Setting Sons 40th Anniversary Tour

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.'

Special guests on the Setting Sons tour are The Vapors who were the original support act on the 1979 tour. The Vapors had three chart hits Turning Japanese, News At Ten and Jimmie Jones, and released two albums before they split in 1982.

From The Jam

From the Jam features Bruce Foxton from the original Jam line up. He also spent 15 years playing bass with Stiff Little Fingers. Bruce is joined by Russell Hastings on lead vocal and guitar. From The Jam have gained a reputation for the kind of incendiary ‘live’ performances that sealed the reputation of The Jam all those years ago. Audiences can expect to hear classic The Jam hits such as Down In The Tube Station At Midnight, Going Underground, Town Called Malice and The Modern World as well as some live favourites and songs from Bruce’s solo career.

Nine Below Zero appearing at this event

One of the UK's finest Rhythm & Blues Bands, Nine Below Zero, formed in 1979 and named themselves after the famous Sonny Boy Williamson song. In 1980 they signed to A&M Records and released the seminal 'Live at the Marquee' album. By the end of that year they had moved from selling out the Marquee to selling out the Hammersmith Odeon. In 1981 their first studio album 'Don't Point Your Finger' and the band made appearances on the Old Grey Whistle Testand the South Bank show. In 1982 they appeared on 'The Young Ones' with the track 'Eleven + Eleven' before releasing arguably their finest album 'Third Degree' which features such tracks as 'Wipe Away Your Kiss' & 'You Can't Say Yes And You Can't Say No'. The album's iconic image was taken by none other than David Bailey. Nine Below Zero have shared stages over the years with Chuck Berry, The Kinks, The Who, Eric Clapton, & Squeeze.
