“I am very happy to be playing the Forest Live gigs again as they are always such great shows with such a great audience,” Paul Weller has said.

Paul Weller will play more Forest Live gigs this year, appearing in Gloucestershire, Staffordshire and Suffolk during June.

Tickets go on sale from 9am UK time, January 20th for the shows which have been booked at Westonbirt Arboretum on June 8th, Cannock Chase Forest on the 9th and Thetford Forest on the 10th.

We caught Weller live at the at Caird Hall in Dundee last year, and in 2021 were at his shows in Liverpool and Bath.

“The beautiful surroundings (formerly an art deco cinema, and with towering acoustics) suit the event well. As raucous as the crunching White Sky or the rollicking The Changing Man are, they are offset by the tenderness of Aspects or Gravity and so on,” our review from Bath reads.

“One is reminded that the list of songs he can choose from is becoming endless, and Weller could select an entirely different set which would be equally thrilling.”

“Because he’s never gone away, it’s easy to forget the influence and significance of this 63-year-old man. Two-and-a-half hours of music may perhaps test the audience, but if anyone deserves a bit of self-indulgence, it’s him.”
