From the Jam (C) Derek D'Souza

From the Jam will tour the UK this autumn for the 40th anniversary of The Jam’s 4th studio album Setting Sons.

A critically acclaimed album and commercial success, it reached no.4 in the UK and was The Jam’s first album to enter the US charts.

Tracks included ‘Eton Rifles’, ‘Burning Sky’, ‘Wasteland’ and ‘Smithers-Jones’.

From The Jam features bassist Bruce Foxton, Russell Hastings, drummer Mike Randon, and Andy Fairclough on Hammond organ and piano.

Since forming From the Jam in 2007, the band have performed almost 1000 headline shows in the UK.

The Setting Sons 40th anniversary tour will begin on 10th October, including two nights at Liverpool’s The Cavern Club on 4th and 5th December 2019.

Speaking ahead of the tour, Russell Hastings added that:

“We can’t wait to perform the whole of ‘Setting Sons’ live. 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.”
