Joe Jackson Tickets
Joe Jackson TicketsBorn David Ian Jackson in Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, England, on August 11, 1954, Joe Jackson's first instrument was the violin, which he picked up in high school. Soon thereafter, he shifted to piano, the instrument he's best known for outside of his strong and unmistakable vocals. By 16 years of age, Joe Jackson was already playing for piano bar audiences, still under his given name. He then earned a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music in London to study composition. He started a couple of bands - or one band that went by a couple of names - played the cabaret circuit, and the rest, as they say, is pop-rock history.
Joe Piano JacksonDavid Jackson became Joe Jackson as more and more people started comparing his appearance to that of a puppet character named Joe Piano which, in turn, was the Peanuts character Snoopy's "Joe Cool" character playing the piano. The Joe Jackson band form in 1979, one year after Joe Jackson was signed by A&M Records. His debut album, Look Sharp!, garnered instant critical acclaim and, in 2013, was named by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the 100 all-time greatest debut albums. Just one of its hits, "Is She Really Going Out with Him?" hit the top 40 in five nations and, in Canada, reached No. 9. Since then, Joe Jackson has released 20 other studio albums, most recently Fool in 2019, as well as 10 live albums, five compilation albums, three video albums and over 40 singles.
