Paul Weller

With his 10th studio album, Wake Up the Nation, vying for the prestigious Mercury Prize next month, Paul Weller is embarking on an extensive tour this fall that includes a pair of U.S. shows in New York and Los Angeles, a five-night stand in Dublin and concerts throughout Australia and the U.K.

The former Jam leader is in the midst of a run of European festival dates that stretch into September, to be followed by 10 concerts in Australia and New Zealand in October. Then, in November, Weller hits the U.S. for just two shows — Nov. 3 in Los Angeles and Nov. 7 in New York — before an Ireland/U.K. run that opens with five nights at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre and wraps up Dec. 10 at London’s Wembley Arena (see dates below).

On Sept. 7, Weller will learn whether Wake Up the Nation — which features a mini-reunion with ex-Jam bandmate Bruce Foxton — beats out records by the likes of The xx, Mumford & Sons and Dizzee Rascal to take home the Mercury Prize.
