From The Jam

‘That’s Entertainment’ Acoustic Tour 2017

Featuring Bruce Foxton & Russell Hastings

The Brindley Runcorn – 23rd May 2017

 
 
From the Jam featuring former The Jam bassist Bruce Foxton, legendary vocalist & guitarist Russell Hastings are to tour their ‘That’s Entertainment’ show in 2017. This special series of shows will see the band perform acoustic versions of a selection of songs from The Jam’s extensive back catalogue.
 
This intimate show is a rare opportunity to hear those songs in this stripped-down way. Bruce tells us “It’s a testament to a good song that they have stood the test of time and don’t need a full band and big production in order to work so well.”
 
The Jam exploded onto the punk scene in 1977 delivering their ferocious mission statement – debut single ‘In The City’ – 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 in its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever.
 
Bruce Foxton’s new album ‘Smash The Clock’, released in May 2016 was co-written with From The Jam band mate Russell Hastings and featured guest appearances from Paul Weller, Wilko Johnson and Paul Jones. The album debuted in the UK Top 40 chart and was recorded at Paul Weller’s Black Barn studios.
 
Like Bruce’s previous full length ‘Back In The Room’ (2012), the album was crowd-funded through Pledge Music, with a campaign in which fans could purchase items such as handwritten lyrics, signed CDs, LPs, artwork, etc. The band say “its success was made possible by you the public getting involved, for which we can’t thank them enough.”
 
“There may never be a Jam reunion but it’s reassuring to see someone as talented and passionate as Bruce Foxton being able to take these wonderful old songs out on the road and communicate so successfully with this Modern World” LouderThanWar
