Early June NOEL GALLAGHER dropped his 4th LP with his High Flying Bird. Council Skies
is a musical triumph proving once again that Noel G is a solid gold songsmith, specialised
in writing uncomplicated, but very effective anthems.
He played a massive – more than 25.000 fans – homecoming concert
on August‘s Bank Holiday at Manchester’s Wythenshawe Park.
BBC said about the show: “Noel Gallagher has delivered a superb career-spanning set at an emotionally charged homecoming show in Manchester. His gig at Wythenshawe Park on Saturday, a relative stone’s throw from his childhood home, was always going to be an big moment for the city. Mixing Oasis and High Flying Birds’ finery, it was the set that proved just how powerful a songwriter he is. It also showed why, despite what a baying crowd would wish, he has no need to consider a reunion with his brother.
More than 25,000 gathered in the park, which was hosting a huge gig for the first time, and many had memories of Knebworth, of Barrowlands, of those two legendary nights at Maine Road in mind, which meant that as fiery and ferocious as the delivery of his post-Oasis songs were, it was those from the 90s that really got the crowd going. But if that much longed-for reunion never comes to pass, there might just be enough brilliance in Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds to make up for it.”
The full performance was filmed and it will stream from September 21 on via the
On Air website and apps in cinematic 4K UHD with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.
