Venerable songwriter Joe Jackson has confirmed a run of North American dates following a sold-out 2015 tour and the release of Fast Forward, his first collection of original songs in seven years, via Work Song/Caroline. Tour dates include a stop in New York City, at the Apollo Theater on Friday, July 15.
These career-spanning shows will feature Jackson bringing out a full band which will include longtime collaborator Graham Maby on bass, guitarist Teddy Kumpel (Rickie Lee Jones, Feist), and drummer Doug Yowell (Suzanne Vega, Ari Hest).
Originally conceived to be released as a series of EPs, Fast Forward was produced and arranged by Jackson, and features four sets of four songs recorded in four different cities - New York, New Orleans, Berlin and Amsterdam - each with a different set of first-call supporting musicians. The results rank among the richest and most rewarding music of his storied career.
