Latitude Festival 2015 - Noel Gallagher's High Fly

The singer was joined on stage by Oasis bandmate Gem Archer.

Noel Gallagher supported himself on stage at London's Royal Albert Hall last night (Thursday 10 December).

The outspoken star was set to play a special gig at the iconic venue, but he couldn't find a band to open for him, so he simply played twice.

According to Gigwise, speaking to the crowd, the singer revealed: “You do realise the only reason we’re doing this is because we couldn’t find a support band?

“Everybody’s too busy apparently."

The first set saw him joined by former bandmate Gem Archer for a semi-acoustic set, including Oasis tracks Wonderwall and Sad Song.

 

For his main set, Noel returned to the stage, joking that he'd be a "tough act to follow" before treating fans to an unforgettable night with his High Flying Birds backed by a choir.

 

The emotional performances and the iconic venue didn't stop the crowd from being as lively as ever, with one woman invading the stage to place a lingering kiss on the star's cheek.

 

Fans took to Twitter soon after to praise the "brilliant night", showing the impressive stage setup.

 

Meanwhile, the Ballad Of The Mighty I singer is set to delight even more of his fans with a UK and European tour in 2016. 

His string of UK gigs will kick off at Glasgow's SSE Hydro on Thursday 21 April and end in Bournemouth International Centre and Pavilion on Friday 30 April.
