Paul Weller is touring after the release of his sixteenth solo studio album last year.
Predictably, Paul Weller has been busier than most since the restart of live music in 2021, this latest UK tour due to continue at the O2 Apollo in Manchester tomorrow night.
When he was out on the road last autumn, Live4ever caught the show at the Bath Forum where there was a careful balancing act of, ‘giving everyone what they want, while pleasing his band and himself’:
“Arguably Weller’s most successful solo album (Stanley Road) is represented in its section with a hefty five tunes (including singalong hits Broken Stones and You Do Something To Me), the tender beauty of True Meanings forms most of the first encore (entirely acoustic) along with rare B-side Dusk Til Dawn and, ironically as his most recent album, there’s only room for four tracks (once again, out of 35) from Fat Pop Vol. 1,” the review reads.
