Paul Weller has been announced as the latest headliner of Greenwich Music Time festival 2019. The Modfather is confirmed to perform at the event on Sunday, 7 July.
Weller is the second artist to be announced for the festival, after Sir Cliff Richard was confirmed last month. More acts are set to be announced over the coming months for Greenwich Music Time, which celebrates its fifth year in 2019.
Weller, who first rose to prominence as frontman of the influential rock band The Jam, released his 14th studio album True Meanings in September.
“It’s always good to play in London and we are looking forward to what will be a great gig”, Weller said of playing Greenwich Music Time in a statement.
Peter Taylor, director and concert promoter at Cuffe & Taylor, added: “What a show this will be! We can’t wait to welcome Paul Weller to Greenwich Music Time. He gives his live shows his all and the audience really feel it. It’ll be a special one.”
The Greenwich Music Time series of concerts, which will take place 1-7 July 2019, are set amongst the city’s most impressive backdrop. Framed by the pillars of the stunning Old Royal Naval College, the Thames and the London city skyline are viewable against the stage to complete the ultimate concert experience in London. It’s a truly special venue offering a breath-taking setting like no other.
Greenwich Music Time is one of the biggest new music events in the city, with the likes of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and Tom Jones performing at the festival earlier this year. Il Divo, The Jacksons, Seal, Joe Bonamassa and 10CC have also performed at the event over recent years.
Tickets for Paul Weller’s performance go on sale at 9am on Friday, 14 December. For more information, please visit the festival’s official website.
