Jam reunion UK tour dates

In the CityPaul Weller’s mates Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler, are regrouping for a twenty date tour later this year. It will be the first time the two former The Jam members have played together since the legendary band split back in 1982. The reunion will coincide with the thirtieth anniversary of the release of the band’s debut album ‘In The City’, which was released in April 1977, and which is due to be celebrated with a number of The Jam re-releases.

The tour will be very much aimed at The Jam fans, and will consist mainly of the band’s greatest hits. Foxton told CMU: “The traditional thing in the music business is to record your album and then tour it, but for this tour we’ve decided to perform The Jam’s greatest hits – ‘Going Underground’, ‘Down In The Tube Station At Midnight’, ‘The Eton Rifles’, ‘Strange Town’, ‘Town Called Malice’ plus some of my own songs. This tour is deliberately intimate and something of a warm-up to our own material which we’ll launch later. The plan is for us to get close to the fans, have some fun and then follow up with a larger tour in the autumn”.

Buckler adds: “I have stayed close to The Jam fans over the years. The songs mean so much to so many people. Fans have been demanding that we play live for years. Paul Weller has a fantastic solo career and is one of the UK’s most talented songwriters. Paul is always welcome to join us for the reunion, but until then, we’ve got a tour and a new album to do!”
