Myself and my wife, both 50 somethings and Jam fans, have just returned from seeing Weller in Dublin. It was an absolutely brilliant performance throughout, starting with songs off his new album, now a must buy! he rolled back the years smashing out songs like The Weaver, Broken Stones and finishing a great night with a Town Called Malice. You certainly get your monies worth from this legend.
I went to see him at the arena in Manchester, end of November 2015. To say Weller was on top form is an understatement. The show was amazing from start to finish. Man In The Corner Shop was a blast, and so were tracks from his new album. Finished with A Town Called Malice. amazing evening with a great artist. roll on the next tour Mr Weller, you are still number one.
I took my 15 yr old son to see the modfather, several years ago as he's been bought up listening to the best, last xmas my gift was him now a man taking me to see him, was well worth getting there early on both occasions to be leaning on that barrier with the legend singing before my eyes, not forgetting Steve too, amazing, plus first time I gained a plectrum, which is now nicely framed with the flyer of tour, only seen him 3 times, just gets better n better, could watch in awe, daily x
Yet again a great performance from The Modfather. Mixing up a selection of classics old and new. He played his own songs along with song from the Jam went down very well! I think some people were put off by the sheer amount of newer material he played, but people must learn that Weller is still recording brand new material and doesnt want to perform the same old Jam tracks over and over. He still has a huge amount of energy and passion when performing. Superb gig, roll on next time!
Another outstanding performance from The Modfather. He doesnt do bad gigs. Mixing up a selection of classics old and new, Weller was on form from the minutes he came on stage. My only criticisms would be that he doesn't play many of his older classic hits anymore. A lot of the set was drawn from his latest album and I think most of the audience expected a run out of all his hits. Secondly, he didnt really say much during the show. Could've done with a bit more interaction although with Weller its the music that does the talking.
