Iconic 70s British band The Jam never played in New Zealand! One of the most important and influential British bands of the late 70s and early 80s.

Well here’s the news! A quarter of a century on, two thirds of that trio are coming to tour Australasia on the back of a sell-out UK tour.

Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler re-wrote Rock and Roll history in 2007 - Jam fans worldwide thought they would never see this band play their hits together again. “Start”, “Town Called Malice”, "Going Underground” and “Tube Station” are all still pumping out of our radios in 2007. Now, 30 years after the release of their debut single, "In The City", drummer and founding member Rick Buckler and original bassist Bruce Foxton have reunited as From The Jam. The lineup includes session musicians David Moore on guitar and Russell Hastings on vocals.

The Jam and The Clash were to the 70s what The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Who were to the 60s. The Jam was a catalyst for change, cultural icons and reflective of a generation.
