14.09.2016 WE WOULD LIKE TO ISSUE A STATEMENT TO JAM FANS!
We would like to issue this statement to Jam fans who are likely to be attending the Charity Night Concert at Liverpool's Echo Arena. It was reported that Rick Buckler is one of the guests that will be attending this event, however we have to state that this is not the case.
Rick Buckler WILL however be attending the Q and A event on Sat 24th Sept as part of the excellent Jam exhibition, but cannot attend the Charity Night Concert . Rick has stated this prior to the Press Release going out and has given his support for the raising of money for this worthy cause.
Rick has always shown commitment to support such events as he did by opening this very exhibition in Liverpool. But Rick would like it known that he did state prior to the press release for the concert that he cannot attend and therefore does not want to let people be mislead by assuming he will be there.
Rick would like to offer his support for those who will be there and hopes that those attending have a great time in support of not only a worthy cause, but also in support of what was a great exhibition of a band he was a part of.

23.05.2016 THE JAM: ABOUT THE YOUNG IDEA EXHIBITION TO OPEN IN LIVERPOOL!
THE JAM: ABOUT THE YOUNG IDEA!
Great news - an extraordinary new exhibition charting the rise and influence of The Jam opens in Liverpool this summer. About The Young Idea is a new, interactive show which picks up on the overwhelming success of the exhibition held at Somerset house last year.
Curators Nicky Weller, Russell Reader and Den Davis have been digging through The Jam archives once again and have unearthed unseen content and exhibits from the band who became the voice of a generation.
And in what's thought to be a world first, they've added a marvellous new interactive element to the show. A new free app will allow visitors to engage with the exhibits by scanning VCodes as well as letting music lovers save five of their favourite exhibits from the show to a mobile device to enjoy in their own time.
The exhibition is open to the public between 1st July and 25th September 2016 at the Cunard Building in Liverpool. Tickets are on sale from Friday 27 May 2016. Only a limited number will be sold for each day to ensure maximum visitor enjoyment.
