From The Jam + The Truth (Setting Sons Tour)
+ special guests: THE TRUTH
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 #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” 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.
The Truth were formed in 1982 by the band leader of Nine Below Zero – Dennis Greaves – and Mick Lister. Their debut single, “Confusion (Hits Us Every Time)” and “A Step in the Right Direction” were both UK Top 40 Hits!
