The Modfather and [a]Undertones[/a] minus [b]Feargal Sharkey[/b] line up for [b]Witnness[/b]...

Paul Weller and a reformed Undertones, albeit minus original lead singer FEARGAL SHARKEY, are the latest names to be added to the bill for the two day Witnness festival in Ireland this summer.

They will join Beck, Travis, Ocean Colour Scene, Death In Vegas, Super Furry Animals, Asian Dub Foundation, Groove Armada, Happy Mondays and David Gray already confirmed for August 5 & 6 at Fairyhouse Racecourse in County Meath, just north of Dublin.

It will mark Weller's only Irish appearance of the summer and The Undertones second confirmed festival appearance since they got back together. As at the London Fleadh on June 10, local Derry man Paul McLoon will take Fergal Sharkey's role on vocals.

Meanwhile Weller, who shares a split cover on the NME this week (April 15) with a London only edition featuring Ken Livingstone, is expected to go straight to No. 1 in Britain on Sunday (April 16) with 'Heliocentric' his fifth solo album.
