Event Summary

From The Jam
plus special guests The Vapors

Thursday 17 October 2019

Pyramids Plaza, Portsmouth

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 number 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. The album has been noted as another of the Jam’s best albums along with All Mod Cons. It seems that even the obscure album tracks like Little Boy Soldies and Thick As Thieves are as popular when we play them live as the hit singles.” (Russell Hastings, From The Jam vocalist and guitarist).

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

Price: £30.25
