"From The Jam featuring Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler", two thirds of the original line-up of The Jam, today announced a major 21-date UK tour in November and December. The new tour follows the sold out 20 UK dates in May (which sold out in two weeks).

The winter tour starts Saturday November 24th at Plymouth Pavilions, and includes London, Glasgow and Birmingham and ends at Brighton Centre on Friday December 21st. The Brighton gig marks the band's 25th anniversary and coincides with when the original line-up performed their last ever concert together at the very same venue (Brighton Centre, December 11th 1982).

Overall, public and media reaction to Foxton and Buckler's pending May UK tour has been nothing short of phenomenal. "The fans have proven to us that they still feel passionate about the music of the Jam," says original Jam bassist Bruce Foxton. "We're still genuinely overwhelmed by the support and interest in the band."

Foxton and Buckler will perform all of the Jam's greatest hits and classic tracks from their studio albums including That's Entertainment, A Bomb In Wardour Street, This Is The Modern World, Going Underground, A Town Called Malice, The Gift, plus other Jam originals written by Foxton including Smithers Jones and News of the World.

Bruce and Rick are in the process of recording new material for release in 2008, including fresh versions of Bruce's own early songs. The release will coincide with a North American and Japanese tour.

"We deliberately set out to make the May gigs intimate," says Bruce. "For us it's all about getting closer to the fans. The concerts in November and December see us playing larger venues, accompanied with a bigger show. The new tour will give those people who didn’t manage to get tickets for the May shows, a chance to do so."

In 2006 Bruce joined Rick, Russell Hastings and David Moore as special guest during concerts in Guildford, Birmingham and Brighton.

"I have reflected on the continual demand from the public for a full Jam reunion," says Bruce. "Rick and I have talked this over very carefully. The Jam means so much to everyone, including ourselves."

The line-up includes Bruce Foxton (bass,vocals), Rick Buckler (drums), Russell Hastings (vocals,guitar) and David Moore (guitar, keyboards).

The songs still sound exciting," says drummer Rick Buckler. We have just returned from playing three concerts in Italy and the crowds went crazy. The songs sound bigger and more edgy. Bruce and I are really excited about touring together this year and it gives everyone in the UK the opportunity to see us in great venues.
