Rock star Paul Weller has landed a theatre in a jam after lighting up on stage.
The Cliffs Pavilion, in Southend, Essex, was issued with a warning after council bosses found Weller flouted anti-smoking regulations.
The ex-frontman of the Jam and Style Council performed at the venue on Saturday and a warning was issued.
“We think the law was breached so we have issued a warning,” Steve Ramm, of Southend Borough Council, said.
“We considered the matter but under the terms of our enforcement policy, we have issued the warning to Southend Theatres Limited at this stage.
“If a similar occurrence were to take place in future, we would be likely to take further action.”
IT’S WELLER! HE’S AN ABSOLUTE GOD!
listen, i wouldn’t give a flying one if he sacrificed a virgin live on stage, as long as the gig was a good one!
roll on 22nd…….nottingham here we come!
