Oct 19 The Jam Oct Lulu 2019 tour image

From The Jam announce “Setting Sons 40th Anniversary Tour” with support from The Vapors  Coming to City Hall, Hull 26th October 2019


From The Jam: Website // Facebook // Twitter  SeeTickets: https://www.seetickets.com/tour/from-the-jam-setting-sons-  “Blown away by this band- you must see them if you can!” -  Jeremy Vine, BBC Radio 2


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 no.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. Other tracks include Burning Sky, Wasteland and Smithers-Jones.  

“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.” says Hastings.


Support comes from The Vapors, who had their big break 40 years ago with The Jam on the original ‘Setting Sons’ tour. Hailing from Surrey, the band formed in 1979 and after establishing themselves locally as an exciting live outfit.  From The Jam is comprised of legendary former The Jam bassist Bruce Foxton, Russell Hastings, drummer Mike Randon, and Andy Fairclough on Hammond organ and piano. 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 & Hastings.


For the last 12 years they have toured relentlessly playing almost 1000 headline shows in the UK. Their ever-increasing fanbase has taken them to Australia, the USA and Japan with a reputation for the kind of incendiary live performances that sealed the legacy of The Jam all those years ago.
