Paul Weller's NYC Show Has Been Cancelled!

There is an email going around from Ticketmaster that says Paul's show in New York City at The Nokia Theater has been cancelled!

  1. Un believable./ My dad is traveling from Sweden JUST to see him with his son (IE me) Disappointment doesn't even cover the feeling. I turned him on to Stanley road, and it has been a favorite of ours ever since. Why the *** was it canceled. We have been looking forwards to this for months.

  3. This seems to be correct. I received the email and Ticketmasters site also lists the concert as cancelled. Bummer - we have booked flights from Buffalo especially to see Paul. Does anyone know the reason?

  4. The reason for the cancellation is listed as "personal" and we wouldn't want to speculate what that means.

    The Letterman appearance has been canceled as well.

  5. I am coming from Kingston Ont and am disappointed to say the least but my heart bleeds for you sweden. I went to see him in London last May and Toronto in Sept both were a blast this crushes me but who knows he might come back, did he preform in the desert?

  6. Timpa- I can relate. Not that it compares with the cost of traveling from Sweden. But I bought concert tickets, plane tickets and booked a hotel, too. I hope you will still have a lovely time in NYC.

  7. I heard his father is ill and may have taken a turn for the worse, which is why the gig was canceled.

Steve White On The Passing of John Weller...

It wasn't unexpected to get the news that John Weller had passed away , it was a beautiful sunny morning in fact , but the news still stung even though the anticipation existed .

I finished work today , a day peppered by texts and calls , I missed the call that mattered but made ammends and spoke to the one person I needed to speak to , I raised a glass at dinner and reminisced with my beautiful partner of days of travel and nights of glory that followed , and after a little to much wine the drowsiness lifted and the harsh reality that someone very special had passed hit me , I wanted to say that , with my emotions bubbling very much to the surface , I wanted to remember those decades and shows and nights that we all spent together , indestructible , laughing and making the music of our dreams , wide eyed vagabonds not quite believing .

I remember the day on arriving back from Sydney, John telling me it was all over and he had enough of "this lark" , that was 24 odd years …

John Weller Obituary From The Independent...

For thirty years, John Weller managed the career of his son Paul, through the salad days and success of The Jam in the Seventies and early Eighties, the ups and downs of The Style Council and Paul’s re-emergence as a solo artist in the Nineties. Theirs was a unique father-son relationship in the music industry, built on John’s unwavering belief in Paul’s talent and shared values like hard work and pragmatism.

John could be blunt, and once refused to have lunch in a record company’s executive dining room, remarking to the managing director: “I didn’t come here to eat, I came to do business.” But his bark was worse than his bite.

John’s success was all the more remarkable since he started in his forties after years working in factories, on building sites and driving a taxi. When The Jam signed to Polydor in February 1977, for a £6,000 advance and a six per cent royalty rate, John admitted he didn’t have a bank account and asked for cash instead of a cheque.

Paul Weller's Son, Natt Gives A Candid Taxi Interview

Where else to meet the musician son of the agelessly groovy Modfather but at London’s trendy Met Bar? And there’s more than a hint of moody Mod style about the Japanese parka that Paul Weller’s eldest child Natt has slung over his Vivienne Westwood top.

Yet there all similarity ends, for singer-guitarist Natt has inherited the exotic beauty of his mother – former Wham! and Style Council backing singer Dee C Lee – rather than the famously angular features of his father.

‘Everybody always goes, “Luckily he took after his mum…”’ laughs Natt, whose mother is from France and St Lucia and whose great-great grandma was Japanese. Hence Natt’s fascination for Japan, where he moved in 2006 for a year to learn the language.

To pay for his studies, he modelled and deejayed, ‘I felt like an outsized monster,’ confides Natt, 21, a 6ft 1in beanpole. He returned a fan of Japan’s popular culture – from manga cartoons to punk-goth music – and with a different spelling to his name, which now features two ‘…
