Weller excited about forest shows

Paul Weller is to perform five forest shows this summer

Paul Weller is set to play five forest shows this summer.

The Modfather will perform as part of the Forestry Commission's Forest Live concert series, which takes place at woodland locations across the country.

"It's a favourite summer jaunt for me so I look forward to performing in a few of the forests that I haven't played in a good while," said the 55-year-old musician.

Paul will be joined by some special guests as he kicks off the gigs at Sherwood Pines forest on June 14, before he heads to Bedgebury Pinetum forest, Dalby forest, Cannock Chase forest and Delamere forest.

The Sonik Kicks singer joins Boyzone, who will also embark on four forest shows in June and July. The Irish boyband, who are celebrating their BZ20 anniversary, will perform at Sherwood Pines forest, Delamere forest, Thetford forest and Westonbirt Arboretum.

Frontman Ronan Keating said: "We're pleased to be part of the Forest Live tour this year for the first time. It's going to be great to perform our hits in such beautiful locations."

Tickets for Paul's concerts will be available from 9am on January 17, while tickets for Boyzone are on sale now from the Forestry Commission box office (0300 068 0400) and at www.forestry.gov.uk/music.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Libra:

You can communicate effectively about controversial topics like religion, politics and education. When you talk, people listen. Take this opportunity to lobby for changes to an outmoded institution. Making resources more readily available to the public will be a great use of your time. You're tired of seeing only the most privileged members of the community thrive. Promoting a more democratic approach will cause your stature to rise. Don't be surprised if a group asks you to run for office.More
