Review: Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds In Belfast













Noel Gallagher had Belfast spirits soaring with his High Flying Birds at the Odyssey Arena tonight.

He said to the crowd: "What about you, Belfast? What's the craic? I'm going to play a few songs from my new record for those of you who were kind enough to get it already."

The former Oasis frontman played tacks from his second solo album Chasing Yesterday. He began his set with a full choir behind him for tracks from his first solo album: Stranded On The Wrong Beach and Everybody's On The Run.

Noel's signature guitar-driven sound from the height of his popularity in the 90s is still going strong. To the delight of the audience, Noel played Oasis classic Fade Away.

In The Heat Of The Moment allowed the fans to sing along with the NaNaNA part of the chorus. Lock All The Doors followed with the dazzling lights display to go along with each number.

A horn section and house piano accompanied Noel's band on Riverman. Death Of You And Me lifted the roof for the crowd with the main man in good voice.

"This is for the mums and dads," he said before Champagne Supernova.

Fresh from Carl Frampton's successful title defence on Saturday night, people had another reason to flock to the arena but this time it was celebrate Gallagher's music.

Noel, 47, is adored by his fans for work with brother Liam in the past but some might say he's still an electric performer. For a man who once sang about the Importance Of Being Idle, he's certainly kept the Belfast crowd busy dancing to his songs all night.
