Mod­fa­ther Paul Weller set to rock Dalby For­est in June

The Scarborough News - - ARMISTICE 100 -

The ‘Mod­fa­ther’ Paul Weller is set to play Dalby For­est next year in a series of gigs as part of the For­est Live series.

Or­gan­ised by the Forestry Com­mis­sion, Weller is the first big-name artist to an­nounce a series of For­est Live gigs, play­ing Dalby For­est as part of it on June 28.

His lat­est re­lease ‘True Mean­ings’, en­tered the UK charts at No 2. It is his four­teenth solo al­bum and the twenty-sixth stu­dio al­bum of his ca­reer that be­gan in 1977 with The Jam’s de­but al­bum ‘In the City’.

Five era-defin­ing al­bums fol­lowed be­fore he ex­pe­ri­enced fur­ther recog­ni­tion with The Style Coun­cil and sub­se­quent suc­cess with nu­mer­ous solo re­leases such as ‘Wild Wood’, ‘Wake Up The Na­tion’ and ‘Sonik Kicks’.

Weller’s ver­sa­til­ity and cre­ative edge has con­nected with fans across the gen­er­a­tions, mak­ing him one of the most sig­nif­i­cant play­ers of the Bri­tish Mu­sic scene over the past four decades. A cul­tural icon, his im­pact, rel­e­vance and pop­u­lar­ity with the pub­lic, fel­low mu­si­cians and crit­ics alike re­mains un­abated in his mile­stone 60th year.

Weller made his For­est Live de­but in 2004 and has played to sell-out crowds ever since, with his most re­cent ap­pear­ances be­ing in 2014. Com­ment­ing on the new dates, he said: “The For­est shows are al­ways great gigs for us and it’s been a while since I last did them so I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to them next year.” Tick­ets to see Weller cost £48.50 (plus £5.35 book­ing fee) and go on sale on at 9am on Fri­day morn­ing.
