Grand finale concert for The Jam exhibition - tickets on sale this
A special concert is to take place in Liverpool to mark the end of the highly acclaimed retrospective of one of the most influential British bands of the last 40 years.
“About The Young Idea” is the popular Cunard Building exhibition dedicated to exploring the music, background, political and social impact of The Jam, and it’s set to come to an end on Thursday, 6 October.
As a grand finale to the showcase, Nicky Weller (frontman Paul’s sister and co-curator of the exhibition) is organising a gig – “A Celebration of The Jam” – which will feature original band members, bassist Bruce Foxton and drummer Rick Buckler, who will perform alongside The Paul Weller Band and a host of very special guests.
Taking place on 5th October at the Echo Arena Liverpool, tickets go on sale at 3pm today (Monday, 12 September) with a percentage of ticket proceeds going to local charities including Be one percent and Impact England.
