You may be aware that 2009 is in fact the 50th anniversary of Island Records and with it being a major landmark in the labels history, there is a series of events planned to celebrate the fact.
Central to this is a week of shows at the Shepherds Bush Empire in late May (25th-31st) featuring a collection of both legendary and contemporary Island artists from the full breadth of the musical spectrum. As you might expect this includes Paul and he will be headlining a show on Friday 29th May.
Tickets will go on general sale this Friday, available from www.island50.com where you can also get further information about the whole event. However, there will be a limited amount of tickets exclusively available to Weller fans on Wednesday 11th March starting at 9am from here (the link won't go live until then and no password will be required when the link is live until the ticket allocation is sold out). These tickets will be for the stalls area and will cost £37.50.
Once the tickets go on general sale they will also be available from Ticketmaster and Seetickets.
Come and join us for what promises to be a very special night in a special week.
Best of luck!
