Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds Announce Intimate Portsmouth Show
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds today announce their first UK live performance for 2024 with an intimate headline show at the Portsmouth Guildhall on Wednesday 20 March. Tickets for the show are on sale now.
The Portsmouth show will take place ahead of four huge, previously announced outdoor performances in summer 2024, including Wigan’s Robin Park (Thursday 18 July), London’s Alexandra Palace Park (Saturday 20 July), as well as returning to Cardiff Castle (Wednesday 17 July), and Halifax’s The Piece Hall (Thursday 1 August) following sell out shows at these venues in 2022.
Fans can look forward to a set of songs including a wide selection of Oasis classics, as well as featuring a cross section of material from the past dozen years of Noel Gallagher’s highly successful career as a solo artist with his band, the High Flying Birds.
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds recently released two new versions of the classic Oasis songs Going Nowhere and The Masterplan, recorded at London’s iconic Abbey Road Studios. Both songs have become mainstays in recent live sets, and met with a rapturous response. The original recorded versions of both tracks appear on Oasis’ B-sides album The Masterplan which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary, re-entering the UK Official Albums Chart at No. 2 in November.
The news comes as Gallagher kicked off his much anticipated run of sold out British arena shows this month, including London’s Wembley Arena on Thursday 14 December. The shows follow a busy November that has taken in touring across three continents, and cap off a highly active 2023 for Noel, which has seen the release of the critically and commercially acclaimed album Council Skies, a mammoth 26 date USA tour, and epic headline outdoor shows including Crystal Palace Bowl and Brighton Beach. The summer culminated with the band’s biggest ever headline gig to date, a celebratory homecoming show at Manchester’s Wythenshawe Park on August Bank Holiday weekend.
