Noel Gallagher Dazzles Lincoln Crowd At Intimate Gig

Noel Gallagher turned in a stellar performance at an intimate gig in Lincoln to delight fans and leave a 200-strong crowd on their feet.

The veteran Oasis star rolled back the years in an impressive display at Bishop Grosseteste University featuring some of his most famous songs.

The hour-long set treated excited competition-winners to classics such as Wonderwall and Don't Look Back in Anger for more than an hour.

The event, which was sponsored by Lincoln College and put together by Lincs FM, saw the 48-year-old poke fun at the crowd every chance he got.

Sean Dunderdale, director of programming at Lincs FM, says he was delighted to bring the superstar to Lincoln.

Speaking after the gig he said: "It was amazing – we have been doing these up close gigs for a few years now and this was the best one of the lot.

"The fact that he did over an hour was fantastic.

"It was great to bring him to Lincoln – we started talking to his management in February.

"We bought Adele to Louth just before she became really famous but Noel is a big star right now.

"I feel ecstatic, it went so well."

Matthew Portess from Barton was blown away.

The 35-year-old said: "It was absolutely awesome – it was a once in a lifetime experience to see Noel play to such a small crowd and be so close up to him.

"I have never seen him before but I was left very impressed.

"Don't Look Back in Anger was my favourite – it made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck."

Neil Newell from Lincoln was left similarly impressed.

The 44-year-old said: "It was very good – I have seen Oasis a couple of times in places like Wembley but I preferred this.

"I was always more of a Liam fan but after tonight I have been convinced."

Paul Gascoigne from Lincoln says he wasn't a big fan before the gig but will be leaving with one of his albums.

The 44-year-old said: "Obviously I have got some Oasis albums but I had not heard any of his newer stuff – but I thought he was superb.

"I came here and did not know what to expect but it was great."

Shane Kelley and Dean Reed, who have been performing in an Oasis tribute act for the last three years, both paid tribute to the singer.

Shane, 40, from Lincoln said: "His music is quality – it is what he says on the tin – great British music."

While Dean, 32, also from Lincoln said: "I think after all these years he is still on top form – his last two albums have been really adventurous and he still has it."
