HE’S a Manchester-born musician who continues to roll out the hits.
Noel Gallagher will headline the Sunday night of Victorious Festival with his new band, High Flying Birds.
Gallagher was the vocalist and lead guitarist in the 1990s alternative rock band Oasis and began a solo career after quitting the band in 2009.
Oasis produced many hit singles such as ‘Supersonic’ and ‘Wonderwall’.
After a much-publicized falling-out with Liam, Noel quit Oasis in 2009. ‘We were backstage waiting to go onstage to 30,000 people in Paris,’ Noel said in an interview.
‘The tour manager came in and said, “Five minutes!” We broke up within that five minutes. I’m not proud of that, but all things come to an end.’
His new band, High Flying Birds, released their self-titled debut album in October 2011.
It topped the UK Albums Chart and has since sold over 750,000 copies in the UK.
Noel is good friends with Richard Ashcroft, lead singer of the Verve.
The 48-year-old dad-of-three married Scottish publicist Sara MacDonald in 2011 with his close friend Russell Brand serving as best man.
