PAUL Weller will be performing at Dalby Forest next summer.

He is the first artist to announce gigs as part of Forest Live 2019, the summer concert series promoted by the Forestry Commission.

Weller will be performing at Dalby Forest, near Pickering, on June 28.

His latest release ‘True Meanings’, entered the UK charts at number two.

It is his 14th solo album and the 26th studio album of his career that began in 1977 with The Jam’s debut album ‘In the City’.

Five era-defining albums followed before he experienced further recognition with The Style Council and subsequent success with numerous solo releases such as ‘Wild Wood’, ‘Wake Up The Nation’ and ‘Sonik Kicks’.

Paul Weller’s versatility and creative edge has connected with fans across the generations, making him one of the most significant players of the British Music scene over the past four decades.

He made his Forest Live debut in 2004 and has played to sell-out crowds ever since, with his most recent appearances being in 2014.

Commenting on the new dates, Weller said: “The Forest shows are always great gigs for us and it’s been a while since I last did them so I’m really looking forward to them next year.”
