Legendary songwriter Joe Jackson has confirmed a 2018 summer tour visiting cities across the U.S. and Canada, adding one more “encore” to his long-running Fast Forward Tour. These new dates follow four acclaimed tours over the last two years.
Supporting Jackson once again will be long-time collaborator, Graham Maby on bass, along with guitarist Teddy Kumpel (Rickie Lee Jones, Feist) and drummer Doug Yowell (Suzanne Vega, Ari Hest).
The tour includes several cities where Jackson hasn’t been in years and several he’s nevervisited before. His set will once again feature songs from across Jackson’s entire catalogue, including a mix of songs from his earliest albums as well as 2015’s critically acclaimed Fast Forward. Jackson will also offer an unpredictable selection of covers and brand new, never before performed originals.
“…a set that perfectly balanced his masterful touch on a piano ballad with his ability to rock out.” – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
“Jackson’s loose arrangements left room for occasional lilting improv, and highlighted that his voice remains a marvel: pristine and soulful, and edged with vibrato and falsetto.”
