Rock star Paul Weller is coming back to Cumbria this year.

Weller, who achieved fame in the 1970s and 1980s with the Jam and The Style Council, is coming to The Sands Centre in Carlisle on Monday, November 9.

The autumn tour follows an already sold out May tour, plus the announcement of Paul’s eagerly awaited new album “On Sunset” which will be released on June 12. “On Sunset” will be Paul’s first release for his new label Polydor.

He has released a number of solo albums over the years, including Stanley Road and Heavy Soul.

Weller, who has performed at The Sands previously, gets back on the road in October and November to play 19 dates across the UK and Ireland.

He will also be playing an acoustic set at the Royal Albert Hall on March 25 with special guests The Stereophonics for The Teenage Cancer Trust.
