‘From the Jam’, featuring The Jam’s bass player, Bruce Foxton, and vocalist and guitarist, Russell Hastings, are coming to Swindon with their 40th-anniversary show.
The band will be performing a selection of songs from the album as well The Jam’s greatest hits such as ‘Taking Back My Love’ and ‘In the City’.
Bruce Foxton says: “I can’t believe it’s 40 years since we were first signed to Polydor. It’s a testament to the strength of the songs and of course the fans that we are able to continue touring with the intensity that we do!”
“We’re looking forward to playing some of the songs live that we originally never did get around to playing all those years ago. The band are on fire right now and really looking forward to getting our teeth into the 40th-anniversary dates!”
The Jam exploded onto the punk scene in 1977 and in 1978 released their third album ‘All Mod Cons’. The Jam became the sound of The British youth and one of the greatest and biggest selling bands in British history. In 2000, Q magazine placed ‘All Mod Cons’ at Number 50 on its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever.
‘From the Jam’ will be at Meca Swindon on Saturday, 15 April so make sure to get your tickets here.
