Paul Weller has announced a UK tour.
The 58-year-old singer/songwriter will kick off a string of dates on March 31 with a Teenage Cancer Trust show at the Royal Albert Hall, followed by concerts in Bristol, Northampton, Leicester, Doncaster, York, from April 1-7.
The former Jam frontman will then head to Blackburn, Lancashire, on April 8, before playing in Liverpool, Watford, Folkestone Leas and culminating his UK tour in Reading, south east England, on April 13.
Paul could well be joined on stage by Olly Murs at his Teenage Cancer Trust gig as the former 'X Factor' star, who is also performing at the charity event, has recently admitted he would love to team up with the rocker.
Speaking about his 2014 track 'Let Me In', which Paul co-wrote, Olly said: "I might get that Weller song into the set, see what we can do on the night.
"I want to make the show as special as and spectacular as I can.
"I'd love to play with Paul. Whether I do or not I will be there to watch his gig, he's one of my idols."
Paul recently admitted he is "honoured" to be in the line-up for the Teenage Cancer Trust shows.
He said: "It's important to support the continuously incredible work that Teenage Cancer Trust does.
"It's an honour to be able to perform for them and hopefully help raise money for teenagers when they need it the most."
Tickets for Paul's tour will go on general sale on Friday (09.12.16) at 10am.
