“As Oasis‘ guitarist and chief songwriter, he spent a decade at the helm of Britain’s biggest band. Last month, he celebrated his solo album debuting at No. 1 on the UK charts. Brother Liam’s new band, Beady Eye, only managed No. 3.
But Noel Gallagher — whose band High Flying Birds [is on tour now] — isn’t strutting.
“The only thing I was certain of with this album was that (mellow tune) ‘The Death of You and Me’ be the first single,” he said from London. “I just thought now wasn’t the time for grandstanding. I thought it was time to be a little more cool and calm.”
You could read between the lines and guess there will be no Oasis reunion. Fans have buzzed about the band touring for the 20th anniversary of 1995 blockbuster “(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?”

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds began their two night run at the Beacon Theatre last night (11/14) and conclude their visit to NYC with a show TONIGHT (11/15). Tickets are still available. Though Gallagher has launched this new band with a new album, he wasn’t afraid to dip his toes into classic Oasis material like “Wonderwall” and “Supersonic”. The full setlist is below, under the rest of the pictures and two videos from the Monday night show.
