Paul Weller joins Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Primal Scream, Nile Rodgers and CHIC, Paloma Faith, Tom Jones and Tom Grennan among the headliners so far confirmed for the Live at The Piece Hall 2022 concert series.
Few artists have had as great an influence on the British music scene as Paul Weller. As frontman of The Jam, he spearheaded the Mod revival in the late ’70s and early ’80s, scoring a string of hits before forming The Style Council and then embarking on a stellar solo career.
The last two years have seen an incredible creative output from Weller, releasing no fewer than three new studio albums – all to widespread acclaim.
His wondrous 17th solo album ‘An Orchestrated Songbook’ was released just a month ago. Recorded with award-winning arranger Jules Buckley and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the album reimagines a selection of his vast catalogue including such classics as English Rose, Broken Stones, You’re the Best Thing, Wild Wood and You Do Something to Me.
‘An Orchestrated Songbook’ followed the highly acclaimed Fat Pop: Volume 1 – his second Number One album in 12 months, which followed hot on the heels of the success of 2020’s On Sunset.
Weller’s live shows are the stuff of legend, mixing his unstoppable brand of high adrenaline rock with beautiful acoustic moments. Fans at The Piece Hall will be treated to an incredible evening from an artist who possesses one of music’s most brilliant and diverse catalogues that remains ever relevant.
His show at the Piece Hall is presented by Cuffe and Taylor and The Piece Hall Trust.
Nicky Chance-Thompson DL, CEO of The Piece Hall Trust, said: “What can we say other than ‘wow’ – the legend that is Paul Weller is coming to The Piece Hall!
“Paul is a true music icon, someone who has not only written some of the most cherished songs of the last 50 years, but an artist who has influenced generations of songwriters.
“This is going to be another incredible night here at The Piece Hall and I urge fans to get their tickets early. Many of this year’s headline shows sold out within hours of going on sale and we expect this will be another massively popular night.”
