Joe Jackson

Singer-songwriter Joe Jackson has confirmed a 2018 summer tour visiting cities across the U.S. and Canada, continuing his long-running Fast Forward Tour. These new dates follow four tours over the last two years.

Accompanying 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 never visited before. His set will once again feature songs from across Jackson’s entire catalog, including a mix of songs from his earliest albums as well as 2015’s Fast Forward. Jackson will also offer a selection of covers and brand new, never before performed originals.

The British Jackson first came to prominence during the new wave era in the late ’70s, with albums such as Look Sharp! and I’m the Man. His peak in the United States came in 1982 with the album Night and Day, which peaked at #4 on the Billboard album chart and earned Grammy nominations for Record of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Performance, Male. Jackson’s biggest single hit was “Syteppin’ Out,” also in 1982.

Although Jackson last made the singles chart in the U.S. in 1984, and the album chart in 2008, Jackson has continued to tour and record. He published his memoir, A Cure for Gravity, in 1999
