Two legendary singers will be performing at Whitby Pavilion as part of their UK tours next year.

Squeeze front man Glen Tilbrook will bring his solo show to The Pavilion Theatre on Friday March 16 and Paul Young’s band Los Pacaminos will visit on Saturday March 10.

It was 1973 when Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford first formed the band that would that would see them dubbed The New Lennon and McCartney.

Forty five years later they continue to tour in Squeeze, together as a duo, or as solo performers.

Glenn Tilbrook’s solo shows have continued to rise in popularity with his 2016 tour selling out all but a couple of shows.

The reasons for this are a combination of consummately professional, yet distinctly personal performances, the familiarity of those wonderful Squeeze songs – both new and old, and the occasional spontaneous interpretation of a respected song by another artist.

Los Pacaminos is fronted by one of the UK’s finest and best loved vocalists – Paul Young.

However, Paul is not the only luminary in this seven piece band. Some of the best musicians in the business have teamed up to present an incendiary mix of classics and original material.

The band members are some of the best known names in the music industry, from a variety of backgrounds.

They’ve covered all kinds of music, but the unifying factor is that they all have played in Paul Young’s bands through the 80s and 90s.

There is a change of style with Faith: The George Michael Legacy on February 3.

It features international George Michael tribute Wayne Dilks and his eight- piece band.

A musical journey of 35 years of hit records, from Wham to his solo career, the show uses video footage from the George Michael 25 live tour and is a spectacle of his songs such as Club Tropicana, I’m Your Man, Faith, Fast Love, Outside, Freedom, A Different Corner, Father Figure, and Careless Whisper.

Tickets are now on sale from Whitby Pavilion’s box office on 01947 458899.
