It's the second time the show has been rescheduled due to Covid, with the original date of November 2020 having been moved to July 2021.

Any ticket holders unable to attend the new date in 2022 are encouraged to seek a refund from their original point of purchase.

“Due to ongoing uncertainty through the pandemic, the decision has been made to reschedule Paul’s UK June/July Summer 2021 tour to March/April 2022,” a statement on Weller’s official Instagram page read.

“If you currently hold a ticket, keep this, as it will remain valid for the new date.”

Paul Weller will visit the Usher Hall in spring 2022.

Weller last visited the Capital in the summer of 2019, playing massive outdoor gig at Edinburgh Castle.

On that occasion, Evening News reviewer Chris Mackinnon observed: ‘the voice remains a distinctive instrument and he can rock a black t-shirt and jeans combo better than guys half his age.’

Meanwhile, Weller will release his 16th solo album, Fat Pop (Volume 1), on May 14.

Released in July 2020, Weller's last album, On Sunset, saw him become only the third artist to top the UK album chart in five consecutive decades, alongside Paul McCartney and John Lennon.
