Squeeze will play the Holland Performing Arts Center in September.

Squeeze is headed to Omaha.

The “Tempted,” “Up the Junction” and “Hourglass” band will play the Holland Performing Arts Center on Sept. 4.

Dubbed “The Difford And Tilbrook Songbook” tour, the show will see the band playing its hits as well as lesser-known songs and tunes from the band members’ solo careers.

Formed in London in the mid-’70s by Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook, Squeeze became a fixture of new wave music, releasing acclaimed albums such as “Cool For Cats,” “Argybargy” and “East Side Story.” The band broke up in 1982, but Difford and Tillbrook continued to perform together. They reformed the band in 1985 and have remained its core ever since.

Squeeze has been recognized as a highly influential band in the U.K., and its biggest U.S. hits include “Hourglass,” “893-5937” and “Tempted.”

Squeeze’s latest album, “The Knowledge,” was released in 2017.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday via Ticket Omaha.
