Remember Jones — who has presented complete-album shows in the past devoted to classics such as Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black, Meat Loaf’s Bat Out of Hell and Joe Cocker’s Mad Dogs & Englishmen — will debut a new one, featuring Maroon 5’s 2002 debut Songs About Jane and more, at four venues in February.
One will be The Vogel at The Count Basie Center for the Arts in Red Bank, Feb. 24. Tickets go on sale Jan. 13.
Remember Jones and his 10-piece band also will perform at Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg, Feb. 17; StageOne at The Fairfield Theatre Company in Fairfield, Conn., Feb. 18; and Brooklyn Bowl in Philadelphia, Feb. 23.
Though released in 2002, the album — which yielded the hits “She Will Be Loved,” “This Love,” “Harder to Breathe” and “Sunday Morning” — was re-released in 2003, making these shows a 20th anniversary tribute.
“This album came out as I graduated high school and I played it on a loop for months,” said Remember Jones in a press release. “It was the soundtrack to a very special time in my life. Its sound, writing, and stories reinforced the musician I wanted to be. This one is noteworthy and I’ve waited a long time to bring it to life.”
