeah, that doesn't make too much sense either. Good rationale, 1:53.

I would still totally do Kate

Posted by Anonymous | March 22, 2012 2:58 PM

hope you're correct 1:53p. it'll be a lot easier for me seeing squeeze in westbury than NYC.

Dexy's Midnight Runners? The one hit wonder (Come On Eileen.)

Wait a minute...Come On Eileen...hahahaha.

Come On Eileen
On that fresh face so clean
Now it's dirty
Oh come on Eileen

LOL

@D 9:20. Dude, stop posting about music if you don't about Dexy's and their history and importance beyond "Come on Eileen."
