From the Jam forced to cancel tour
The Jam have been forced to cancel their upcoming Australian tour after drummer Mark Brzezicki quit the line-up.

A statement on the band’s website says: ‘‘Select Touring and Big Apachee regret to announce, due to the unforeseen exit of From The Jam’s drummer Mark Brzezicki, From The Jam’s upcoming Australian tour has been cancelled. We wish Mark all the best for the future and Big Country.’’ All tickets will be refunded.
