With B-52's co-headlining, British pop band Squeeze will perform at the University of Utah's botanical garden. You might not recognize the name, but you know the song "Tempted," one of the best examples of frontmen Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook's finest craftsmanship. In a phone interview, Difford, 57, said the reunited band hopes to record two or three new songs before autumn, but "it's complicated ... There's no rush." The group has endured three extended hiatuses, and its latest studio album was 2010's "Spot the Difference," in which the band re-recorded some of its old songs in a slightly different arrangement. "I thought Glenn did a great job on re-creating the past," Difford said. When not with Squeeze, Difford pairs up with British comic Norman Lovett where Difford tells the story of Squeeze in 55 minutes, with Lovett cracking jokes. But don't expect much of that Monday. "The irony of it is that I don't talk onstage with Squeeze," Difford said. "When we're Squeeze, we let the music do the talking."

When • Monday, July 2, at 7 p.m.

Where • Red Butte Garden and Arboretum, 300 Wakara Way, Salt Lake City
