Former Jam and Style Council front man, Paul Weller, has announced that he is play two gigs at London's Royal Albert Hall on May 24 and 25 next year

Currently working on his new album, the celebrated 'Modfather' will be returning to the Hyde Park venue with his band for the first time in more than five years.

Paul Weller's place in British rock history is already assured. His 1995 album, Stanley Road, was the best selling of his career - turning four-times platinum - and firmly cemented him at the heart of the nineties Britpop movement. It is a little known fact that Weller subsequently played guitar on Oasis' Champagne Supernova.

The Brit winner's latest album is due for release in spring 2010 and the show is set to combine the new material with established classics from his days in the Jam, the Style Council and his subsequent hugely successful solo career.

Tickets for the Royal Albert Hall dates go on sale tomorrow (Friday 27th Nov) at 9AM.
