Paul Weller announced as Bedford Park Concerts’ summer headliner

Paul Weller

We all need something to look forward to in these dark and uncertain times, so thank goodness for Bedford Park Concerts.

To celebrate their 25th anniversary year, they have pulled out all the stops and have announced that the legendary Paul Weller will headline the Saturday night show.

Tickets will go on sale on the website at 10am on Thursday 19 March.

Paul will be holding a summer show in Bedford on Saturday 1 August, where he will be debuting new material and performing classics from his back catalogue such as ‘Wild Wood’, ‘Wake up the Nation’ and ‘You do Something to Me’.

In light of the latest advice from the government regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, organiser Mark Harrison said, “We are monitoring government advice daily and unless we hear otherwise we are looking forward to a ‘long hot summer’ with Paul Weller on Sat 1st August.

“We will keep all our customers updated throughout these testing times but for now we remain excited and optimistic for the summer shows.”

Known as much for his style as his music, the ‘Modfather’ began his career with the Jam in the 1970s and has been evolving ever since, through the Style Council and then with hugely solo albums.

Paul will be launching his fifteenth solo album ‘On Sunset’ on 12 June, which sees him take his music in an exciting new direction once again, and fans will be able to witness some of these new tracks during his Bedford Park headline set.

Commenting on the date Paul said, “I am looking forward to playing in Bedford Park and it’s exciting to announce this special outdoor UK summer show.”

Tickets are £46.50 (general admission), with VIP upgrade at £95 and green room upgrade and additional £25.
