Rock icon Paul Weller has announced his Northern Irish return with a live date at the Waterfront, Belfast on November 16.
The Belfast show comes on the back of the release of his twelfth studio album, ‘Saturn’s Pattern’, which will be released in May.
“I think it’s one of the best things I’ve done…..and it’s been a pleasure doing it,” he said.
The follow up to 2012’s UK No. 1 album ‘Sonik Kicks’, Paul continues to push the boundaries with another kaleidoscopic tour de force delivered with a verve and ambition to shame his contemporaries as he continues to adapt and evolve to stay one step ahead of the pack.
Written and recorded at de facto HQ, Black Barn Studios in Surrey, ‘Saturn’s Pattern’ was produced by Jan ‘Stan’ Kybert and Paul himself.
Musicians on the album feature some of the touring band faithful: Steve Cradock, Andy Crofts, Ben Gordelier and Steve Pilgrim plus an illustrious roll-call of guest musicians who include The Strypes’ Josh McClorey and Paul’s old mate from Woking Steve Brookes who was guitarist in the original line-up of The Jam. Paul also brought in members of his favourite new band Syd Arthur to add to the proceedings.
Tickets for the Belfast show in November are on sale now from all usual outlets.
