Noel Gallagher Opens For Himself At London Concert (Top Story)

On Monday Noel Gallagher Opens For Himself At London Concert was a top story. Here is the recap: (Gibson) Last Thursday Noel Gallagher played the first of two shows at London's Royal Albert Hall. But due to some (unexplained) "SNAFU", there was no support band. So Gallagher ended up, without intention, "supporting" himself.

Gallagher told the audience, "Thanks for getting here early by the way. I am only doing this because we couldn't find a [EXPLETIVE!] support band. I ain't joking neither. My manager goes, 'I've got a [EXPLETIVE!] great idea, you can be the support band and play for four hours'. I get double the rider though, so every cloud..."

So the support was Gallagher himself revisiting Oasis classics including "It's Good To Be Free", "Cast No Shadow", "Slide Away" and "Wonderwall." Noel joked, according to the NME, that being his own support act "does give me the chance to blow myself off the stage."

He returned 30 minutes later to play a full-set as Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds with full choir and brass section. Read more - here.
