The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion Tickets

The Blues isn’t just about guys sitting on porches in the Deep South, playing guitars and lulling you into a trance with mesmerising ballads. It can also be explosive, loud, and very, very potent. The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion is all of this â€" and more. An alternative rock and blues trio formed in 1991, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion hails from that least likely of Blues homes, New York City. Perhaps it is this that gives the trio their exuberance and vibrancy, as well as their distinctive New York vibe that permeates through the solid Blues structure of their music to create a distinctive signature sound.

Fortunately for UK fans, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion tour dates this year include a clutch of British venues, and at Gigantic we have tickets for some of the most sought-after locations on the relatively short tour list. Jon Spencer Blues Explosion tickets are available for London’s Electric Ballroom on October 20th, the Bristol Fleece on the 21st, Sound Control in Manchester on the 22nd and the Oobleck in Birmingham on the 23rd. These are all relatively compact venues, so we anticipate that tickets will sell out quickly.

Although they call themselves a Blues band, they are in fact a fusion of a cocktail of styles that embrace the energy of Punk and noise rock, the freeform structure of Hip Hop, with a taster of Rockabilly just to keep things interesting. Whereas other bands would end up sounding like a cacophony, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion manages to keep all of these elements under control and pulling together as a team, rather than a wild stampede. In the 24 years since their formation, they have perfected and polished their sound and their live presence, and are now big hits particularly at festivals and large events. They’re not a ‘filler’ band by any stretch of the imagination, but a powerful live force to be reckoned with.

A strong back-catalogue of discs including their debut album ‘A Reverse Willie Horton’ through to the retrospective 2010 release ‘Dirty Shirt Rock 'n' Roll: The First Ten Years’, there is plenty of studio recordings to discover. But it is playing live where the band really makes their mark, which is why Jon Spencer Blues Explosion concert tickets are in such high demand. Grab yours from Gigantic while you still can.
