"We weren’t just coming back to play the Manchester Indoor Arena, we were coming back to play Maine Road. We’d all spent years of our childhood there. It was the crowd who made it, for me".

Noel Gallagher when asked what his career high was in 2006.

"I guess, is playing at Maine Road in Manchester because it was the grounds of the football team I’ve supported since I was a child. It was the first stadium we played and it was amazing".

"Maine Road was where we all used to go as kids. So I was standing there, trying to make sure I never forgot this moment. And now I can’t remember a fucking thing about it, and yet I stood there for an hour and a half”
