From the Jam Featuring Bruce Foxton: Japan Tour 2018
The Jam’s founding member Bruce Foxton is set to return to Japan with his critically acclaimed band, From the Jam. The band is set to play two shows in Tokyo: on March 13 they’ll celebrate the 40th anniversary of The Jam’s legendary album, All Mod Cons, while on March 14 they’ll revisit their greatest hits. The shows are the first chance for The Jam fans to hear all the band’s hits, back to back, since they last toured Japan in 1982.
Formed in 1977, The Jam was one of the most influential bands on the UK music scene. The band was made up of Paul Weller, Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler, until the band disbanded in 1982 at the height of their popularity. Their work tapped into punk, rock, R&B and soul, and heavily influenced the Britpop music of the 1990s, with bands such as Blur and Oasis citing them as a key influence. In 2006, Foxton reunited with guitarist and lead vocalist Russell Hastings, and later, drummer Mike Randon, to continue to perform The Jam’s songs as From the Jam.
