This autumn From the Jam will tour the UK celebrating the 40th Anniversary of The Jam’s 4th studio album ‘Setting Sons’. The critically acclaimed album reached #4 in the UK and was the band’s first album to enter the US charts. Succeeding ‘All Mod Cons’, the album became a commercial success, earning them their first top ten hit single – ‘The Eton Rifles’.
“We can’t wait to perform the whole of ‘Setting Sons’ live” says vocalist and guitarist Russell Hastings. “The album has been noted as another one of The Jam’s best albums along with ‘All Mod Cons’. It seems that even the obscure album tracks like ‘Little Boy Soldiers’ and ‘Thick As Thieves’ are as popular when we play them live as the hit singles.” says Hastings.
Following 2012’s ‘In The City’ tour and 2013’s ‘All Mod Con’s’ tour, Bruce Foxton and From The Jam announce the ‘Setting Sons’ Tour
Throughout autumn 2014 selected venues around Britain will be transported back to the late seventies as From The Jam, featuring former The Jam bassist Bruce Foxton and Russell Hastings, will be performing the classic 1979 album ‘Setting Sons’ in its entirety.
THE JAM were at the forefront of the Mod revival in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, their musical style incorporated ‘60s rock elements with punk. In 1982, Paul Weller left The Jam to start Style Council, but the remaining members after pursuing various musical avenues reformed and changed the name of the band to FROM THE JAM. With the current line up including original member Bruce Foxton on bass, plus the exceptionally talented Russell Hastings (Guitar and lead vocals) and Mark Brzezicki (Drums), this Rock City Main Hall show is a must for any fan of The Jam.
