Foxton is a part of the English rock and roll establishment.

In The Jam, he and drummer Rick Buckler were the driving force, power and rhythm section behind singer, guitarist, and songwriter Paul Weller.

After The Jam split in ‘82, Foxton pursued a solo career.

He had a hit with the single ‘Freak’ and collaborated with other musicians, until he got the call from Stiff Little Fingers’ Jake Burns.

He stayed with Stiff Little Fingers for 15 years, recording four albums, namely, Flags and Emblems, Get a Life, Tinderbox and Guitar and Drum.

In the Jam will be joined by The Blockheads who have been rarely off the road since the death of their lead singer Ian Dury in 2000.

The punk band, famed for hits such as Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick, Wake Up And Make Love With Me and Reasons To Be Cheerful Part 3, is still made up of original members Chaz Jankel, Norman Watt-Roy, John Turnbull and Mick Gallagher and are fronted by Derek ‘The Draw’ Hussey.

Tickets for the gig, which starts at 6pm, cost 25.

Call 0844 854 1358.
