Joe Jackson: Fast Forward Tour

The ever-restless British-born, NYC/Berlin-based singer/songwriter Joe Jackson makes a rare Buffalo appearance. With a string of 19 studio albums and multiple Grammy nominations, Jackson rocketed to stardom with songs including "Is She Really Going Out With Him?", "Steppin' Out" and "It's Different for Girls." Over a long career Joe has traversed territory ranging from cabaret and film scores to classical music, pop and jump blues. His latest release, 2015's Fast Forward, is his first collection of original songs in seven years. The career-spanning show will include longtime collaborator Graham Maby on bass, guitarist Teddy Kumpel (Rickie Lee Jones, Feist), and drummer Doug Yowell (Suzanne Vega, Ari Hest).
