Earlier this week. Paul Weller announced a number of European concert dates, with shows in France, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. The shows open on May 11 at L’Aeronef in Lille. The singer-songwriter then plays concerts in Antwerp, Berlin, Hamburg, Köln, Nijmegan and Amsterdam before the tour finished at the Poppodium in Tilburg, Netherlands, on May 23.
Following his European jaunt, Weller is set to play live dates as part of ‘Forest Live’ 2023. The Jam’s former frontman will take to the stage at the UK’s Westonbirt Arboretum in Gloucestershire, Cannock Chase Forest in Staffordshire and Thetford Forest in Suffolk in June this year.
The tour will follow on from the publication of his new book, Magic: A Journal of Song in April. Magic combines a selection of over 100 lyrics from across his musical life, from The Jam’s punk sensibilities to the genre-defying Style Council, through to a remarkable 30-year solo career.
