Founding member of The Jam, Bruce Foxton and From The Jam, are to mark the 35th anniversary of 'All Mod Cons' with a huge UK tour, taking in venues, great and small, around the UK.

From The Jam will be performing 'All Mod Cons' in its entirety followed by a selection of hits and album tracks from The Jam's back catalogue. Released in 1978, The Jam's third album, 'All Mod Cons' requires little introduction, more commercially successful than its predecessor, 'This Is the Modern World' and spawning the single 'Down in the Tube Station at Midnight'.

Singer and guitarist Russell Hasting says "Bruce has often commented on the general vibe in the studio and the feeling that 'they were onto a good thing' as every track stood out and was fun to do! When we were recording his 'Back In The Room' album, the recording process was likened to that of 'All Mod Cons' and we thought, why not play the album front to back as it had never been done before. Also tracks like ‘The Place I Love’ and ‘Fly’ were never in the live set."

As if that wasn't enough, those lucky enough to attend the Portsmouth date will be treated to a guest appearance from The Specials' Terry Hall and Neville Staples!
