Paul Weller has rescheduled his planned UK autumn tour dates due to the coronavirus outbreak. The musician was due to hit the road in October in support of his fifteenth solo album ‘On Sunset’, which is now slated for release on 3 July. However, it has been confirmed that Weller’s headline tour has been postponed until June and July 2021 – you can see the full schedule below.
“It is with huge disappointment to us that we have had to reschedule Paul Weller’s 2020 autumn UK tour to summer 2021,” an official statement on Weller’s social media channels reads. “Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic and continued restrictions on public gatherings, we had to make this difficult decision.”
Tickets purchased for the autumn 2020 shows remain valid for next year’s performances. Alternatively, fans who cannot make the new dates can request a refund from their point of purchase.
The news comes after Weller shared his latest single, ‘Village’ last month. The song was co-written with his long-time producer Jan ‘Stan’ Kybert, and it features his former Style Council bandmate Mick Talbot on keyboards.
Ahead of the coronavirus-enforced lockdown, Paul Weller took to the stage at the BBC 6 Music Festival in March. Speaking to Lauren Laverne at the Camden event, he recalled collaborating with the “amazing” Amy Winehouse.
