Local promoter CTTouring has announced a couple of concerts that will take fans back in time — to the 1990s, 1980s and beyond.

▪  British pop group Squeeze — best known for the 1981 hit “Tempted” — will perform Thursday, Oct. 6 at the Egyptian Theatre in Boise. Tickets will cost $35, $55 and $75 VIP and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at Ticketfly and the Record Exchange.

▪  Grunge rockers Soul Asylum and English new-wave band The Fixx will co-headline a concert Friday, July 15, at the Revolution Center in Garden City. It’s a rather interesting pairing. Soul Asylum came to prominence in the 1990s with hits such as “Runaway Train.” The Fixx is remembered for ’80s anthems such as “Saved By Zero” and “One Thing Leads to Another.”

The concert is expected to last roughly four hours, according to CTTouring. Tickets will cost $25 in advance ($55 VIP) and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at Ticketfly.
