Former Jam leader Paul Weller — who will release Sonik Kicks, featuring appearances by Noel Gallagher and Graham Coxon in March — this morning announced a two-night stand at the Best Buy Theater in New York City this May, which is being billed as the rocker’s only North American appearance of 2012.
Tickets for the May 18-19 concerts go on sale noon EST Friday via Ticketmaster or the venue’s box office. Weller is set to release the 14-track Sonik Kicks on March 26 in the U.K. and March 27 in the U.S., and has previewed the set with “Around the Lake,” which can be streamed here.
Weller, who this year celebrates the 35th anniversary of the Jam’s debut In the City and the 20th anniversary of his self-titled solo debut, will preview Sonik Kicks by playing the album in its entirety during a five-night stand at London’s Roundhouse in March.
