Paul Weller at the theater previously known as Nokia (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)
Paul Weller

Though tickets are still available for his November 7th show at Best Buy Theater (formerly Nokia), Paul Weller has added a November 6th NYC show at Apollo Theater. Tickets for the new gig are currently on "AEG", "Venue" and "Fan Club" presale(s) (password = NOTEARS) and go on general sale Friday at noon (9/24). The NYC shows are two of three US dates scheduled for the ex-Style Council/The Jam member.

Speaking of The Jam, the band's 1980 album Sound Affects will be re-released on 11/1 in celebration of its 30th anniversary. The two-disc edition will feature 22 bonus tracks, as well as as demos, covers, b-sides and alternative versions. Tracklisting is below.

Paul Weller's Wake Up The Nation didn't win the Mercury Prize (that honor went to The xx), but Paul has another chance to win something. Q Magazine recently released its nominees for their annual "Q Awards" and Paul Weller was nominated for the "Best Male Artist". The list of nominees (and all Paul Weller tour dates) are below... some interesting choices...

i'm confused - is he touring the solo record, or (mostly) playing jam songs including an emphasis on sound affects?

solo record tour

I wish I hadn't gotten tickets to the "Best Buy" Theater, I would much rather go to the Apollo. PAUL WELLER IS THE MAN!!!

The new Weller record is so good

Weller always plays some Jam tunes (lately it's been "Art School"). Personally, I would like to hear more of his early solo material in the mix.

7th row at the Apollo was the best I could get with the Fan pre-sale this past Wednesday. Folks are getting around the same or better with other pre-sales but there seems to be no rhyme or reason with these things....anyway, truly excited to see Weller at a historic theatre like the Apollo. Weller never disappoints from his Jam days to present day although some venues are better for sound, crowds, etc.

right at noon at general sale had a choice of far left 7th row and center 10th row - went with center 10th.
so it seems that pre-sales not worth much.

last saw him at the former Nokia, which can be either a great or crappy venue depending on the sound mix. But Weller at the Apollo, that sounds perfect.
