Former Oasis star Noel Gallagher has pledged support for a charity gig in Greenock.
The singer-songwriter handed over a signed Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds CD to be auctioned.
Greenock organiser Michael Scott is the brains behind next month’s gig, which is headlined by The Complete Stone Roses and is in aid of Ardgowan Hospice.
He contacted the musician’s management team and other top bands and has been delighted at the response.
Michael said: “A massive thank-you to Noel Gallagher and his manager for sending this.
“I’m a huge fan of Noel’s — I might have to auction it for myself!”
Other items include signed CDs from James and souvenirs from The Libertines.
He said: “They all think it’s amazing that I’m organising such a big event. Some of them have had family members cared for at a hospice.”
Michael also managed to secure a signed CD from indie rockers The Charlatans after meeting them last month.
He said: “They’re a cracking bunch of guys.”
Tickets have been selling fast for the gig, which is being held at Greenock Town Hall on Saturday 21 March.
Michael said: “The concert is nearly sold out after increasing the capacity.
“We are also trying to arrange a big after-party as well.”
Michael wants to raise as much as he can for a charity which is close to his heart.
He said: “I’ve had family and friends who have been looked after in the hospice.”
The Soviets are one of the support bands and tickets cost £17.50.
