Joe Jackson Announces Summer Tour

Jacob Blickenstaff

Joe Jackson is returning to the road for a fresh round of North American tour dates this summer.

Jackson’s latest tour, which comes in support of his recent Fast Forward LP, is scheduled to begin June 16 in Scottsdale, Ariz., and continue through mid-July, when the currently announced list of shows concludes with a performance at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, N.Y.

According to Jackson’s press release announcing the tour, his 2016 calendar pays special attention to cities he skipped during his travels last fall, as well as return headlining engagements in San Francisco, Boston and New York. He’s also booked four shows in Canada, with promises that more will be “announced soon.”

Speaking with Salon after Fast Forward‘s release, Jackson promised a blend of hits, deep cuts, new numbers and a few surprises during the tour. “Old songs and new songs as usual, really. I’m gonna be doing some songs solo as well, and apart from that, I think it’s good if people don’t entirely know what to expect,” he said. “There are plenty of older songs that I like to play, but I don’t wanna be any more specific because I think it’s nice to have a few surprises.”
