Noel Gallagher Invites French Policeman To Paris When He Supports U2

Noel Gallagher has invited the French policeman who sung an emotional rendition of an Oasis song before England's recent friendly against France to one of his upcoming gigs in Paris.

Jean-Michel Mekil, a member of the Republican Guard Military Band, belted out a version of "Don't Look Back In Anger" before the game in tribute to the victims of the Manchester terror attack the previous month.

Mekil's moving performance went viral and has subsequently earned him a VIP invite to watch Gallagher's current band, the High Flying Birds, when they support U2 at the Stade de France in July.

"It's amazing. It will be fantastic to be in the audience to hear those songs," Mekil told AFP.

"Today I'm in Montlucon (in central France) for a ceremony with a police school, it's 35 degrees, and I was thinking it's not going to be so much fun today. But that is great news!"
