Noel Gallagher announces homecoming Manchester shows


Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have announced two homecoming shows in Manchester as part of a run of gigs that also sees them perform at the Royal Albert Hall.

Gallagher and his band will play two nights in Noel’s hometown of Manchester taking to the stage at the O2 Apollo Manchester on the 24th and 25th March.

As well as what is set to be two raucous nights in the city that Oasis helped put on the musical map, Gallagher and the High Flying Birds will also play at the illustrious Royal Albert Hall.

Arriving at the iconic venue as part of the Teenage Cancer Trust benefit concerts which run that week, Gallagher will perform on March 27th, adding a bit of rock and roll to the Friday night’s proceedings. Stereophonics, Paul Weller, Groove Armada, and Nile Rodgers are also on the bill for the show series.

Tickets for all three shows go on sale this Friday 24th at 9.30am GMT and are available here.

The band are also preparing to release the EP Blue Moon Rising which sees Noel Gallagher‘s High Flying Birds go in an interesting new direction with their sound. It features recent singles as well as remixes of the title track.

The album, that arrives on 6th March, will also feature the song ‘Wandering Star’ which was released earlier this year with a video that features The Irishman star Stephen Graham in a lead role.
