What ACTUALLY Happened At Noel Gallagher's Narcos-Themed 50th Bash
30 May 2017, 20:48
Radio X's Gordon Smart was there and gave us his hilarious rundown of the star-studded event.
Noel Gallagher had a huge Narcos-themed party over the bank holiday weekend at Aynhoe Park in Oxfordshire, and it's fair to say that it was memorable.
So much so, it even caught the attention of Wagner Moura, who plays Pablo Escobar in the hit series, and sent Gallagher a personal birthday message.
Radio X's Gordon Smart was among the esteemed guests, who included the likes of Bono, Damon Albarn, Johnny Marr, Madonna, Sir Bob Geldof, Michael Fassbender, The Stone Roses' Mani, Russell Brand, The Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde, Kasabian's Serge Pizzorno and many MANY more.

Madonna gatecrashed the party
Yep, that's right; you may have have seen the picture Madge tweeted of herself at the bash, but apparently she wasn't even invited! Despite being welcomed with open arms, Gallagher's first words upon seeing the Queen Of Pop were: "Who invited you?"

Anyone who's followed Noel and Oasis around the world will also know of the great man, Scully, who was so starstruck, he was apparently speaking to Madonna like she was the actual Queen!
The guests who were actually invited were just as epic
Models, actors, supermodels, fellow musicians, roadies and ticket touts all turned out at the event of the year. The star studded list included: Bono, Adam Clayton, Michael Fassbender, Woody Harrelson, Chrissie Hynde, Johnny Marr, Lars Ulrich, Alicia Vikander, Paul Simonon, Helena Christensen, Stella McCartney, Sir Bob Geldof, Matt Smith, Lily James, The Stone Roses' Mani, Primal Scream's Bobbie Gillespie and Andrew Inns, Mike Pickering, Damon Albarn, Poppy Delevingne, Sadie Frost, Kasabian's Serge Pizzorno, Sadie Frost, The Cuban Brothers, Radio X's Russell Brand and Matt Morgan, David Walliams, Hurts' Theo Hutchcraft and more.
See if you can spot any of them them lifting Gallagher up in the air:
The venue was decked out
In-keeping with the South American vibe, a mariachi band also welcomed guests at the door.
Russell Brand kicked things off and The Cuban Brothers played an epic set
The Comedian and Radio X DJ started off the proceedings by introducing Gallagher's wife Sara, who introduced a little-known Irish musician named Bono.
Gallagher came on and told the guests it was actually his "joint 50th" with his wife, Sara, who had been planning the event for ages.
The Cuban Brothers then played a belter of a set, getting the party into full swing.
Bono bought Noel a red scooter and wrote him a moving poem
The U2 frontman gifted the Ballad of the Mighty I singer with a piece of poetry he'd penned in his bedroom only 30 minutes before. Plus, he only went and presented him with this beauty:
Other gifts for the Oasis man included a silk Man City boxing gown, which he apparently spent some time dancing around in.
Bono was spotted playing the new U2 album to Woody Harrelson
Not content to show-off his writing skills during his tribute to Mr NG, Bono was also spotted sharing the band's latest effort to the Hollywood mega-star.
There were bowls full of self-help hangover cures
The rock 'n' roll hangover survival pack dished out for the party featured the likes of Immodium, Alkaseltzer and Dioralyte.
