FANS of Woking’s most famous son packed out Woking Leisure Centre for a charity concert to raise funds for Woking and Sam Beare Hospices. About 1,200 tickets were sold for the gig, Wake Up Woking, on Sunday night and it is expected more than £60,000 has been raised for the hospices.
Paul, who grew up in Maybury, praised his “fantastic audience” and said he was pleased to be supporting a great cause. It is the first time he has played in the town for more than 30 years.
Strange Town, Wild Wood, You Do Something to Me and Moonshine were just some of the many tunes in the two-hour set. And the surprise for the night was when Paul welcomed Bruce Foxton, the bass player in The Jam, up on stage for a few numbers, including The Eton Rifles.
The concert was organised after Weller’s friend, Sam Molnar, had a dream to ask his friend to play in the town where his music began.
