Secret Paul Weller gig released on Amazon Prime
James R | On 22, Jun 2015
Amazon Prime has added an exclusive Paul Weller gig to its streaming line-up.
The secret show, which was recorded at The Great Escape, is the latest in a string of gigs filmed up close and personal, as part of Amazons “Front Row” series. (Previous acts include The Kaiser Chiefs and Ed Sheeran.)
The iconic former front man of The Jam performed in front of 500 fans ahead of his UK tour, which kicks off in November. The set featured tracks from new album Saturns Pattern (released in the UK on 18th May in digital, CD and vinyl formats), including White Sky, title track Saturn Pattern, I’m Where I Should Be, as well as classic favourites Above the Clouds and The Changingman.
The 40-minute concert movie lands on Amazon Prime today (Monday 22nd June), complete with commentary from Weller.
“We always get nervous, I’ve been nervous for 40 years or more. Whether it’s a small gig or a big gig it doesn’t make too much odds, it’s the same nervousness,” Paul Weller told Amazon Prime Instant Video before going on stage. “It would matter of it was two people, two hundred people or twenty thousand, because it’s the moment of truth when you play live. It’s only you and the audience, there’s no hiding before anything at all.”
“We’re delighted to have filmed all these performances to give our Amazon Prime customers the best seat in the house at these great gigs,” adds Jay Marine, Vice President Amazon Instant Video EU.
Paul Weller LIVE at The Great Escape is available to stream on Amazon Prime, as part of a £5.99 monthly subscription.
