An explosive night of rock is promised for music fans in Blyth this weekend, as The Jam bass player returns to the stage.

Bruce Foxton was the driving force of the band’s power and rhythm section behind Paul Weller’s vocals.

Foxton provided lead vocals for the classic track News of the World, which came from a catalogue of his own compositions.

After The Jam split in 1982, Foxton pursued a solo career before joining Stiff Little Fingers, who he stayed with for fifteen years and four albums.

Now he’s touring again, with band From The Jam, performing all the classic tracks he helped to create, and will be calling in at the Phoenix Theatre in Blyth, on Saturday, April 27.

Joining him on the night will be rock drummer Mark Brzezicki, primarily known for his work with Big Country, and for playing alongside names such as Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, and Midge Ure.

Also performing will be Russell Hastings, who has been shocking audiences with his authentic and passionate performance of The Jam’s back catalogue.

With excellent attention to detail including a Rickenbacker and Marshall 4x4, this is a great opportunity to celebrate some of rock’s greatest music, with a mix of all the classic hits from the iconic band as well as some new material.

From The Jam – In The City Tour 1977-2012 will be at the Phoenix Theatre on Beaconsfield Street in Blyth, at 8pm on Saturday.

Tickets are priced at £20 and can be booked by visiting or by calling the box office on (01670) 367228.
