Perhaps as a reaction to Liam’s upcoming ‘Definitely Maybe’ tour – celebrating 30 years of Oasis’s first album by performing exclusively Oasis songs – Noel Gallagher is stirring up some classic Oasis rehashes with fresh versions of ‘Going Nowhere’ and ‘The Masterplan’.

These revamped tracks come straight from London’s legendary Abbey Road Studios, just in time for the 25th anniversary of Oasis’ renowned B-side album ‘The Masterplan’.

Accompanying these new takes are music videos featuring Gallagher and his High Flying Birds band giving a soulful performance in the iconic studio. These re-recorded tracks bring a fresh perspective and tie in with the lead-up to Gallagher’s imminent UK tour. The tour will start with a bang at Wembley Arena in London this Thursday (14th December), wrapping up the year with a final show on 21st December at Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena.

It’s been a whirlwind month for the Britpop legend, playing gigs across three continents to celebrate his latest album, Council Skies. The album landed a three-star review from whynow. We noted: “Whilst the never-ending news cycle surrounding Noel outside of his music has led to him and his High Flying Birds being somewhat underappreciated, Council Skies is by no means their best work.”

The excitement doesn’t end there – Gallagher has announced additional UK shows set for summer 2024, promising stops in Cardiff, Wigan, Halifax, and London in July. Gallagher’s creative spark shows no signs of dimming with his next solo album on the horizon, one packed with a double dose of new material. “I’ve had to stop writing because I need to get these songs recorded and get them out there so I can write some more,” he shares, keeping fans eagerly anticipating what’s next.
