Sydney Opera House releases stream of Paul Weller’s 2018 performance

Watch the two hour, career-spanning, 32 song set now

The Sydney Opera House has shared an on demand stream of Paul Weller‘s 2018 performances at the iconic venue.

Weller performed a career-spanning two hour, 32 song set, drawing on his solo material as well as selections from his work with The Style Council and The Jam. A full setlist is below.

The performance began streaming from last night (September 18), but is now available indefinitely on demand on YouTube. Watch it below.


Weller released his 15th solo album, ‘On Sunset’, in July of this year. In a four-star review, NME said “it might not be quite the experimental opus you feel Weller’s still holding back, but that feels a churlish complaint when the songs are this well-written”.

Weller’s Opera House stream is part of the venue’s digital programming series, which kicked off earlier this year amid the coronavirus pandemic. In addition to streaming archival concerts from AirPanda BearJónsi and Alex Somers, among others, there have also been new, live-streamed performances filmed within the Opera House without an audience from the likes of Ziggy RamoGordi and Low Life.
