Legendary former The Jam bassist Bruce Foxton brings From The Jam back to Manchester for a show at the O2 Ritz.
Accompanied by fellow From The Jam band members, vocalist and guitarist Russell Hastings, drummer Mike Randon, and Andy Fairclough on Hammond and piano, the band celebrate the 40th anniversary of The Jam’s 3rd studio album All Mod Cons. They will play the album in its entirety including the likes of Billy Hunt, Mr Clean and The Butterfly Collector which only featured on the US release of the album.
Over the past 11 years From The Jam have toured relentlessly playing almost 1000 headline shows in the UK alone.
In 2007 Russell Hastings was fronting ‘The Gift’ (which featured Rick Buckler) when he was joined on stage by Bruce Foxton (who was touring with Casbah Club) for a ‘one off’ performance. This performance sparked the genesis of From The Jam, and an enduring partnership between Foxton and Hastings.
Off-stage Foxton and Hastings wrote the album, Back In The Room, released in 2012. The album received critical acclaim and solidified Foxton & Hastings as an excellent and contemporary song writing duo. They then returned to the studio in 2016 to record and release Smash The Clock. The album reached number 31 in the UK charts. Smash The Clock also entered the independent album chart at number 4, whilst the vinyl edition entered the vinyl chart at number 7.
Since then they have also released The Jam Live! To celebrate 10 years since forming the group, featuring songs performed at venues across the UK.
Support comes from Nine Below Zero.
