Paul Weller To Play Royal Palace

Paul Weller and Girls Aloud have been named as the two headliners for a two day music event taking place on the Isle of Wight this July.

Weller will headline the former island home of Queen Victoria, Osborne House on July 26, and Girls Aloud will top the bill on July 27.

Weller whose new studio album 22 Dreams is released soon says this is one of the few UK festival shows he will play. The singer who last played the island in 2003, headlining the Isle Of Wight Festival says: "I'm very much looking forward to paying Osborne House, it's one of the few outdoor shows I'm doing this summer so I'm hoping it will be a good one!"

More acts for both days are to be announced in the coming weeks.

Tickets for the Osborne House events will go on sale on Monday (April 21)
