In pictures: Paul Weller in Thetford
Mod-father Paul Weller performed to a sell-out crowd at the opening weekend of Thetford Forest concerts on Friday, 5 June, 2009. Photographs by David Keller.
The venue at High Lodge in Thetford Forest housed 6000 people all waiting to see their hero, who has been rocking audiences since the late 1970s.
Paul played a number of songs old and new, with favourites such as Changing Man receiving rapturous applause from the thousands of fans.
Steve Craddock is a regular guitarist in Paul's band and most will know him for his work with Britpop band Ocean Colour Scene.
Paul gained rock stardom through former bands The Jam and The Style Council, before making a successful solo career in his own right.
The crowd chanted "Weller" throughout the evening, while Paul enjoyed regular chats to his fans as the evening drew colder.
Paul's former members in The Jam, Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler, have made a new band in their own right called From The Jam.
Paul's solo career took a high in 1995 with the release of album Stanley Road, which has become his best selling album to date and contains hit songs such as You Do Something To Me.
Paul has regularly ruled out a reformation with his former band members in The Jam, with him stating that it would "never, ever happen" and that reformations are "sad".
As the evening drew to a close at Thetford Forest, the crowd left happy after an hour and 40 minutes worth of pure 'Mod' entertainment.
