Another Review: Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds At The Royal Albert Hall

The band performed at the prestigious venue in aid of the charity's annual concert series.

The main focus was on their new album Chasing Yesterday but that didn't put Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds fans off at the band's Teenage Cancer Trust gig at The Royal Albert Hall on Saturday (March 28).

The crowd were as passionate and vocal about the follow-up to the eponymous debut from the five-piece, showing that Noel's solo efforts aren't just a mere side project, if ever there will be a reunion with brother Liam.

To the sold-out concert's delight, Gallagher and co plunged into an Oasis track, Fade Away, four songs in and later in the set, Champagne Supernova, Digsy's Dinner and Don't Look Back In Anger before closing with The Masterplan.

On form as ever, Noel chastised a fan for sitting down in the front row before quipping: "Did you buy an album? Did you buy a T-shirt? Did you buy a programme? Then I love you. And my wife loves you. And my kids definitely love you."

Support on the night was provided by Baltimore synthpop band Future Islands.

The Trust's patron Roger Daltry CBE appeared on stage ahead of the gig and praised Noel for being a long-time supporter of the charity.

This year marks the fifteenth year of the annual concert series, having raised over £20 million to help support young people with cancer.
