Having recently dropped news about his latest album, Paul Weller has been on (a sold out) tour of the UK. It took him to Cambridge last night – Friday 13th – where Louder Than War photographer Valerio Berdini achieved a long standing ambition to shoot the ex-Jam man. A selection of his photos are below, along with more info about that new album and a run of live dates at the end of the year.

Titled Saturns Pattern and due out 11th May the new album is the follow-up to 2012’s No. 1 album Sonik Kicks.

Via the press release:

“Paul continues to push the boundaries with another kaleidoscopic tour de force delivered with a verve and ambition to shame his contemporaries as he continues to adapt and evolve to stay one step ahead of the pack.”

“Passion, progression, languid grooves and, as ever, spine-tingling rock’n’roll – Paul Weller has, yet again, delivered another masterpiece.”

More info about the album can be found at Paul’s website, paulweller.com. Keep up to date with Paul Weller news on Facebook and twitter: @PaulWellerNews and @paulwellerhq.

  1. Where are you playing in france? From your biggest fan!

  2. quality pictures. I was there last night oh my god this man is a legend. He absolutly smashed it . Brilliant night

  3. Huge talent, but deeply disapointed by terrible sound mix – no seperation – there was some great playing going on in there somewhere – never thought Id have to exit a Paul Weller gig after 45 minutes… I cant be the only one who thought the sound a disgrace? Im sure PW wouldnt put up with it if he knew?

    • I have seen Weller 15+ times and this was the 1st gig that I have come away feeling a bit disappointed. Tim Booth of James talked recently about choosing a set list based on the day of the week. This felt like a Monday night set rather than a Friday. Many great songs and some real favourites (Friday Street and Picking Up Sticks) but just felt a bit lacklustre in parts.

  4. I was at the Cambridge corn exchange for this , paul and the guys were superb, yes they hd a sound problem but ” the show must go on ”
    As is traditional Paul finished with malice, the whole theatre sang with him, and gave him a standing audition. I for one thought it was a great night, Paul is still setting the standard. good on yer.

  5. probably the worst sound mix I’ve ever heard at a gig – such a shame.
    Great set with loads of energy as usual, just a shame you couldn’t hear any of the individual talents of the band.
    Can only hope for better sound next time.
