From the Promoter
Following an unforgettable performance in 2015, Paul Weller makes his triumphant return to the Commodore Ballroom for two nights on October 16 and 17. The 2015 show was Weller’s first appearance in Vancouver in over 30 years and sold out months in advance, despite falling on the same night that fellow mod stars The Who were scheduled to play Vancouver. Marking the only two night stand on the 2017 North American tour outside of New York City, Weller’s return to the Commodore will inevitably be the highlight of the fall concert season. Tickets will go on sale Friday, May 12 at 10am.
2017, marks the 40th anniversary of Paul Weller’s first album, In The City, which he released with The Jam in May 1977. For most artists such a landmark would be greeted with extensive retrospective celebrations: lavish reissues, commemorative tours of the original album. All that jazz. But Paul Weller is not like most artists. Instead, Paul Weller will mark his 40th anniversary of recording albums by releasing a new studio album, almost bang on the anniversary date in May, because releasing new albums is what Paul Weller does. He powers forwards, always, almost clinically averse to nostalgia or checking his progress in the rear-view mirror.
