From The Jam Add York Date To Sound Affects 40th Anniversary UK Tour

16 Apr 2020

In addition to their headline show this July, From The Jam has announced a second date at our venue on 15 January 2021.

The band will tour the UK to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Sound Affects, the 5th studio album by The Jam, and perform the smash-hit album in its entirety, plus a selection of classic hits from The Jam’s back catalogue.

Originally released back in 1980, Sound Affects reached #2 in the UK album charts and featured two of the band's most-loved singles, 'Start!' and 'That's Entertainment'.

Led by The Jam’s original bassist, Bruce Foxton and guitarist Russell Hastings, From the Jam formed in 2007 and have performed around the world to sell-out crowds, as well as achieving a spot in the UK album charts with their 2017 album, ‘From The Jam Live!’

Joining them as special guests on the anniversary tour is ska group The Selecter, featuring the iconic ‘Queen of Ska’ Pauline Black and original member Arthur ‘Gaps’ Hendrickson.

The Selecter will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of their album, 'Too Much Pressure'. The band will perform the album in full, plus some of their biggest tracks such as 'On My Radio', 'The Whisper', 'Celebrate the Bullet', & 'Frontline'.
