Echo Arena Grand Finale Concert for The Jam Exhibition

It is nearly time to bid farewell to one of the biggest music exhibitions to ever come to Liverpool.

A special concert is to take place to mark the end of the highly acclaimed retrospective of one of the most influential British bands of the last 40 years.

“About The Young Idea” is the popular Cunard Building exhibition dedicated to exploring the music, background, political and social impact of The Jam, and it’s set to come to an end on Thursday, 6 October.

We took our cameras inside the exhibition as it opened and met Nicky Weller to find out more, watch the video below.

As a grand finale to the showcase, Nicky Weller (frontman Paul’s sister and co-curator of the exhibition) is organising a gig – “A Celebration of The Jam” – which will feature original band members, bassist Bruce Foxton and drummer Rick Buckler, who will perform alongside The Paul Weller Band and a host of very special guests.

Taking place on 5th October at the Echo Arena Liverpool, tickets have gone on sale this afternoon (Monday, 12 September) with a percentage of ticket proceeds going to local charities including Be one percent, and Impact England.

After beating cancer in 2014, Nicky Weller needed a new challenge. Inspired by her brother Paul and the legacy of the music he created with The Jam, Nicky has gone on to curate two critically acclaimed exhibitions.

Nicky said: “I really wanted to give something back to the fantastic fans of the band, and what better way to do it than host this show.

“The gig at the Echo Arena will be a brilliant conclusion, with Bruce, Rick and Paul’s band rattling through all the hits like ’Town Called Malice,’ Going Underground,’ Down in the Tubestation,’ and That’s Entertainment.”
Assistant Mayor and Cabinet Member for culture, tourism and events, Councillor Wendy Simon, said: “The success of the exhibition and this charity concert by original members of The Jam just emphasise the city’s credentials as a UNESCO City of Music and UK’s original music city.

“It will be a special night and a must-see for music fans all over the UK.”

Tickets for A Celebration of The Jam are £45 and available here…

About The Young Idea is the second exhibition Nicky and fellow curator’s Den Davis and Russell Reader have developed dedicated to The Jam, after a smaller version took place at London’s Somerset House last summer. Nicky was the founder of The Jam fan club which she set up when she was a teenager.
