From The Jam are celebrating a milestone anniversary of one of the biggest bands of the Mod era.
The band, led by The Jam's original bassist and songwriter Bruce Foxton, will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of the group's final tour, Beat Surrender, at the Great Hall in Gillingham.
When the band headed out on their farewell tour in 1982 they sold out five consecutive nights at Wembley Arena and their final single, of the same name as the tour, went straight to the top of the UK charts.
It was The Jam's fourth No. 1 single during their career, and they also had a No.1 album in the same year with The Gift.
Now the bass player, joined by new vocalist Russell Hastings, will be looking back on his time with The Jam and performing some of their best-loved hits such as Town Called Malice, Going Underground, That’s Entertainment and, of course, Beat Surrender.
From The Jam will be supported by new wave icons Buzzcocks when they arrive in the county this week.
The Bolton-based band formed in the 1970s and are regarded as one of the most influential punk bands in the UK, with a back catalogue of singles including Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn't've), Harmony in my Head and Everybody’s Happy Nowadays.
From The Jam will be at the Great Hall in Gillingham on Friday, November 4. Book tickets online here.
Tickets cost £32.50 excluding booking and delivery fees.
