Mod-rockers The Jam are to reform and tour but without frontman Paul Weller.
Foxton and Buckler have invited Weller to join them
Bassist Bruce Foxton and drummer Rick Buckler have not toured together in 25 years but will play a 20-date tour from 2 May, beginning in Oxford.
The Jam sold over 14 million albums worldwide before their 1982 split. The new tour will feature a mix of old hits and new material.
Paul Weller, who has had a successful solo career, has been invited to join the tour but has not commented.
Foxton said: "This tour is deliberately intimate and something of a warm-up to our own material to launch later.
"The plan is for us to get close to the fans, have some fun and then follow with a larger tour in the autumn."
Buckler added: "Paul Weller has a fantastic solo career and is one of the UK's most talented songwriters.
"Paul is always welcome to join us for the reunion, but until then, we've got a tour and a new album to do!"
The tour will take in venues across the UK such as Aberdeen, Nottingham, Liverpool and Guildford, before ending in Portsmouth on 27 May.
The album is planned for release in the autumn.
