The Class of 77 - A Very Special Christmas Concert: From The Jam + The Blockheads + Boomtown Rats' Garry Roberts & Simon Crowe
This event has been rescheduled from November 2nd.
This event takes place at O2 Academy Bristol, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
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.
From The Jam tour dates
Formed in 1977 to promote Ian Dury's album New Boots and Panties on the first Stiff Records tour of the UK. The Blockheads are fronted by Derek 'The Draw' Hussey, who was Ian's best friend and is now the band's vocalist and wordsmith. Chaz Jankel, Norman Watt-Roy, John Turnbull and Mick Gallagher still remain from the original band and the current line-up is augmented by John Roberts on drums and a rolling line up of saxophonists including Gilad Atzmon, Terry Edwards or Dave Lewis. These legendary Brit-Funkers will be playing all the old favourites and new material.
The Blockheads tour dates
Garry Roberts and Simon Crowe, the driving force behind the Boomtown Rats sound, have put their powerful alliance together once again to re-ignite and develop the essence of their music as it should be heard, with its driving rhythms and meaty guitar riffs. Their new band, Boomtown Rats Garry Roberts and Simon Crowe , including guitarist Darren Beale and vocalist/bassist Bob Bradbury - performs all the classic hits, along with live favourites like 'Joey's On The Street Again'and 'Neon Heart'. Their music still holds its appeal and is a reminder of how this vital outfit is as relevant today as it ever was.
