Squire will be the special guest supporting all tour dates, the band released the first single of the 'Mod Revival' genre "Get Ready to Go" in 1979. Fronted by Anthony Meynell, Squire released two fantastic singles for Arista - "Walking Down The Kings Road", with the anthemic "It’s A Mod, Mod World" on the flip side, and "Face Of Youth Today". Squire went on to record five albums and ten singles, including the sunshine pop album "Get Smart" in 1983, and the ground-breaking "September Gurls" album in 1984, the title track being a cover of Big Star’s then an undiscovered classic.
