Last December, Paul Weller had claimed that he had caught “the dreaded Covid” whilst touring. This forced the former Jam frontman to postpone the remaining dates for his UK Tour.
“I was so, so disappointed to not be able to finish the rest of the shows”, Weller later shared via Twitter. He added that he “caught the dreaded COVID so that was that!”.
