Paul Weller, Jules Buckley & BBC Symphony Orchestra

Live from the Barbican

Paul Weller takes to the stage for his first live gig in two years, with the backing of the BBC Symphony Orchestra in a performance curated and arranged by the multi-talented Jules Buckley.

Together over the course of the evening they will track Weller’s career from his early work in The Jam to brand new songs from an album we haven’t even heard yet. As is his nature, Weller will pick up on the past, but with a forward-looking eye, as he invites special guests Boy George, Celeste and James Morrison to the stage to celebrate his music and its influence.

With a career spanning nearly 50 years, Paul Weller remains one of the most successful British singer-songwriters of all time. Known for pushing the boundaries of musical genres to a new level, Jules Buckley curates a special one-off experience as he gives Paul Weller’s wide-ranging songs the symphonic treatment. 

This livestream will be available to watch back until Mon 17 May at 8pm. You can buy a ticket up until this point.
