Noel Gallagher And Richard Ashcroft To Play A One-Off Gig Next Month














Noel Gallagher will perform a set ‘packed’ with Oasis classics in Dubai next month.

The iconic guitarist and singer will make his UAE debut on Sandance Beach on Friday March 15 – and promoters have told the crowd to expect a set brimming with Oasis hits.

Former Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft will also perform at the one-off gig, which is dubbed as being ‘presented by Sandance’, rather than a full Sandance festival.

Gallagher will be backed onstage by his current band the High Flying Birds, whose eponymous debut album was released to critical acclaim in 2011.

However the 45-year-old rocker is expected to relieve his ’90s heyday when he plays in Dubai. The gig’s promoters have seen a sample of Gallagher’s 90-minute set and are expecting ‘around 75 percent’ of the tunes to be drawn from Oasis’ back catalogue, the bulk of which was written exclusively by Gallagher.

‘This is going to be really special,’ a source said, ‘he’s not promoting an album or doing a tour this year, it’s just a one-off show of Oasis classics.’

Ashcroft will support Gallagher playing solo acoustic at the gig, relieving the memorable set he performed at the third Sandance event in October 2011.
