Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds Announce 2023 UK Tour
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have announced 2023 headline arena dates across the UK, calling at Hull, London, Birmingham, Cardiff, Leeds, Glasgow and finishing in Liverpool on 21 December.
Tickets will be available for special pre-sale on Wednesday 29 March for fans who pre-order the forthcoming new album Council Skies via the official Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds store and on general ticket sale from 9AM BST Friday 31 March.
The tour announcement follows the release of Dead To The World, a remarkable new track taken from Council Skies, due 2 June via Sour Mash Records.
The epic Dead To The World is “by some distance my favourite tune on the album,” Noel says. “It has this film noir vibe. It’s not like anything else I’ve ever done before. It’s very melancholic, but I like that. I’m a Gemini – I’m as up as I am down, and the trick is to meet somewhere in the middle and turn that into music.”
The release of Dead To The World follows fan excitement as mysterious orchestral clips filmed by Noel himself at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, London emerged on social media at the beginning of the year. Watch here.
Dead To The World is one of several songs on the album that boast strings arranged by the hugely talented Rosie Danvers, a long-time High Flying Birds collaborator. Noel says “Rosie gets what I do. Spending a weekend recording strings in Abbey Road… that’s one of the great privileges in a musician’s life. It sounds majestic.”
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ December 2023 UK Arena Tour dates will follow an array of UK outdoor venue & festival performances, including a huge homecoming show at Manchester’s Wythenshawe Park in August. The High Flying Birds have also confirmed a 26-date USA tour, co-headlining with US alternative rockers Garbage. The live dates begin in tandem with the release of Council Skies and run throughout the summer. Tickets for the US tour and summer live performances are on sale now.
