Music icon Noel Gallagher will take to the stage for headline shows in Australia with his band High Flying Birds next March.

The principal songwriter, lead guitarist & vocalist for Brit-pop mega-band Oasis will be flying to Australia for select capital city shows and a headline performance at Byron Bay Bluesfest.

Last on our shores in 2012 for a headline spot at the Big Day Out and run of sold-out headline shows, these new Oz performances come on the back of Gallagher’s critically acclaimed new album Chasing Yesterday. For Oasis fans too, recent UK set lists have included classics such as ‘Champagne Supernova’, ‘The Masterplan’, ‘Whatever’ and ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’.

Down Under to top the bill on the 2016 East Coast Blues and Roots Festival, these shows are a part of an extensive world tour which has included headline dates at some of the world’s biggest music festivals, including T in the Park, Latitude, Governors Ball (USA), Benicassim and Fuji Rock in Japan.
