Squeeze to tempt audiences at the Rio

The two key partners of Squeeze keep reuniting, giving U.S. listeners more chances to better appreciate the British band's melodic rock.

Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook are better known for enduring hits such as "Tempted" and "Black Coffee in Bed" than their profile as a live act. The two called it quits and then patched it up more than once, and now seem to have found time to balance the band with solo careers.

They also found a common enemy in their old record label. On Aug. 3, a new album called "Spot the Difference" has them rerecording their old hits with faithful arrangements and production.

Squeeze shares the bill with the English Beat at 8 p.m. Tuesday in the Crown Theater inside the Rio, 3700 W. Flamingo Road. Tickets are $52; call 777-7777.
