Noel Gallagher played a triumphant set of established hits and new material at the Tufnell Park Dome last night (Monday 2 February) - launching new album, Chasing Yesterday.
Playing for just over an hour, Gallagher’s set list including latest singles 'The Ballad of Mighty I' and 'In the Heat of the Moment', alongside Oasis classic 'It’s Good to be Free' and 'Don’t Look Back in Anger'.
However, fans were not treated to an extended set as, prior to the latter, Gallagher admitted, “They’ll be no encore tonight [because] I’m off to see Prince and he’s on stage in ten minutes”, before responding to a single boo with “don’t knock the Purple One”.
The gig represented a rare opportunity for fans to see Gallagher, who tours more extensively with UK arena dates scheduled for next month and a summer world tour, in such an intimate venue. Fans had had to face the lottery of applying through a ballot for tickets at the 600 capacity venue with thousands missing out, whilst posters plastered around the Dome made it clear that performance was also being filmed so expect to see footage emerge in the not too distant future.
Meanwhile, Noel Gallagher was recently announced as headliner of Calling Festival, at London's Clapham Common and also see appearances from Ryan Adams & The Shining, The Hives, Echo & The Bunnymen with many, many more to be announced.
Calling Festival takes place on Clapham Common on Saturday 4 July. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 6 February.
