Following the unveiling last week of his True Meanings album – “an album characterised by grandiose-yet-delicate, lush orchestration” – Paul Weller has announced that he’ll play two special orchestral shows at London’s Royal Festival Hall in October.
The concerts – on October 11 and 12 – will be Weller’s only True Meanings shows this year.
“It’s going to be a special two shows performing tracks from the new album and adding some older tracks into the set, all backed with a brilliant orchestra,” says Weller.
Tickets go on sale to Southbank Members on Thursday (July 19) at 10am, with general sale opening at 10am on Friday. More details here.
