Last time From the Jam came to town, their concert at Luton’s UK Centre for Carnival Arts sold out two weeks before the performance.

Now the boys are back with their Setting Sons 35th anniversary concert and it promises to be another mind- blowing event.

From the Jam features original bassist Bruce Foxton. He’s joined by Russell Hastings and Smiley on drums and together they deliver a stunning recreation of The Jam live.

This year marks the 35th anniversary of the group’s seminal 1979 album Setting Sons and this tour will see the band play the album track by track – from start to finish, as it was recorded.

It includes old favourites such as Smithers-Jones, Saturday Kids, Eton Rifles and Paul Weller’s take on Motown anthem Heatwave.

They’ll also play a selection of greatest hits including back catalogue classics like Town Called Malice, Going Undergrund, Beat Surrender, Strange Town, Pretty Green and many more.

Supporting them are The Scruff, a three-piece outfit from Bedford who combine the song-writing ability of the Kinks with quirky guitar pop and a new age twist.

> From the Jam at UKCCA on Friday, September 26. Tickets got £20 in advance from 01582 437100.
