My farewell to The Jam at Whitley Bay Ice Rink September 1982

The Jam Whitley Bay Ice Rink September 1982
jamtixwhitleybay By the end of 1982 it was all over and The Jam were no more. The last time I saw them play was at the cavernous (and cold) Ice Rink in Whitley Bay. This was the first gig to be held at the Ice Rink which was used as a venue for large gigs before Newcastle Arena was built. The Jam played two nights in the massive venue and once again showed what a great band they were. jamprog82 I saw the Style Council a few times, and couldn’t really get away with them, and saw Paul Weller in concert a few years ago, and he was just great. But nothing compares to The Jam in the late 70s and early 80s. Role on the reunion (never say never 🙂 ). The setlist from The Jam’s final gig which was at Brighton (where else for a true mod band?) Centre in December 1982: Start!; It’s Too Bad; Beat Surrender; Away From the Numbers; Ghosts; In the Crowd; Boy About Town; Get Yourself Together; All Mod Cons; To Be Someone (Didn’t We Have a Nice Time); Smithers-Jones; Tales From the Riverbank; Precious; Move On Up; Circus; Down in the Tube Station at Midnight. Encore: David Watts; Mr Clean; Going Underground; In the City; Town Called Malice. Encore 2: The Butterfly Collector; Pretty Green; The Gift
