Joe Jackson Tonight is an all too rare opportunity to see Joe Jackson, singer, songwriter, pianist and writer, on his “Fast Forward” UK Tour. Jackson arrived in the New Wave/Post punk scene in 1979 with his “Look Sharp” album containing the witty and acerbic “Is She Really Going Out With Him?” Born in Burton, Jackson grew up in Portsmouth, and is now Berlin based via London and New York. The show is a sellout, and the older crowd (with a few youngsters dotted around) eagerly await the start of the show. To get the crowd in the mood, we are treated to some old time jazz to warm us up ready for the show. I’m hoping for some “Jumping Jive” at some point this evening.
