Bruce is putting on the Ritz to celebrate a classic album by The Jam 35 years later reports The Burton Mail

ORIGINAL member of The Jam, Bruce Foxton, brings his current band to Burton this autumn. 

From the Jam is set to bring the Sound Affects tour to The Ritz on October 22 to celebrate the album's 35th anniversary. 

In November 1980, The Jam released their fifth studio album Sound Affects featuring their second single to reach the No 1 spot, Start! and the acoustic classic That's Entertainment, considered to be one of the 500 greatest songs of all time by Rolling Stone. 

This album often competes for the title of The Jam's best record due to its mix of 1960s psychedelic rock and funk alongside a political commentary that was innovative for its time. 

From The Jam, featuring original member and bass player Bruce Foxton and guitarist/vocalist Russell Hastings, will perform the album in its entirety. 

The audience can also expect From The Jam to perform a selection of hits and album tracks from The Jam's back catalogue and songs from Bruce Foxton's solo career. 

Bruce said: "The whole idea of playing an album in full has really taken off for us and has brought back so many great memories. We will also, of course, play the hits and more to make what I think will be a great night." 

The box office is on 01244 546 201 or go  to book tickets for the gig.
